CloudBolt Announces Availability of Their Cloud Management Platform in Microsoft Azure Marketplace

To meet growing demand for Microsoft Azure on its proven cloud delivery platform, CloudBolt Software is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Customers can quickly deploy CloudBolt with Microsoft Azure from the Azure Marketplace portal to manage servers, applications, and environments across a wide range of virtualization and cloud providers.

As enterprise use of cloud computing grows, there is increasing demand for vendor-agnostic multi-cloud management. CloudBolt delivers IT automation and end-user self-service through a simply powerful console. Administrators can control their virtualization environments, private clouds, and public clouds all from a single interface, and they can present services and applications to end users through an intuitive user portal.

"Deploying the CloudBolt management platform in Azure makes a lot of sense for our enterprise customers,” said Jon Mittelhauser, CloudBolt CEO. “As they move more workloads to the cloud, they recognize the importance of matching workloads and execution venues. CloudBolt gives them the ability to do just that, and Azure provides tremendous flexibility in terms of locations and consumption."

Until recently, CloudBolt had been delivered only as an on-premises virtual appliance. By making the solution available within Azure, CloudBolt is providing customers with added deployment and operational flexibility. They can deploy the CloudBolt console from the Azure Marketplace and be up and running within minutes. Better still, they can start with a free 25 VM version and expand as their needs grow.

“Microsoft’s enterprise customers are increasingly looking to shift workloads between their own datacenters and the Azure cloud. The CloudBolt platform makes this easy for both brownfield and greenfield environments,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Corp. “We’re pleased to welcome CloudBolt to the Azure Marketplace.”

Azure enables building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed and Microsoft-partner hosted datacenters. It provides both PaaS and IaaS services and supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

CloudBolt drives business agility by automating the request, provisioning, and ongoing management of systems and applications. Its powerful cloud management platform integrates on-premises virtualization and private cloud environments with public clouds, automation tools, and domain-specific technologies. CloudBolt’s intuitive self-service IT portal and unified manager enable users to provision and manage the resources they need. Enterprise IT organizations maintain control through configuration standards, usage quotas, and cost transparency.
