Greatly extends functionality for vCommander—best-in-class, platform-neutral cloud management platform across private, public and hybrid clouds
OTTAWA, Ontario – November 12, 2014 – Embotics®, a leading provider of Cloud Management Software, today announced new integrations with Puppet Labs, Inc., one of the world’s leading providers of IT automation software for system administrators.
The announcement comes in conjunction with the latest release of Embotics’ award-winning software vCommander™ V5.2. Integration with Puppet enables Embotics’ customers to provision applications, control configurations and automate repetitive tasks while continuing to deliver superior Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
The Puppet Labs’ software integration also translates into multiple ancillary benefits. These include optimizing the consumption of heterogeneous IT environments; controlling workloads based on configurable policies related to cost, SLA, security or business rules; reducing incidents through standardization and automation of configuration management tasks; and ensuring consistency in virtual machine (VM) and app provisioning processes.
“Embotics remains committed to delivering the industry’s most advanced, flexible, cost-effective and platform-neutral hybrid cloud management platform for enterprises and service providers of all sizes. Working with the top configuration management company in the world, Puppet Labs, is a natural extension of that commitment,” said Michael Torto, CEO of Embotics. “Integrating with Puppet allows our customers superior agility by automating repetitive tasks and allowing their business to move more quickly, all while avoiding platform vendor lock-in and allowing for the mixing and matching of heterogeneous environments.”
“We are happy to have Embotics and their highly rated vCommander 5.2 as an integration partner of Puppet,” said John Leon, Director of Strategic Alliances at Puppet Labs. “vCommander with Puppet is a great way to optimize the consumption of heterogeneous IT environments and control where workloads run based on configurable policies related to cost, SLA, security or business rules.”
With the company’s Puppet integration, Embotics vCommander is even more beneficial to large enterprises and service providers. Companies that use vCommander can now enable multi-hypervisor, multi-cloud provisioning of infrastructure, applications and complex multi-tier services. vCommander supports unified management and orchestration across one or more hypervisors and clouds, including VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and HP Helion Public Cloud.
