New Requirements for Automation, Orchestration and Governance of Hybrid Clouds, Microservices, Containers, and DevOps
OTTAWA, Ontario – July 31, 2017 – Embotics®, the cloud automation company, and Enterprise Management Associates will reveal new priorities for cloud management during a live webinar on Tuesday August 1, 2017 at 12:00PM EDT/9:00AM PDT. Industry experts Torsten Volk, Managing Research Director, EMA and Scott Davis, CTO, Embotics will headline the event and provide in-depth analysis of requirements for the next generation of Cloud Management Platform (CMP) technologies.
In today’s digital and cloud-centric world, IT is now undergoing a significant transformation. According to recent research, by 2020, 80% of all new applications will be cloud-native, running in containers, and created using agile DevOps processes.
With its focus on infrastructure-as-a-Service, a CMP 1.0 (or first generation Cloud Management Platform) provided access management, service management and service optimization components that sit above the virtualization and cloud-enabled hardware layers.
Today, IaaS enablement remains important, but additionally a CMP needs to meet the requirements of managing a more application-centric world. Embotics is calling this new wave of innovation brought about by the advent of container orchestration CMP 2.0, where a Cloud Management Platform not only has to be infrastructure centric, but also application centric, and crucially, be able to do both equally well, being able to provide management services not only to legacy virtual machines, but also to the new world of cloud native applications running within containers.
Beyond the application development use case, CMP 2.0 systems need to transparently enforce cloud governance across varied public cloud (AWS, Azure, Google, etc.) environments. Any policy based automation needs to provide the proper level of control through orchestration, while still enabling engineering teams the freedom to consume public cloud resources as they need.
CMP 2.0 systems also need to be able to provide intelligent placement of new workloads based on the current demand for resources available, as well as the demand of the new workload. It should determine which host the workload should be placed on along with the storage to access, ensuring that new workloads do not create resource contention. All decisions surrounding the placement of workloads also need to abide by any business or licensing constraints that are defined within the system.
