Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce
The platform is designed to allow IT admins to customize and automate infrastructure operational tasks.
Cloud automation and management software provider Cloupia announced Open Automation for Clouds, allowing its customers and partners to extend, add or enhance data center management and operations automation in addition to its Cloupia Unified Infrastructure Controller (CUIC) cloud and data center automation capabilities.
The company's Open Automation for Clouds capability provides customers with a way to automatically add multiple infrastructure and cloud vendors as an extension of their data centers and allows users to take control of systems and applications. The platform is designed to allow IT administrators to customize and automate infrastructure administrative and operational tasks while allowing IT teams to build and execute repeatable physical and virtual infrastructure provisioning workflows.
"Typical data centers are heterogeneous in nature, and automation technology cannot be limited to a small set of protocols and systems," said Raju Penmetsa, CTO at Cloupia. "Open Automation for Clouds provides technology and service delivery partners, as well as customer administrators, with access to reports, analytics, workflows, triggers, chargeback and data acquisition information to properly service business users and operators. These tools are vital in helping an organization properly implement a dynamic IT infrastructure to reduce costs, simplify administration and better align IT departments with their business needs."
Cloupia also helps small to medium-size businesses (SMBs) evolve from static data center or virtual environments to private and public cloud environments. Its flagship product, CUIC, provides infrastructure control, provisioning, management and monitoring across physical, virtual and cloud environments using a single pane of glass. The company is providing evaluation software, a software development kit, documentation and training for partners and customers adopting Open Automation for Clouds.
