QualiSystems Launches Automation Platform that Bridges the Gap Between Legacy Infrastructure and the Cloud
With CloudShell, IT departments can achieve self-service of real-world hybrid infrastructure-including legacy elements, traditional networks, SDNs and private and public cloud
SANTA CLARA, California, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
QualiSystems [http://www.qualisystems.com ] announces the launch of its CloudShell
automation platform. CloudShell offers IT infrastructure teams an efficient platform for
providing self-service automation of heterogeneous infrastructure, including legacy
systems, dedicated data center infrastructure, traditional and software-defined networks,
and private and public clouds.
CloudShell enables infrastructure and network teams to build a sustainable process for
architecting and publishing diverse infrastructure resources packaged with automated
provisioning as holistic environments. All application delivery stakeholders, including
developers, security engineers, compliance personnel and pre-production testers can access
the exact same environment to drive a high quality, agile development to deployment
“Enterprise-class organizations must deal with the reality of integrating applications
across many infrastructure stacks, including legacy systems,” says Alex Henthorn-Iwane,
vice-president of marketing for QualiSystems. “Traditional automation tools are either too
fragmented or too code-intensive to enable infrastructure and network teams to deliver
end-to-end infrastructure to application delivery stakeholders. CloudShell draws on
QualiSystems’ long history in automating multi-generational, diverse infrastructure
environments to deliver highly sustainable automation for agile IT.”
CloudShell delivers a comprehensive set of capabilities including an infrastructure
resource manager, an object library based approach to automation that enforces best
practices, and GUI-based environment design and workflow authoring tools, integrated
reporting and business intelligence tools, plus a powerful web-based self-service portal.
CloudShell easily integrates multiple automation languages or scripts and provides easy to
use tools to capture and create reusable automation objects for legacy infrastructure
elements that don’t have APIs.
CloudShell enables infrastructure teams to make legacy environments agile for
developers and testers, and to provide a path for publishing incremental infrastructure
changes that provide a path to cloud evolution. CloudShell also offers networking
organizations a self-service platform for building a sustainable dev/test practice for the
adoption of software defined networks (SDNs) and the support of SDN application life
cycles. With CloudShell, IT departments can also automate the provisioning of
infrastructure resources from bare metal to fully operational state and to orchestrate
ongoing automated tasks in a highly sustainable and non-programmer friendly manner.
CloudShell will be available to customers beginning in early December 2013.
QualiSystems offers automation and orchestration solutions that deliver agility,
productivity and cost savings to test labs, data centers, and software defined networks.
TestShell and CloudShell automation platforms automate resource management, provisioning
and testing of heterogeneous environments from bare metal to operations, development to
deployment, and legacy to cloud and SDN. QualiSystems solutions are deployed by hundreds
of service providers, enterprises, government agencies, and technology manufacturers
