Adaptive Computing has rolled out Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 to help organizations more rapidly and easily move to the cloud. The latest update includes out-of-the-box integration with existing infrastructure, new dashboards and even cloud project budgeting features.
Moab’s latest streamlined dashboard portal provides users and admins customizable data views and management actions for common tasks. Further, admins can aggregate and summarized data so they have better overall picture of their current cloud conditions, officials said. Moab’s update also lets admins improve budget-planning decisions, and even automatically revise budgets.
Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 is the latest update to Adaptive’s intelligent cloud management end-to-end platform. It provides a range of automated features to support cloud service optimization across the full lifecycle. Benefits of the architecture will provide users with agility, cost savings and service performance, according to Adaptive’s CEO Robert Clyde.
“As more businesses introduce private clouds, it’s important to keep costs at a minimum by making the most of the current infrastructure. We designed Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 to aid them in making the smoothest, most efficient transition possible,” Clyde said in a statement. “Updated accounting features and improved integration with third-party technology will make the process even more beneficial for organizations.”
Moab Cloud Suite provides these cloud-enabling capabilities:
- Ability to enable IT to support self-service requests via an easy-to-use service catalog portal that speeds delivery while reducing IT staff burden and costs
- Auto provisioning to quickly deliver physical, virtual, full application, or custom services in minutes without admin touch or costs using flexible methods
- Chargeback or showback for service usage with flexible rates and charging models
- Reporting and management via admin dashboard to identify issues, guide planning, and optimize performance including Splunk-ready cloud operations logging
Moab Cloud Suite also expanded policy management to help IT optimize placements of cloud services – without fear of poor utilization or service failures, according to Clyde. In specific, Moab’s intelligent multi-dimensional policies provide automated management of cloud services and resources. Simple policy management via automated dashboards; and lets IT leverage their current management and monitoring tools.
Admins can also use Moab to create different groups and sub-groups, as well as define who can or cannot access certain information in the cloud. For specific access controls, admins can assign users to teams, roles or responsibilities, which proscribes access to specific resources, Clyde added.
Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 also integrates effortlessly with virtualization, management and other cloud platforms, such as the new VMware Center connector (Moab Cloud Suite vCenter Connector), HP Cloud Services Automation Connector (HP CSA) and others.
Driving these upgrades is Moab Cloud Suite’s core Moab intelligence engine. This patented technology automates service requesting, provisioning, optimization, and management.
