This functionality allows you to natively purchase and provision AWS, Azure, CenturyLink Cloud, Dedicated Cloud Compute (DCC), or Dedicated Cloud Compute Foundation (DCCF) through one centralized platform. Benefit from simplified, consolidated billing and account management for this and any other CenturyLink Cloud services you use.

Buy Azure or AWS Cloud straight from Cloud Application Manager.

Buy or Bring AWS or Azure Cloud

Connect to existing AWS, Azure, DCC, or DCCF cloud instances from Cloud Application Manager, or purchase new instances natively from the platform. So anything you can buy from AWS or Azure can be purchased and managed from a single interface.

Control IT Sprawl

Organizations can easily find themselves with tens of thousands of VMs spread across multiple providers. But how do they know which services are actually delivering the most value? Or how the cost of these services maps to revenue-generating activities? IT Sprawl is currently one of the largest challenges for all IT departments, and Cloud Application Manager is a powerful tool to meet that challenge.


"[Cloud Application Manager] is the one place where you can see everything. All the scripts are there... even if something does go wrong, people other than me know where to look and fix because they're used to serving up environments from [it]."
