Welcome to Abiquo!

The Abiquo platform is a true multicloud system that manages private data centers and public clouds through a single console, and enables you to offer your customers a single cloud bill. Abiquo also has the building blocks for a customized cloud service, with functionality delivered through the Abiquo UI, REST API, and integration points.

  • Abiquo enables Cloud Administrators to manage resources in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, in an agentless environment that supports progressive onboarding
  • Abiquo cloud users can easily obtain resources by self-service but always under the cloud policy and governance that you define  
  • Abiquo's cost management and resource optimization system includes billing dashboards with estimated bills, and budgets that can trigger automation
  • Abiquo provides inventory and classification with multi-cloud tags, the virtual resource inventory screens, as well as reports showing how the infrastructure is used and where VMs exist on the platform.
  • Abiquo meters all operations, which means that it measures and tracks all resources allocated or consumed. This enables accounting and billing of the cloud service usage. 

The first steps are to become familiar with Abiquo concepts and the basic architecture. Then you can obtain a test installation of the platform, log in, and work through a guided tour with basic tasks. And then refer to the basic guides that describe how to use the platform.
