Abiquo Advances Cloud Management With Cisco

News: Abiquo Advances Cloud Management With Cisco

Abiquo has introduced the latest version of its flagship Enterprise Cloud Management solution- Abiquo 1.8.  The Enterprise Cloud Management software provider notes that its newest release improves its capability to aid enterprises coordinate virtual and physical infrastructure management.

Abiquo has added Cisco Unified Computing System as a device category in the physical inventory for hosts, and is supporting the Cisco Nexus 1000v switch to this end.  Abiquo 1.8 also features completely configurable role-based access control, LDAP-based user authentication, as well as a vendor neutral, automatic VM restart capability.

All these features, notes the company, allows businesses deploying multi-hypervisor datacenters to have a cost-effective, consistent and predictable high availability mechanism.

With version 1.8, Abiquo has strengthened its role-based access control as the release now has the ability to define an unlimited number of individual user roles, and to assign any combination of privileges, selected from a comprehensive range, to each. Abiquo 1.8 also delivers integration with any LDAP directory, such as Windows Active Directory, enterprises can manage Abiquo users entirely through any LDAP directory, including Active Directory.

At Abiquo, we’ve built our business by offering a solution built to fit the enterprise customer, not forcing the customer to fit our solution,” said Abiquo CEO Pete Malcolm.

We started by being the first company to offer support for all major hypervisors, and Abiquo 1.8 shows that we continue to innovate based on that premise. Enterprises need to be able to discover and manage physical infrastructure directly, not in an abstract way through a hypervisor, which is what our competitors espouse. Abiquo 1.8 advances this vision and delivers enterprise-class cloud management for even more control of critical cloud computing resources.”
