Evolven Software Inc., the pioneer of Granular Configuration Automation solutions, today announced a partnership with Eucalyptus Systems, creators of the leading open source private cloud platform, to enable enterprises to develop Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) private and hybrid clouds. The integration of the Evolven and Eucalyptus technologies enables IT departments to easily build infrastructure clouds and automate the monitoring for critical configuration changes in the cloud environment, maintaining high availability and performance.
The move to cloud has raised the pace of change for enterprise organizations by giving direct access to the application infrastructure to more people within the organization, speeding up the development process consequently increasing the chance of configuration errors. Eucalyptus provides a Private Cloud infrastructure with ease of transition and use that allows IT departments to easily set up their own private internal clouds, and move workloads among internal servers, or to and from Amazon Web Services (AWS). This freedom and ease of access is maintained by Evolven's unique capabilities to monitor for critical configuration changes or differences between environments that could impact environment stability, ensuring consistency and availability. The integration of both the Eucalyptus and Evolven technologies provides a combined solution for ensuring the smooth implementation of scalable IaaS-style private and hybrid clouds based on the Eucalyptus platform.
'The adoption of private and hybrid cloud technologies is growing rapidly as a means for enterprises to access the efficiencies of public clouds while maintaining the security advantages of on-premise data centers,' said Matt Reid, vice president of sales and marketing at Eucalyptus Systems. 'Through this partnership with Evolven Software, organizations can benefit from a pre-integrated cloud solution that makes it easy to provision, create, and manage private and hybrid clouds. Included in this solution will be the ability to analyze the criticality and impact of configuration changes as well as differences in and between environments, even at the most granular level.'
"Cloud computing is the next step in technology evolution that will drive enterprise developments worldwide,' says Sasha Gilenson, Evolven's CEO, 'Our partnership with Eucalyptus Systems will allow enterprises to maintain the freedom and ease of use of private cloud infrastructure. With Evolven integration into the Eucalyptus platform, we can make it easy to automate the management of configuration information, no matter how minute, identifying and remediating critical discrepancies in private cloud-based environments, preventing the risk of painful downtime."
