Welcome to Archera,

Our goal at Archera is to enable Engineering and Finance to make smarter decisions around infrastructure planning and commitment purchases. To help teams we have core tools around Segment Views, which are for Infrastructure and Team Planning and FinOps views for purchasing and financial analysis.

To get started connect your systems to Archera through the Integrations Page.

Once that is complete you can start to build out Segments in the Segment Dashboard and Invite Users.

The Archera application is broken out into two core flows. The first is Segment Views that represent Infrastructure and Team Planning. The second is Commitment & Renewal Planning that are used for DevOps and FinOps users who are making commitment purchasing.

Segment Page Walk Throughs


Segment Explorer connects directly to your cloud provider and pulls costs and other details out of the system. In addition to unique queries for that provider, you can overlay custom KPIs and other metrics to see how you compare. We also have standardized alerting and anomalies to help keep your team on track.

Our Segment Planner tool allows Teams to do monthly and Quarterly planning. Using your actual cloud spend as a baseline our tools help your teams create budgets and forecasts for specific scenarios. So you can plan for changes in the business such as increase or decrease of customers or a shift in technology.

Infrastructure History allows you to explorer your infrastructure at a granular level such as EC2 and lambda. It also allows you to search on tag information.

Engineering and FinOps teams can also track the entire lifecycle of infrastructure recommendations. Rightsizing actions from being recommended to executed you have visibility into the goal and stage of the recommendation. Here you can see an unattached EBS volume that has been identified by the system and the team has taken action to resolve.
