Hybrid Cloud Support

Orchestrate your IT offerings with the first model-driven, virtually assembled set of IT management solutions.

Process-driven integration of private and public clouds

The orchestrated IT offerings powered by Solutions Business Manager (SBM) provide the first model-driven, visually assembled set of IT management solutions in the market—and they were designed from the ground up to operate in public, private, and hybrid clouds.

SBM's multi-tenanted design ensures that core common services are shared across tenants, but each customer cloud deployment is isolated to a specific namespace, partitioning business processes and workflows, application data, dynamic forms, role-based privileges, and other core components.

Solutions Business Manager’s innovative “Process-to-Process Gateway” (P2P-G) enables seamless process-driven integration between private and public clouds. P2P-G offers two core capabilities: process federation and hybrid connectivity

Process federation

Process federation allows for the visual assembly of an orchestrated solution. It brings together disconnected processes, people, and systems. These orchestrated processes can then be grouped into functional units that are transparently deployed to public, private, or hybrid environments based on business efficiency, proximity, and security requirements.

Hybrid connectivity

Hybrid connectivity provides a secure SOA-based gateway for data interchange and process invocations across hybrid clouds without opening holes in the firewall. This technology significantly reduces chattiness between orchestrated processes deployed to hybrid clouds by delegating execution to resident process agents. Built-in federated authentication capabilities ensure single sign-on across public and private clouds without compromising firewall security rules.

The Micro Focus hybrid cloud offering allows organizations to deploy orchestrated solutions that retain sensitive data behind their firewall while taking advantage of the cost and flexibility benefits from deploying to the cloud.
