Cloud Management Innovator CloudBolt Software Accelerates Hybrid Cloud Time-to-Value with Comprehensive Platform Release

CloudBolt Software, the industry's leading cloud management platform for the enterprise, today announced the general availability of its CloudBolt 9.0 platform. CloudBolt 9.0 (Cumulus) enables enterprises to achieve unparalleled time-to-value for their hybrid cloud management strategies.

The 9.0 release builds upon CloudBolt's platform capabilities by simplifying multi-cloud management with a single pane of glass, accelerating workload delivery through self-service IT, and enforcing governance through centralized automation and orchestration as enterprises continue their hybrid cloud journeys.

"We've dubbed CloudBolt 9.0 ‘Cumulus,' which means ‘multi.' This captures the spirit of how our customers use CloudBolt today for multi-cloud services from the data center to AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform," said Brian Kelly, CEO of CloudBolt. "As enterprises continue to invest in cloud, containers, and infrastructure-as-code, the need for enterprise IT to deliver workloads to the business--quickly, cost-effectively, and securely--has never been greater. With enhancements to Kubernetes support and out-of-the-box integrations with Terraform, Splunk, and ServiceNow, CloudBolt 9.0 meets this bold enterprise vision while delivering on our strength of unparalleled time-to-value for customers."

The release of CloudBolt 9.0/Cumulus comes at a time when shadow IT is a costly driver of business expenditures: Gartner estimates that 30 to 40 percent of shadow IT is spent in large enterprises, and that 33% of security attacks will be on shadow IT resources by 2020. In regard to other expenditures, ParkMyCloud estimates that 44% of compute spend is on non-production resources that are accidentally left running.

CloudBolt 9.0 features the following new benefits to mitigate costs and accelerate the time-to-value for enterprise hybrid cloud management:

  • Accelerate your hybrid cloud journey
    CloudBolt 9.0 comes with expanded support for Kubernetes, enabling IT to more quickly and easily embrace containers and microservices architectures.

  • Enforce governance through centralized orchestration
    As enterprises embrace infrastructure-as-code (IaC) for provisioning and orchestration, CloudBolt serves as the key orchestrator to ensure centralized and compliant access to scripts and configurations. In 9.0, CloudBolt has extended its support for IaC with out-of-the-box integration with Terraform.

  • Accelerate workload delivery through self-service IT
    In Cumulus, CloudBolt continues to make it easier for developers to get the resources they need with new out-of-the-box integrations to Infoblox, phpIPAM, and ServiceNow. Through the new ServiceNow integration, IT can now deliver resources in minutes by enabling one-click approval of workload provisioning workflows.

  • Manage cloud spend and security with built-in guardrails
    9.0 further expands on CloudBolt's rich cost management capabilities to include Google Cloud Platform, enabling IT with deeper visibility into billing and cost-savings reporting. Further, 9.0 comes with out-of-box integration to Splunk, enabling IT to send logs to security information and event monitoring (SIEM) solutions for proactive detection of abnormal activity.

  • Simplify multi-cloud management with a single pane of glass
    Enhancements to CloudBolt's single-pane-of-glass view enable greater IT efficiency for day-2 operations. New integrations include monitoring with Datadog and SolarWinds, and lift-and-shift migration with CloudEndure.
