Overview

Deploying new cloud environments can be a time-consuming process. Administrators spend hours or days specifying the precise VM attributes, installing software, rebooting the machines, configuring the software and running scripts. In addition, this process is rife with opportunities for human error. What if a sub-optimal best practice configuration isn’t followed? How much time will be spent troubleshooting to find the root cause of the issue?

Orchestration tools like Cloud Blueprints are designed to solve these issues. Each “template” offers a deployable configuration that can bring a new environment online in a couple of clicks. The end result? Custom apps and pre-packaged software are always deployed to their ideal settings, eliminating the misconfiguration and mismanagement.

The Cloud Blueprint Designer takes you step-by-step through the process.

Common Uses

Deploy Environments with Consistent Best Practices

Common cloud environments (i.e. messaging and collaboration, or an ISV’s specific application) should be deployed consistently with best practices in mind. Yes, documentation and other materials can help, but these mechanisms don’t enforce adoption. With cloud orchestration tools like Cloud Blueprints, IT managers can easily design, deploy and adhere to best practices over and over again.

Standardize Deployments

IT organizations strive to ensure that all production servers meet a certain standard. Easier said than done, since these standards encompass hardware specs, software versions, license maintenance, patch levels and security configurations. Cloud Blueprints, built with these standards in mind, solves this issue for IT.
