Configuration and application management for the cloud
Cloud computing is turning IT administration on its head. Even while you're maintaining and managing legacy infrastructure, cloud-based applications require a new way of managing application infrastructure.
By using public cloud infrastructure, resources are outside of your immediate control, but you're still responsible for your applications and data. With private clouds, you control the physical infrastructure, but there's a new level of abstraction around how those resources are shared between applications. Old ways of monitoring resource usage and managing applications aren't as effective.
ElasticBox simplifies the configuration, deployment and ongoing management of cloud applications. It gives you a single point of control for applications across different cloud platforms, so you can see all of your cloud instances from one place.
Using ElasticBox, you can delegate operational responsibilities to others while retaining visibility over applications and infrastructure. And you can move applications between cloud platforms for better elasticity and agility.
Use ElasticBox to:
- Share cloud accounts and resources while keeping track of who has access to which cloud resources.
- Configure and manage platforms: Simplify configuration and deployment of applications in cloud platforms.
- Avoid vendor lock-in: Understand the differences between cloud platforms, and simplify the process of moving applications between them.
- Work with heterogeneous environments: Encapsulate knowledge about different application components for easier ongoing administration and maintenance.
- Understand your the infrastructure: See all of your cloud-based instances, and the different components that make up each application, from one place.
- Scale up or down: Get true elasticity by quickly adding or removing capacity based on application needs.
- Control costs: Put cost controls on cloud resource allocation.
- Ensure business continuity: Move applications to another cloud quickly in case of an outage.
