Intigua 2.0 Automates Provisioning Of Critical Management Technologies Required For SLAs, Security and Compliance In Private Clouds

2013-08-14

NEWTON, Mass. ---- CIOs today are asking their IT teams to build private clouds that reflect the on-demand simplicity and agility that Amazon Web Services delivers in its public cloud.

Unlike with public clouds, however, production servers in private clouds must adhere to strict corporate policies for uptime, performance, security and compliance. This requires new servers to be rapidly configured with their entire management stack, including critical technologies such as server monitoring, configuration and compliance management, security logging and data backup. Currently, adding these technologies is accomplished via manual, non-standardized processes that add days or weeks before new servers are ready for production use.

Intigua 2.0, to be demonstrated at VMworld 2013, is the only automation platform to provide centralized, policy-based provisioning, configuration and ongoing management of the entire management stack. By replacing manual processes with centralized automation, Intigua enables enterprises to deliver production-ready VMs -- configured with all management technologies essential for SLAs, security and compliance -- in minutes, versus days or weeks, for the first time. This allows IT to better meet the dynamic needs of the business while reducing operational overhead and complexity.

“Enterprises want to move business-critical applications to the cloud, but they must also figure out how to easily monitor, backup, configure and secure those apps without slowing down the business or increasing costs,” said Bernd Harzog, Principal Analyst, The Virtualization Practice. “Intigua solves this very real problem in a unique and effective way, enabling agility by providing automated manageability.”

Intigua 2.0 provides a new API-driven abstraction layer that allows it to be driven by standard cloud management platforms such as VMware vCAC, OpenStack and ServiceMesh, enabling enterprises to dynamically orchestrate their management stacks -- just like servers, storage and networks -- for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).

Also new in 2.0 is automated control and visibility for the entire management stack, including configuring settings on both server end-points (such as communication settings) and back-end management servers (such as daily backup schedules). Intigua works with all existing management technologies – both agent-based and agentless – such as Splunk, Hyperic, Nagios, Puppet, IBM Tivoli, HP, BMC, CA, Microsoft, VMware, Symantec and EMC.

“Enterprises need centralized, policy-driven automation to address the massive scale and dynamic nature of the cloud,” said Shimon Hason, Intigua CEO. “By virtualizing the entire management stack and providing centralized management for it, Intigua enables enterprise IT to run at cloud-speed without sacrificing essential operational mandates to keep systems up and running and compliant at all times.”

Intigua is complementary to cloud management platforms such as vCAC that provision pre-configured images, and to scripting tools such as Puppet that provision operating systems and applications/middleware -- because it is the only off-the-shelf solution for automated provisioning and ongoing configuration of the management stack itself.

Integration with Enterprise Environments

Intigua 2.0 adds a number of new capabilities for integration with existing environments. It now supports:

Private, public and hybrid clouds.
Linux and Windows servers.
Communication either via the vSphere hypervisor or via standard TCP networks to server end-points.
Enterprise directories (LDAP/Active Directory) for authentication and role-based access control (RBAC).
