Whitepaper: Application Infrastructure Automation: Tools for fast and cost-effective application deployment

by elastraDec 04, 2009

By automating IT service delivery many IT organizations are significantly reducing lead times needed to deliver business change. At the same time, application development has become more agile by using design patterns, service-oriented architectures, and new capabilities in development and testing tools.

Despite this progress, managing the application infrastructure�the varied layers between servers, operating systems, and applications�remains very complex. In most business-critical applications, intricate relationships exist between applications, servers, networks, and storage infrastructures. These interdependencies may be unique to individual data centers and must be independently managed as applications move from development, to test, then to production. This complexity impacts on-going operations and maintenance in terms of cost, time, and effort.

Automating application infrastructure delivery requires a new approach, including comprehensive, integrated tools and information models of application components and data center infrastructures.

An enterprise gains many benefits by automating the many layers between servers and actual applications. These benefits include reducing application delivery times and data center efficiencies that directly affect the bottom line.

Reduce Provisioning Errors & Improve Application Delivery Times: Using Elastra�s automation solutions eliminates errors and increases the speed at which applications can be deployed and maintained across data center

Increase Operational Compliance: Preserve existing role-based access policies by integrating them with new cloud environments and maintain compliance with IT governance policies by centrally controlling usage of resources

With the Elastra Cloud Server, you control who manages your infrastructure, what systems are being provisioned, how applications are designed and configured, and where and when they are deployed.


Whitepaper: Modeling the Virtual Data Center

by elastraNov 01, 2009

The transition to cloud computing is not simply about outsourcing or applying old technology to new IT processes, it signals a shift in how IT is designed and delivered. The ultimate value of cloud computing is realized by significantly reducing lead times needed to deliver critical business services. And, to realize this value, a new approach to modeling the new �virtual� data center should be considered.

The quickest path to model-driven automation within the virtual data center is the Elastra Cloud Server. ECS is an enterprise IT platform for data center modeling and software deployment automation across multiple virtual environments all from a single console.

Reduce Provisioning Errors & Improve Application Delivery Times: Using ECS eliminates errors and increases the speed at which applications can be deployed and maintained across data centers by creating reusable and portable application models

Increase Operational Compliance: Preserve existing role-based access policies by integrating them with new cloud environments and maintain compliance with IT governance policies by centrally controlling usage of resources

By modeling your data center with The Elastra Cloud Server and by using ECS to design and provision applications for enterprise business requirements you control who manages your infrastructure, what systems are being provisioned, how applications are designed and configured, and where and when they are deployed.
