In 2015, SovLabs, now part of CloudBolt Software, began introducing a suite of extensibility plug-ins developed to accelerate the time to value for users of VMware’s vRealize Suite. As the years went on, we began to notice a trend: our customers didn’t just want to improve functionality within their enterprise automation platform, they wanted to bring in more best-of-breed tools.
It didn’t take us long to realize that integrating these emerging technologies with their existing vRealize Automation suite was no easy task. Custom scripts and integrations created blueprint sprawl and exponential complexity. In response, SovLabs began releasing codeless integration solutions to bring best-of-suite and best-of-breed closer together, and manage them through single policies.
Today, we are delighted to announce the next generation of codeless integration and extensibility solutions with the introduction of the OneFuse Platform. We believe that customers should have choice when selecting the platforms and tools they need to streamline IT productivity. However, we also understand that without oversight, too many tools can create operational chaos and expand organizational risk. OneFuse aims to remove the barriers to integrate IT by creating policy-driven services extended across clouds, technologies, and teams.
OneFuse Helps Systems Work Better Together
Providing the ability for systems to work together shouldn’t be hard. It shouldn’t require hundreds of thousands of dollars in professional services or require endless code maintenance from administrators – which is why OneFuse is a game changer for hybrid cloud. We built the platform on three foundational pillars of value: provisioning governance, reducing technical debt, and improving collaboration across IT silos.
At its core, OneFuse is all about transparency and performance through the use of policies. Instead of using scripts and one-off integrations to achieve desired outcomes between platforms and tools, IT can configure integrations and automations using OneFuse policies and template engine.
The outcome creates safer and more streamlined provisioning by allowing technologies throughout the IT ecosystem to call pre-defined policies that are pre-configured to expose the right parameters, to the right teams, based on their choice of toolsets.
What Sets OneFuse Apart
- OneFuse Integration Platform – A single UI allows you to create policies to govern automation outcomes. From one centralized place, administrators can easily see what resources were provisioned, where the request was made, what policy was used, and the job outcome.
- Create once, use anywhere – Create your policy once and extend it to your tools of choice. With this first release of OneFuse, we support vRealize Automation 7.x and 8.x, Terraform, and we have an API that can be leveraged for other use cases. Imagine creating your naming constructs once, and OneFuse will enforce that naming policy on any tool or platform, complete with validations and automatic sequencing to prevent conflicts. No scripts, no code, no tech debt and no headaches.
- Easy collaboration across teams – Don’t allow manual handoffs and wait time impact your ability to deliver. Simply add your endpoint to a policy and you’re automated. No code. No need to access sensitive systems. No need for your users to have advanced knowledge of the underlying systems.
