I am thrilled to announce the general availability of CloudBolt 9.3 that will help enterprises consume IT services seamlessly. We define our roadmap and strategy working closely with our customers and understanding what is important to them. It is our customer-first attitude that helps distinguish us from our competitors. I want to thank our customers for all their input towards 9.3. Let’s jump right into what’s new in the CloudBolt platform.
Improved Navigation For A Better User Experience
We have enhanced CloudBolt’s user navigation to make the platform more intuitive, help onboard new users quickly, and to drive business value faster. All updates are made at the top-level navigation for better interaction and learn quickly about various sections of the platform.
Derive More Value From Your Microsoft Azure Environment
Microsoft’s Shared Image Gallery (SIG), helps customers easily manage, share, and distribute VM images within and across multiple Azure regions. Now users can consume SIGs directly through their CloudBolt platform to drive business efficiencies and focus more on strategic activities. They can manage these images globally by grouping and versioning them while sharing them across subscriptions and tenants using Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). Additionally, accelerated networking and management of enterprise-level Azure environments are easy to consume from the CloudBolt platform. Thus, making CloudBolt your single portal for all things Azure.
Stay Secure With Simplified SSO/ SAML2 Setup
With this new release, CloudBolt has simplified Single Sign-On (SSO) configuration for customers. This configuration provides a guided experience for easier setup. Also, CloudBolt integrates with any SAML2 compliant identity provider to support SSO. This release provides additional support for Okta and more choices to follow in subsequent releases.
Manage Veeam, SolarWinds IPAM, and Cisco UCS Environments From One Single Platform
Cloudbolt’s Veeam UI extension enables users to view a server’s backups stored in Veeam and restore them to AWS or Azure. It allows users to access functionality provided by Veeam without having to learn how to use Veeam itself. This gives users complete assurance and peace of mind.
CloudBolt now integrates with SolarWinds IPAM. This ensures that when a user provisions a server using CloudBolt, an IP address gets assigned to that server directly. Thus, eliminating any manual intervention needed and making the process more efficient. Additionally, deleting the server ensures the IP address is released back to be reused later.
With the new CloudBolt blueprint self-service provisioning of Cisco UCS service profiles are just a few clicks away. Thus, CloudBolt becomes even more extensible and helps you save time.
CloudBolt has invested in making the customer’s hybrid cloud journey simpler, cost-effective, and better governed. Learn more about these CloudBolt features here.
