DynamicOps Extends Cloud Capabilities
DynamicOps enables businesses to create sophisticated private and hybrid clouds on their own while avoiding vendor lock-in. Lock-in is a serious issue in today’s move to the cloud, and should give pause to any company planning on going with an outside vendor. However, by building their own cloud, businesses have to spend more resources and time than they would signing up with a cloud vendor. A privately built cloud may well offer much greater value but the more help the enterprise has for building, customizing and managing, the better return on the resource investment they'll get.
DynamicOps adds more value to the private cloud by integrating and extending cloud delivery workflows across existing resources, processes, and system management tools. The vendor has added new private/hybrid cloud extensibility features to DynamicOps Cloud Suite and Cloud Development Kit, which offers customizable self-service portals, better workflow editing tools, new developer tools and a larger activity library.
- Customizable self-service portal. IT can deliver unique portals and to different business units and individuals. IT may extend self-service capabilities to the units to maximize the portals for their own users.
- Enhanced workflow tools. An intuitive GUI-based tool lets administrators adapt cloud workflow scripts without using developers, which can result in significant time and cost savings.
- Expanded activity library. Users can employ more library activities to add and expand functionality, and to adopt applications like data center management software for the cloud. This enables companies to deliver customized IT services over the cloud, multiplying IT's value to users.
- Enhanced developer productivity. Simplifies new module development and streamlines migration to newer releases.
Layering on DynamicOps over existing IT infrastructure - both physical and virtual - basically turns it all into a multi-tenant cloud. DynamicOps certainly lends itself to public providers building out cloud offerings, but if you need to elevate your IT game into offering cloud services, the shortest path might very well be with DynamicOps.
