Basic concepts to get start working with the Abiquo multi-cloud platform.

Welcome to Abiquo!

The Abiquo platform is a true hybrid cloud system that manages multiple private data centers and public clouds through a single user interface. Abiquo offers the building blocks for a customized cloud service, with functionality delivered through the Abiquo UI and integration points.

  • Abiquo enables Cloud Administrators to manage resources in multi-cloud environments and to control their use through policy.
  • Abiquo provides governance through dashboards in the UI, as well as reports showing how the infrastructure is being 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.
