Cloud Cruiser is a company which provides solutions for financial management of cloud solutions has announced that an express version of its Cloud Cruiser software will be included in the upcoming version of Windows Azure pack which will be released later this week as part of the Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 wave. Cloud Cruiser provides solutions not only for Microsoft but also Cisco, HP, VMware, Amazon and OpenStack.

The solution will offer financial management, chargeback, and cloud billing to enterprises and hosters utilizing cloud solutions based on Windows Azure, and fills an important GAP in the current solutions provided by Microsoft. It’s very normal that Microsoft gives partners the opportunity to fill those gaps.
