(PRWEB) August 22, 2013
CFEngine Inc., provider of the world’s leading open source configuration management software with more than 10 million servers under management, today announced that it is a sponsor at VMworld San Francisco 2013, the industry’s premier virtualization and cloud computing event.
“We are excited to be at VMworld, as it brings together companies and users who are building the IT infrastructure of the future, with a focus on speed, scale and security,” says Yoav Boaz, VP of Product Management at CFEngine. “At VMworld we will demonstrate how some of our largest customers are providing self-service for application provisioning and dynamically adjust application resources based on advanced analytics while continuously ensuring service quality for cloud operations.”
Application Service Assurance Based on Dynamic Thresholds and Advanced Analytics
Despite the undisputed benefits delivered by virtualization and migration to cloud-based architecture, they also add complexity to IT operations. With separate and disconnected management interfaces for applications and infrastructure, organizations find it hard to commit to service level agreements and adhere to security and compliance standards.
With CFEngine Enterprise, for the first time, IT organizations can build a simple solution with a single product to provision applications and dynamically scale their infrastructure based on performance analytics that are collected in near real-time.
“One scenario in which customers take advantage of our technology is by dynamically adding or reducing web and application servers based on the load the application is experiencing and based on number of users connecting to the system” adds Yoav. “These performance analytics can be static or can be calculated dynamically based on a SLA policy.”
CFEngine is fully distributed, with lightweight agents on all nodes of the IT infrastructure working independently. This architecture helps with resiliency, security, performance and scalability, since there is no single point of failure. It also enables built-in software load-balancing, failover and high-availability.
