DynamicOps Supports Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
DynamicOps has announced new support for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
The Operations Virtualization platform provider has made significant enhancements to the DynamicOps Cloud Automation Center and also expanded support for the physical and virtual resources comprising a cloud infrastructure –
including Cisco UCS, Dell and HP Servers, Citrix XenDesktop 5 and VMware vSphere 5.
The company notes that the expanded support and capabilities in DynamicOps Cloud Automation Center are available immediately.
This enhancement has enabled customers to leverage their DynamicOps infrastructure as a public cloud gateway that securely deploys virtual machines in Amazon EC2 via the DynamicOps self-service portal, based on the customer’s own unique governance model.
In addition to embracing the power and flexibility of public cloud, customers can now deliver unified capabilities through a common DynamicOps-based interface.
DynamicOps also allows organizations to support physical resources through the same interface as their virtual infrastructure. Thanks to the DynamicOps Physical Resource Manager module, IT has the ability to automate the deployment of hypervisors and add new physical servers to the hypervisor host clusters.
Moreover, DynamicOps enables integrated and automated end-to-end control of the virtual desktop lifecycle and makes it easy to transform VDI into virtual desktop cloud.
“Cloud computing solutions cannot deliver the dramatic agility and cost savings that enterprises need unless they make it easy to integrate their preferred services and systems while ensuring governance,” said Les Yetton, CMO of DynamicOps. “With our platform expansion announcement, we’re giving customers even more flexibility to leverage best-of-breed technologies and seamlessly integrate with public cloud services — while maintaining strict control over the entire environment.”
Other benefits include allowing customers to leverage their existing System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) environment with virtual and physical machines managed through a DynamicOps-based self-service cloud.
Customers can choose to use PXE to deploy operating systems or applications and can combine it with other tools such as SCCM.
