Application owners, development and testing teams, support and training organizations can create, deploy and reconfigure multi-tier system configurations in seconds. Self-service management with policy-based access control reduces administrative burden and infrastructure management costs, and empowers businesses to deliver new or updated applications rapidly and with greater agility.
Provisioning Automation & Application Deployment
Are you looking to optimize your testing and development processes, reducing your time to market? Commander simplifies and streamlines the process of gathering and interconnecting machines, installing and maintaining operating systems, adding and updating applications and resolving problems such as software bugs. Commander supports open, continuous communication among members and subgroups within a large, diverse development team. Users can deploy, capture, and share multi-tier application environments in seconds while IT remains in administrative control. Get automation working for you.
Virtual Lab Management & DevOps
Do you want to give your development and business unit teams the power to be self-sufficient without sacrificing control over your infrastructure? Commander provides lab self-service and automation. Leveraging REST APIs Commander integrates directly with your continuous integration (CI) servers and build management tools. This allows for continuous testing and integration of software applications, shortening delivery schedules and improving software quality.
Providing a software-defined datacenter for your users should be uncomplicated. Commander provides a flexible quota model based on either resources or costs, and that’s easily tailored to your organization’s needs in a multi-tenant fashion. IT staff remain in control of access rights, resource quotas and deployment policies, while at the same time empowering self-service to the various organizational teams.
VM Sharing & Collaboration
Do you want to increase development productivity by enabling easy sharing of virtual assets within and across teams? For example, if someone in QA has reproduced a bug discovered during testing, they can share the exact VM configuration with a developer, speeding up the bug resolution process. Commander deploys, captures and shares any system configuration, enabling teams to prototype new applications rapidly; test software releases on a broader range of system configurations; and capture, reproduce and resolve defects more easily.
End User Self-Service
Commander enables personalized self-service for Lab and DevOps users through easily customizable service catalogs and an on-demand user portal. Commander self-service empowers teams to enable provisioning, performance troubleshooting, console access, and more, all to get the most out of your private and public infrastructure.
VM Power Scheduling
These days, running infrastructure in the public cloud can be costly. Commander helps reduce your public cloud spending by automating power schedules for Dev and QA workloads.
Fenced Network Deployments
If you’re looking to provide your teams with the ability to make existing copies of multi-tier production applications, fenced network deployments allow you to do just that. Deploy virtual machine configuration clones simultaneously, and preserve the original system settings without causing network conflict. The network fencing technology of Commander lets multiple users deploy copies of the same library configuration simultaneously, without having to change machine characteristics such as IP addresses, MAC addresses, or security IDs – and yet still have full network access, helping your teams to fully automate their complex application provisioning needs.
