New Cloudify Features Expand App Management Options for OpenStack Users via Murano Plugin and Kubernetes Integration

Share Article

Extending the broadest set of supported technologies in the orchestration market, Cloudify also enhances support for workloads running on VMware.

Cloudify’s new Visual Composer simplifies the process of designing complex application topologies with a straightforward visual interface.

Arthur Berezin of GigaSpaces will be signing copies of his new book at the GigaSpaces booth (T48) at the OpenStack Summit this week in Tokyo.

The roadmap for Cloudify orchestration software is taking users on a trip to some of the cloud’s most popular destinations, including OpenStack Liberty, Kubernetes container cluster management and out-of-the-box VMware integration.

Cloudify is the only pure-play open source orchestration software, built on the TOSCA standard. GigaSpaces, the corporate sponsor of Cloudify, is a provider of in-memory computing and cloud orchestration technologies, serving customers worldwide. Features now available and on the immediate Cloudify roadmap include:

  • Kubernetes Integration — Cloudify now supports the popular Kubernetes container cluster management project, on OpenStack and other clouds. Users can also deploy Kubernetes as a target environment for application components.
  • Murano Integration — A Cloudify plugin is now available in the Murano application catalog. This integration means that users can now deploy applications from the Murano catalog with Cloudify as the underlying orchestration engine.
  • Single pane of glass — Via the Murano plugin, OpenStack users can deploy, manage and monitor applications in diverse cloud environments with Cloudify, all accessible and managed via a single-pane-of-glass interface, simplifying orchestration and management for Cloudify users.
  • Support for OpenStack Liberty — Cloudify 3.3 will support the current version of OpenStack, called Liberty, launched October 15.
  • Enhanced support for mixed workloads — Cloudify now has out-of-the-box integration with VMware vSphere and vCloud, OpenStack and Docker. Users can now run applications that consist of both containerized and VM-based workloads and deployed across multiple clouds. The new Visual Composer simplifies the design of these complex application topologies.
