Why Cloud Asset Inventory?

Cloud-native infrastructure today is fragmented because:

  1. Resource Proliferation in the Cloud

    With containers and serverless functions, services have become more abstract, and the size of the individual deliverable has become smaller but many times more numerous.

  2. Bulkhead Partitioning of Resources

    Cloud providers have made partitioning resources into separate accounts, projects, and namespaces easy. This allows for better isolation and security, but also makes it harder to get a consistent view of the state of the world.

  3. Shared Ownership

    Engineers using Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) in CI/CD pipelines make it easy to spin up new resources.

  4. Multiple Service Providers

    Many organizations use multiple services and cloud providers to take advantage of the unique features of each provider.

Cloud Asset Inventory

Fix Inventory helps you overcome these challenges by providing a single source of truth for your cloud assets.

With Fix Inventory, you can search, explore, and manage your cloud resources in a consistent manner, no matter which cloud provider, account, project, or namespace they are in.

Fix Inventory's complete, up-to-date picture of your infrastructure combined with automations enable you to easily manage all of your cloud assets.
