Intelligent Placement with vCommander 7

With policy-driven Intelligent Placement and a multi-cloud catalog, vCommander can automatically place new workloads in optimal locations. Learn how today.


icon-multicloud-mgtWith vCommander 7, Intelligent Placement ensures that application workloads are automatically deployed to optimal locations, based on criteria you define.

vCommander 7 introduces several Intelligent Placement features: the multi-cloud service catalog, placement priorities, placement attributes and per-destination quota. Together, these features mean a smaller and easier to administer service catalog, with more flexible automated provisioning.


Multi-Cloud Catalog

The multi-cloud catalog allows you to create a single service that can be deployed on multiple private, public or hybrid clouds. You can leverage configuration management tools such as Chef, Puppet, and Ansible to deploy the same application across data centers and clouds. You can also use native infrastructure-as-code blueprints such as AWS Cloud Formation and Azure ARM Templates, allowing you to build applications leveraging the latest services from your public cloud provider.

Predictive Deployment for New Service Requests

With Intelligent PlacementvCommander predicts and selects the best deployment destination for a new service request. vCommander first filters out all destinations with insufficient resources. Then each available destination is rated based on the following criteria: Cost, Quota, and Placement Attributes. As the cloud administrator, you can customize the priority of these criteria, and you can also decide whether your end users can factor into the placement decision.

vCommander will ensure your placement governance is adhered to, in situations such as:

  • Deploying a service to public or private cloud, or to a data center or geographic region for which it is best suited.
  • The needs of Development versus Production application workloads.
  • Application performance needs, such as enhanced compute resources and IOPS.
  • Service needs, such as the requirement for a DR enabled location.
  • Cloud arbitrage needs, such as the ability to temporarily cloud burst to a new cloud destination when your primary cloud is over capacity or cost.
