WE GET WHERE YOU’RE COMING FROM
When you’re facing a vast IT environment without full visibility into its contents, it can feel like you’re staring into a dark abyss of technology components. You need to establish an inventory of servers throughout your private data center and public clouds and find a way to keep them under control. There are products out there for cloud management, but most of them seem to be built for environments that are starting at square one.
Thankfully, there’s hope: a solution for eliminating the unknowns of your environment and gaining a holistic view of all IT assets, both old and new. CloudBolt solves inventory uncertainty, provides a consistent user interface for managing assets, and alleviates the woe that is spreadsheets.
HOW CLOUDBOLT MAKES IT HAPPEN
CloudBolt provides visibility into all technology components and allows you to take action against discovered resources, resulting in better performance, cost effectiveness, and the power to reallocate and optimize your environment. It synchronizes inventory directly from cloud providers by speaking the native language of each technology and adapting the process to be uniform across clouds. CloudBolt manages every asset it discovers within your environment, including networks, data stores, templates, clusters, and more.
CloudBolt features a pluggable architecture that enables communication with all technologies, supports a wide range of clouds, and comes with broad technical support.
Upon connecting to a public cloud or private virtualization infrastructure, CloudBolt synchronizes all discovered resources to its database. After a server has been imported and is under the management of CloudBolt, any modifications, whether made from within CloudBolt or outside of CloudBolt, will be tracked and reported.
No other product on the market delivers the time-to-value of CloudBolt in a brownfield environment where infrastructure is already deployed and operating. Connecting to external systems such as CM tools (Puppet, Chef, Ansible), IP address management tools, configuration management databases (CMDBs), and much more is available out-of-the-box and as downloadable plug-ins from the CloudBolt Forge on GitHub.
Upon installation, CloudBolt walks administrators through the process of setting up their first connection to a private virtualization system or public cloud. Once connected, CloudBolt synchronizes existing resources and brings them under immediate management. Self-service provisioning is also setup from the start, so getting started is usually completed in a matter of minutes.
