VaraLogix Announces Expanded Support for Application Deployment to Private Clouds, Public Clouds and Virtual Environments
AUSTIN, Texas, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — VaraLogix® , the leading provider of automated application deployment, application management and configuration management – in one solution, today announced expanded support for application deployment to private clouds, public clouds and virtual environments. This latest release of their flagship product, VaraLogix Q, includes new, out-of-the-box functionality for dynamic resource creation and release with building blocks supporting Amazon, VMware®, Microsoft® cloud and virtual environments. Out-of-the-box building blocks for deploying to servers in pre-existing resource pools through direct access to the pool manager or load balancer including hypervisor support for Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, as well as load balancer support for F5® and Citrix® NetScaler. With this latest release, VaraLogix is the only vendor to provide support for rolling deployments. This allows groups of servers to be removed from the cluster during deployment and then be re-added upon successful completion – automatically followed by the next arbitrary server group until all servers in the cluster have the appropriate application components deployed.
“Pushing deployments to production used to involve manually removing servers from the load balancer pool, updating application components, checking to make sure the new updates work, then adding servers back into the pool and reiterating this process through all the load balancer servers,” said Robin Fuller, VaraLogix Chief Technology Officer. “We give you intelligence out of the box for fully automated, rolling deployments. You can define any number of segments in a load balancer and push the deployment through those segments.”
With VaraLogix Q, IT Operations, Development, DevOps, QA, and Production teams can seamlessly automate physical, virtual and cloud environments as part of a standardized, repeatable and audit-ready way to execute complex application deployment. Q provides integrated, dependency-aware configuration management across the application ecosystem. Typical configuration management tools only address middleware configurations. VaraLogix Q automatically discovers, manages and corrects middleware configurations and the configurations of databases, operating systems, and environments within the deployment process – even if they reside on different servers. VaraLogix Q integrates with platforms and tools including IIS, JBoss, WebSphere, WebLogic, Tomcat, Apache, Amazon, VMware, Citrix NetScaler, F5, TFS, SharePoint, BizTalk, ClearCase, Build Forge, Perforce, Subversion,Oracle, DB2, MySql, MS SQL and more.
VaraLogix is led by the same experienced team who founded Build Forge, acquired by IBM in 2006. This team has spent decades addressing automation, configuration, build, and release management issues at global 2000 companies and government agencies such as Apple, State Farm, AllState, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle and many others. VaraLogix is privately-held with headquarters in Austin, Texas.
