CloudBolt Software announced its “Winter” release which features significant enhancements to help enterprises accelerate their hybrid cloud and IT automation journeys.
This new release features powerful capabilities across the company’s award-winning cloud management (CloudBolt, Kumolus) and codeless integration (OneFuse) solutions.
Key capabilities in “Winter” include: new cost optimization advancements for VMware vCenter and Azure; new C-level dashboards and reports for improved visibility into cloud cost, security, and compliance; the ability to accelerate Terraform adoption through intelligent self-service IT; and democratizing the power of scripts and Red Hat Ansible Tower to solve complex IT integration problems. Finally, the Winter release continues to help CloudBolt’s VMware vRealize Automation 7 (vRA 7) customers ease their transition to vRA 8.
“As enterprises go down this path, they will invariably face more challenges, whether that’s complex integrations, upgrading from vRA7 to vRA8, the lack of visibility into cloud resource usage, or making DevOps tools like Terraform and Kubernetes work better for their teams. The Winter release features new capabilities that meet these issues head on while embracing the tools, technologies, and clouds that organizations have today and tomorrow.” said Jeff Kukowski, CEO of CloudBolt Software.
Key capabilities in CloudBolt’s “Winter” release include:
- OneFuse Ansible Tower module – This new capability enables administrators to create their own Ansible-powered services that different automation teams (e.g., owners of VMware vRealize, Terraform, ServiceNow, and more) can easily consume via API. This dramatically reduces the need for automation tool owners to be experts in Ansible Tower, while ensuring visibility and clear audit trails when using Ansible integrations across the organization.
- Cloud management solution enhancements (CloudBolt, Kumolus) – New Kumolus capabilities include the ability to rightsize idle resources for VMware vCenter, persona-specific reports and dashboards (e.g., CIO, CFO, CISO, etc.), expanded cost optimization for Azure, and Slack integration to improve collaboration across ITOps and FinOps teams. In addition, CloudBolt continues to set the DevOps pace. In the latest release of the CloudBolt CMP, richer Terraform integration now allows end users to more easily execute Terraform plans through self-service IT, while giving IT deeper visibility around infrastructure-as-code deployments.
The Winter release includes CloudBolt 9.4.4, OneFuse 1.2, and updates to the Kumolus SaaS-based cost, security, and compliance platform. Winter is now generally available.
