Red Hat announced new capabilities and features for Red Hat OpenShift, the company's enterprise Kubernetes platform.
CloudBolt Software announced the general availability of OneFuse 1.1, a codeless integration platform for automating, extending and integrating hybrid cloud technologies.
This release provides powerful new capabilities to help IT to simplify integration complexity across their cloud management, infrastructure-as-code, and automation platforms including VMware vRealize Automation and HashiCorp Terraform.
By enabling IT to easily create deep, feature-rich integrations—without the high cost and complexity of custom code—enterprises can accelerate their infrastructure automation initiatives while improving governance and compliance.
“As enterprises invest in digital transformation, accelerating their automation initiatives for hybrid cloud is hampered by the sheer complexity of integrations across IT and DevOps tools,” said Jeff Kukowski, CEO of CloudBolt Software. “Integrations should be accelerators, not stumbling blocks. Enterprises continue to find themselves tripping over custom code when integrating their scripts and platforms like VMware vRealize Automation and Terraform with underlying IT, networking and security infrastructure. OneFuse 1.1 dramatically accelerates time-to-value by reducing this custom code and improving integration governance, all through a codeless, policy-based approach.”
OneFuse 1.1 is a software-defined alternative to siloed custom integration services. As an enterprise integration platform purpose-built for hybrid cloud, OneFuse 1.1 has three distinct advantages over alternative integration methods. The platform enables:
- Codeless integrations – OneFuse 1.1 has a middleware abstraction layer with production-ready integration logic that allows IT to codelessly integrate their provisioning, orchestration or automation tools with target infrastructure endpoints (e.g., IPAM, DNS, etc.). OneFuse also extends integration capabilities for existing platforms VMware vRealize Automation and Terraform, so customers are able to get more value from those investments. By eliminating the need for custom integrations, OneFuse provides an alternative to expensive professional services with value being realized in days instead of months or years.
- Centralized governance and compliance – From OneFuse’s centralized console, enterprises can easily define, apply and enforce infrastructure deployment and usage policies without special tooling or skill sets. This enables IT to enforce monitoring, compliance, security, auditing and logging requirements for multiple vendor services and components. OneFuse allows them to see who, what, when and how resources and services are being consumed and deployed, and always have a full audit trail of all requests, job outcomes, users and policies.
- Unified automation – Many enterprise IT organizations are siloed and fragmented, which impacts the ability to achieve well-governed advanced automation. OneFuse removes those barriers by allowing different personas (e.g., infrastructure engineers, automation architects, site reliability engineers, etc.) to collaborate on integration and automation policies without the need to provide privileged access to IT systems. IT can unify provisioning and orchestration of cloud resources—quickly, cost-effectively and securely—while providing “anywhere, anytime” access to those services for whomever needs them.
OneFuse 1.1 is now generally available with naming services, IP address management (IPAM), domain name system (DNS), and Microsoft Active Directory support for platforms including vRealize Automation and HashiCorp Terraform.
