Las Vegas (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
SaltStack, the full systems and configuration management stack for any cloud, today announced the introduction of enterprise DevOps toolchain support to IT service management (ITSM) and ServiceNow service automation. SaltStack will sponsor the ServiceNow Knowledge13 user conference which is recognized as the largest gathering of IT service automation professionals in the world. The conference will be held May 13-16 in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort and Casino.
SaltStack provides provisioning for any cloud in addition to configuration management for heterogeneous data center infrastructure. SaltStack is integrating with ServiceNow service catalog and orchestration to provide end-to-end enterprise IT infrastructure and public and private cloud automation.
Enterprise IT organizations use the ServiceNow service catalog and automation platform to orchestrate business service requests. With ServiceNow acting as the front end for service requests and work flow automation, SaltStack can be used to execute work in the modern data center. Private cloud provisioning, public cloud orchestration, easy and scalable configuration management, real-time server data monitoring and automation, and the work of DevOps teams generally can be more efficient through the combination of SaltStack and ServiceNow.
Marc Chenn, SaltStack CEO, said, “From our perspective, the business of the modern enterprise IT runs through ServiceNow for a substantial number of the world’s largest enterprise organizations. The more automation SaltStack can help promote within these organizations, the more efficient and responsive enterprise IT will be to the needs of a world full of cloud speed and scale.”
Marc and Thomas Hatch, SaltStack CTO, will be available at Knowledge13 for demos and briefings. Find them in booth 12 in the ExpoNow hall.
