Expanded capabilities form a framework for unifying cloud strategies and accelerating digital transformation
NORTH BETHESDA, MD, April 28, 2022 — CloudBolt Software, the leader in automating, optimizing, and governing hybrid cloud, multi-tool environments, today announced advanced capabilities designed to overcome critical roadblocks many of the world’s largest organizations are experiencing. CloudBolt has unified solutions for hybrid cloud management, cost management, and automation integration, while adding powerful new capabilities to form an advanced framework for success.
“Every single enterprise we talk to struggles with islands of automation. 79% of large companies say their cloud efforts are hitting a wall using their existing platforms and tools,” said Jeff Kukowski, CEO of CloudBolt. “There are too many teams using too many different tools across ungoverned cloud resources with no way to see, understand, and manage it all. And until now, there hasn’t been a viable solution for unifying everything under a ‘manager of managers’.”
Featuring eight specific modules above and beyond traditional cloud management platform capabilities, the framework allows companies to choose specific CloudBolt solutions while also integrating existing solutions and preferences. Some of the most essential new modules include:
- Role-Based Cloud Visibility and Reporting: Aggregating and understanding public cloud spend and usage (especially multi-cloud) is a frustrating and highly manual process. CloudBolt provides push-button visibility and alerting so companies can see and know what they are spending, while also receiving alerts when particular activities occur. Furthermore, with one-click reporting by role, users, administrators, and executives have immediate access to the exact information they need to make better cloud decisions.
- Automation Exchange (Content Library): A personal GitHub for cloud automation. Automation Exchange is a repository for a curated content library of reusable automation and integration elements, and blueprints to encourage re-use and prevent the need to re-invent.
- Active Cloud Governance: 78% of large organizations in a recent CII research study indicated that their current cloud approaches have created new security vulnerabilities, putting them at further risk. Active Cloud Governance creates implicit security by infusing governance non-disruptively into the front-end of workloads.
- Test and Assurance: CI/CD-specific: When DevOps needs to test software, the underlying infrastructure has to be right. Unfortunately, only 11% of companies are “highly confident” in the their CI/CD infrastructure – and any failure causes costly delays and lost productivity because the entire test has to be re-run. CloudBolt’s new testing and assurance capabilities helps ensure that things are working properly and available as needed – whether specifically for CI/CD or across broader ITOps infrastructure.
Other framework capabilities include an advanced integration engine, ecosystem auto-discoverability capabilities, and even a machine learning overlay to further automate cloud spend optimization, recommendations, and remediation.
“It’s been an exciting process to see our framework come together,” said Rick Kilcoyne, CloudBolt’s CTO. “Since CloudBolt’s early days, we knew the market would reach this point where cloud complexity demands something more to tame the chaos. With 88% of the market now saying they need some kind of overarching solution, we’re proud of the innovations and acquisitions we’ve made to meet our customers wherever they are in their cloud journey.”
