Cloud Manager® fully automates complex provisioning workflows—from requests and approvals to creating and deploying new business services.
The self-service portal allows business teams to easily request resources while maintaining alignment with IT policy and security privileges. By exposing the real price of server workloads, resources, and service requests, the portal encourages business users to select and pay for only what they really need.
IT administrators can create and upload predefined workload templates for all business services. The self-service portal displays available workload templates based on user and group profiles, so when business users "shop" for resources, they see only what's accessible to them. This minimizes manual effort and ensures that services requests always align with IT policy.
Administrators can create multiple tiers of service levels, price them appropriately, and publish them in the catalog. Users then choose the service level that best suits their needs and budget.
The multi-tenant architecture of Cloud Manager lets you use a single cloud environment to support multiple customers, organizations, and business units—with full and easy-to-manage segregation that ensures security, privacy, and compliance.
Cloud Manager respects and enforces your organization's internal approval process, as well as best practices like ITIL. Security profiles can be configured at the user, group, server workload, and business service levels, ensuring consistent application of security policies and rights management.
Virtualization makes it easier, faster, and cheaper to provision new servers. The unfortunate result? Virtual server sprawl. Cloud Manager reduces waste by reintroducing transparency to the provisioning process.
The capacity dashboard in Cloud Manager gives you an at-a-glance view of resource utilization and over-allocation, so you can know precisely when and where to add resources.
With its massive scalability, Cloud Manager is the perfect solution for data centers of any size. Whether your business is just ramping up or well-established, you can rest assured your solution will grow with you.
Reduce manual effort by automatically creating and deploying server workloads. IT administrators can produce a catalog of predefined workload templates, and business teams "shop" the user-friendly catalog. Cloud Manager even determines the optimal location in which to deploy new server workloads.
Micro Focus Cloud Manager integrates with NetIQ® Sentinel® (for event correlation) and NetIQ Operations Center (for visibility into business efficiency). Or you can use the REST API and call-out mechanism to build deep integration with your own existing systems.
Version 2.5 supports installation of the Orchestration and Application Server components on SLES 11 SP 4, adds support for new VMware technologies, and allows you to specify connection timeout values.
