about us

We're Nordcloud Klarity

– The team behind a cloud management toolkit giving you full control of your cloud estates and costs.

We like to say Nordcloud Klarity is like autopilot for cloud management, because our goal is to help businesses manage cloud costs, automate operations, improve security and accelerate development with no manual work.

We’ve made the onboarding process as simple as possible, with all key data on one dashboard, so you can sit back and enjoy your cloud journey.

Born and raised in the cloud

Nordcloud Klarity was developed by Nordcloud, an IBM Company, the European leader in cloud migration, application development and managed services.

At first, we wanted this toolkit to help our in-house managed cloud teams with their work across Microsoft Azure, AWS, GCP and on-prem VMware.

Because these dashboards made their work with the cloud so much easier, the benefit it could bring to other businesses was clear. Now, Nordcloud Klarity is a SaaS solution supported by Nordcloud experts across Europe.

What we do

There are four Nordcloud Klarity tools in the toolkit:

Nordcloud Klarity Core

Nordcloud Klarity ImageFactory

Nordcloud Klarity AutoPatcher

Nordcloud Klarity AutoBackup

Together, this suite of cloud management tools gives you the facts you need to understand and optimise your cloud costs, infrastructure, security and data, empowering you to make strategic business decisions.

Check out how we helped some of our recent customers save 15% on cloud spend and over 40% every month on their golden image solution.

We're part of something bigger

In 2020 Nordcloud became part of the IBM family, with Nordcloud Klarity being at the core of how IBM will help businesses drive value from the cloud.

From its routes in Europe, Nordcloud Klarity is now enabling industry-leading FinOps practices in organisations all over the world, under its IBM equivalent names:

IBM Multicloud Accelerator (Nordcloud Klarity Core)

IBM Multicloud Machine Image Toolkit (Nordcloud Klarity ImageFactory)

IBM Multicloud Autopatcher (Nordcloud Klarity AutoPatcher)

IBM Multicloud Autobackup (Nordcloud Klarity AutoBackup)

Our story

Our unexpected beginning

We actually didn't set out one day intending to develop cloud cost management tooling. Klarity got its unexpected start in 2014 when we started providing customers with access to a custom cost reporting tool. Our developers had built it to be able to deliver better solutions to customers - but soon its wider benefit became clear.
