Using Embotics vCommander to Automate Hybrid Cloud and the ‘New Stack’ Technology

Back in July, Embotics introduced the what we see as the future of cloud management platforms – CMP 2.0. This next wave of CMPs is aimed at empowering organizations to better understand, manage and automate hybrid cloud, containers and DevOps. Since then, we’ve continued to develop our product roadmap, and share ideas with industry peers and experts at events like VMworld.

CMP 2.0: Understanding the New Priorities for Managing Hybrid Cloud, Containers and DevOps

In order to effectively compete, today’s businesses need to be able to deliver features, services and solutions far more rapidly than ever before – while maintaining a high quality and rich user experience. As such, businesses are strategically investing in moving modernized, complex enterprise applications to the cloud, enabling IT and business operations to sell more effectively, increase competitive differentiation and more.

DevOps: The Game Changer (Pt2)

In part 1 of this blog post, I discussed the overarching principles of a DevOps methodology, and how it can bring a profound benefit to your ROI. But, another impetus for DevOps is the cloud services world. In the cloud native world, delivery is not preparing a software package for a customer to install or upgrade in their environment. Instead customers purchase a service that developer is providing, hence deployment means updating a cloud-based production environment in a seamless manner while making sure there is no disruption in service.

DevOps: The Game Changer (Pt1)

DevOps is a game changing methodology of iterative software development that embraces close collaboration between contributing software developers, QA and IT operations staff. Rather than discrete handoffs between teams, DevOps represent a continuous technology flow where development, QA and operations are interwoven in a precise and predictable way. It’s both a software development process methodology, as well as a toolchain implementation recipe.

DevOps & Modern Software Development Processes

Embotics CTO Scott H. Davis recently published a blog discussing the process innovations related to DevOps methodology. In the blog, Scott reviews how DevOps encourages rapid integrations and frequent communication between team members that enable the delivery of higher quality and more predictable results delivered by this iterative style of development.

Puppet Plus Embotics vCommander Equals Faster ITaaS

If you use Puppet Labs® Puppet to deliver ITaaS, you can seamlessly integrate Puppet with Embotics® vCommander™ to provision and manage Puppet nodes. With the vCommander Cloud Management Platform (CMP), you can predefine your Puppet node configuration right in the service catalog. Requested VMs can be automatically deployed and configured as Puppet nodes. You can also set up automatic VM decommissioning driven by expiry date or by a change request process, including removal of the node configuration from the Puppet master.

Looking to Accelerate Your Testing?

Are you looking to accelerate your software testing and leverage your existing automated tests? Why not automate the entire process end-to-end like we do here at Embotics® using vCommander™?

Imagine that you’re a software tester, and when you arrive to work each morning, the latest software build has already been installed, and your automated regression tests have already been executed. The test results are then automatically sent to your email inbox. This isn’t a magical futuristic scenario, but what happens each day here at Embotics.
