Your data center is a critical part of your business strategy. The faster it produces results, the more competitive your business can be in a world that values speed. To reach the speed you need, your data center must be agile – it must be automated. Data Center Automation plays a key part in your strategy to achieve this competitive edge.
Imagine if you had the software and a ready-to-go programmable infrastructure that helps you easily create new services. What if you could launch them in a fraction of the time and cost it takes now? Imagine too if your customers had a simple way to order your services online and get them in minutes.
Automation is more than just being able to spin up a VM quickly. It’s about using APIs to stitch together workloads across storage, network and compute, ITSM, CMDB, helpdesk, monitoring systems and asset management for true end-to-end service delivery.
A service-oriented orchestrator is a tool allowing developers and IT admins to unite high-level IT services with automation workflows. For example, it can:
- Connect to trouble-ticket solutions
- Include network optimisation processes
- Create OpenStack constructs
- Attach Chef and Puppet processes within automation workflows
An orchestration engine is designed to standardise, unify and automate IT services through best practices. Most importantly, there’s no need to rip out your existing investments in automation, as the entire business orchestration layer can be abstracted from the infrastructure to enable seamless process automation across all of your environments.
