Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 Speeds Time to Effective Cloud Deployment for Businesses

Adaptive Computing, the largest provider of private cloud management and High-Performance Computing (HPC) workload management software, today announced the release of Moab Cloud Suite 7.2. Now Moab Cloud Suite provides improved time to cloud deployment offering out-of-the-box integration with existing infrastructure, minimizing system upgrades by leveraging existing investments. It also enables IT departments to more easily meet the needs of different organizational groups by streamlining tasks with a new dashboard portal and automating budget allocation.

Out-of-the-Box Infrastructure Integration

Moab facilitates the deployment of private clouds by optimizing existing infrastructure components to make the most of current investments. It integrates easily with virtualization, management and other cloud platforms, such as the new VMware Center connector (Moab Cloud Suite vCenter Connector), HP Cloud Services Automation Connector (HP CSA) and more (to be released soon).

Moab Cloud Suite vCenter Connector enables the metrics of virtualized resources to be utilized to drive Moab automation and optimization policies for the cloud environment. This extends the value of the customer’s existing VMware investments. Vendor lock-in is also avoided as other hypervisor and management tool metrics can also be leveraged for cloud management and policies through extensible Moab Web Services.

Moab Cloud Suite HP CSA Connector allows Moab’s patented intelligence engine policies to optimize service placement and performance while maximizing utilization as part of the HP CSA cloud solution. This connector is currently available through HP and HP partners.

Multi-Group Management

Moab’s ability to meet the specific needs within different organizational groups is important in a cloud infrastructure. Admins are able to create different groups and sub-groups, and define permissions governing access and management. The groups can be synchronized with existing LDAP groups for simplified and efficient management. Users can be grouped by teams or roles and responsibilities, allowing each user the access they need without sacrificing security.

Streamlined Dashboard Portal

The streamlined dashboard portal enables users and admins to be more productive by grouping the needed data views and management actions together for common tasks so they can be accomplished quicker and easier. Key subjects are listed with every relevant action in easy-to-navigate panes, and dashboard filters allowing multiple filtering options to speed common cloud requests and status tasks. In addition, dashboards now show more actionable data, summarized in a comprehensible at-a-glance format with improved data list views and one-click drill downs on almost any data item. These new dashboard features give admins aggregate and summarized data to provide a better overall picture of their current cloud conditions.

Periodic Budget Reset Capability

Because budgets need to be reset at regular intervals, such as monthly and quarterly, this update to Moab enables automatic resetting of budgets. This provides greater transparency into usage and availability, improving budget-planning decisions without the need to wait for reports. It also improves showback and chargeback reporting and allows budgets to be set across multiple groups or accounts as necessary.

Supporting Quotes

“Gartner recommends customers unify IT operations management architecture, inclusive of services management, across both legacy data center and cloud environments to provide the key benefits of improved visibility, service analytics, capacity management, process integration and staff and asset efficiencies,” said Donna Scott, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Research. “Customers should select a cloud management platform partially based on the degree of heterogeneity they require to unify existing management software with their cloud management.”

“As more businesses introduce private clouds, it’s important to keep costs at a minimum by making the most of the current infrastructure. We designed Moab Cloud Suite 7.2 to aid them in making the smoothest, most efficient transition possible,” noted Robert Clyde, CEO of Adaptive Computing. “Updated accounting features and improved integration with third-party technology will make the process even more beneficial for organizations.”
