Morpheus Data Optimizes Multi-Cloud Deployments and Unifies Ops Teams

Grazed from Morpheus Data

Today, Morpheus Data announced a major software release which brings predictive analytics to cloud management and enables end-to-end app lifecycle management in multi-cloud hybrid IT environments.

Research indicates that total enterprise spending on public cloud services is expected to continue to grow at double digits over the coming years. Much of this growth comes from application teams seeking to mirror best-in-class DevOps organizations where time to deploy is measured in minutes. At the same time, enterprise IT teams are signaling adoption of multi-cloud strategies rather than standardizing on a single provider. Unfortunately, fragmented cloud management has done little to speed deployment and rouge development has led to expensive cloud sprawl.

To address these gaps, Morpheus Data has updated its Unified Ops Orchestration platform with machine learning to lower cloud costs and new 3rd party integrations to speed application deployments. Unlike tools which only address part of the issue, only Morpheus provides a systematic solution to optimize resources, enable governance, accelerate workflows, and modernize applications. The solution was architected to be 100% infrastructure agnostic across bare metal, VM, and containerized deployments spanning on-premises, hosted, and public clouds.

Aerohive First to Answer Customers' Age-Old Question: How Am I Doing Compared to Others?

Grazed from Aerohive Networks

Aerohive Networks, a Cloud Networking Leader, today announced Cloud-based Comparative Analytics for enterprise access networks. As the capability is built out, customers will be able anonymously and dynamically to compare infrastructure and client metrics to similar-sized deployments and/or industries to help them proactively determine if and where to focus corrective or optimization efforts.

Quantifying and qualifying the operational effectiveness of the access point of an enterprise network has always been problematic because of variable usage and demand by users, compounded by the remoteness from IT resources. Using the power of the Cloud, Aerohive's new, totally anonymous Comparative Analytics capability will allow IT professionals to accurately compare key infrastructure and client metrics, at first dynamically and within a few months over time. Finally, Aerohive's Comparative Analytics capability will answer the age-old customer question of how to compare operating effectiveness to others of similar size and similar industries, as well as whether the metrics are getting better or worse over time.
