What is Enterprise Cloud Management?
Enterprise Cloud Management provides the capabilities required to offer self-service, on-demand deployment and management of applications and services across a federation of private, public and hybrid clouds. To deliver these capabilities, a true enterprise platform is necessary. Below are the high level capabilities required of a true enterprise grade cloud management platform.
Automated Deployment and Management of Enterprise Applications
Enterprise Cloud Management automates the deployment and management (including scaling up/down/out) of enterprise applications across private, public and hybrid cloud environments. Complex applications can be modeled in an infrastructure- and cloud-independent manner for complete portability. Enterprise Cloud Management handles the complexities of individual cloud provider APIs transparently, allowing vendor contestability.
Policy-based Enforcement of Governance, Compliance and Security
Enterprise Cloud Management enforces flexible, policy-driven governance, compliance and security across the full lifecycle of cloud applications and cloud environments.
Integrated Application Release Automation
Enterprise Cloud Management provides integrated application release automation across the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). It allows application development teams to automate their custom release processes and integrate existing development tool-chains. Development and test environments can be spun up and down at will to allow a pay-as-you-go cost model.
Enterprise Cloud Management provides a self-service portal to empower business users and developers with on-demand, self-service access to enterprise cloud applications, application platforms, and cloud services.
Why Do I Need It?
Simply put, without Enterprise Cloud Management you can’t provide “everything as a service IT” to your business users and developers without the risk of governance, compliance and security issues that can be costly to your enterprise financially and damaging to its reputation.
The ServiceMesh Agility Platform is the only enterprise grade cloud management platform.
