New Cloud Development Kit Builds on DynamicOps Operations Virtualization Platform
DynamicOps, provider of the first Operations Virtualization platform enabling unified cloud automation and management , today announced the DynamicOps Cloud Development Kit, the industry’s only solution for rapidly deploying and extending a user-centric private cloud. The Cloud Development Kit, which leverages the DynamicOps platform and runs on the foundation of Microsoft technologies, makes it easy for enterprise IT to integrate, adapt, and extend their existing systems, enabling the fastest time-to-cloud value.

“To reap the greatest benefit from a private cloud, enterprises must be able to build a solution in which their policies, processes and resources work in unison. Typically, this is a tremendously time-consuming and expensive endeavor—but DynamicOps has made it simple and cost-effective,” said Rich Krueger, CEO of DynamicOps. “With our Operations Virtualization platform, the cloud becomes a service where all of these elements are interconnected and abstracted from the entities below them. And now, with the new Cloud Development Kit, IT organizations will be able to speed the creation and extension of user-centric private clouds, using our platform to deliver even more value to their business faster.”

The Cloud Development Kit enables enterprises to quickly and easily:

  • Create a unique cloud system in days using intuitive tools that employees understand today
  • Adapt to any third-party environment including proprietary systems
  • Modify existing modules with unique processes relevant to the enterprise’s specific business
  • Develop custom modules to address company-specific needs
  • Accelerate private cloud and VDI deployments

“DynamicOps has built a strong private cloud solution based on the foundation of Microsoft technologies,” said Christian von Burkleo, director, Business Strategy at Microsoft Corp. “By utilizing the flexibility and scalability of Windows Server 2008, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, Windows Workflow Foundation and the .NET Framework combined with user-centric cloud capabilities, DynamicOps has helped accelerate the ability to address enterprise cloud computing needs for some of the largest companies in the Fortune 100.”

"We used the DynamicOps platform to rapidly create a customized Dow Jones private cloud that integrated with our existing systems, increased our return on assets, and enabled us to speed delivery of IT resources so that we could be very responsive to business needs," explained Dean Del Vecchio, CIO of Dow Jones. "We look forward to accelerating extension of our cloud services through the use of DynamicOps Cloud Development Kit."

“Enterprise IT organizations have never been under more pressure to quickly and radically transform their operations. To fully benefit from virtualization, while at the same time increasing IT responsiveness and flexibility, smart enterprises are embracing efficient, self-service IT environments that capitalize on the power of cloud computing,” said Dave Bartoletti, Senior Analyst at Taneja Group. “DynamicOps’ Cloud Development Kit is the type of solution these smart companies need: one that delivers real business benefits through self-service and IT automation, embraces the cloud, and enhances existing IT investments and processes.”
