Below is a guest blog post from our partner, BMC.
Today BMC announced the release of BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management 4.0. This latest version of our Cloud Management platform delivers fast time to value and helps customers manage and govern the lifecycle of any cloud service across hybrid cloud environments.
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management now has an integration to the Microsoft Azure platform making it easy for BMC customers to automate provisioning of IT workloads to Microsoft Azure and securely manage these workloads across a hybrid environment.
Microsoft Azure has been recognized as the only public cloud vendor that is a leader for both IaaS and PaaS. With BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and Microsoft Azure solution, BMC customers have the management capabilities to further leverage Microsoft Azure for production-class workloads. These include capabilities to deliver:
• Broad-Based Automation to support provisioning of simple to complex, multi-tiered service offerings
• Process Governance providing control of the assets and changes to those assets that make up the application, whether those assets are in the public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud
• Compliance reporting and remediating to provide assurance that your data and your customers’ data are secured appropriately and you meet standards required by regulations
“Microsoft Azure continues to be one of the strongest platforms for enterprise workloads, and we’re excited to support it with our latest release of BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management,” said Alan Chhabra, Area Vice President, Worldwide Cloud and Automation Sales at BMC. “We look forward to collaborating with Microsoft to meet our customers’ growing cloud needs.”
“As enterprises embrace cloud computing, integration with their management software has become a critical requirement for successfully migrating applications and services to the cloud,” said Mike Schutz, General Manager of Cloud Platforms, Microsoft. “With this integration, BMC customers will be able to take advantage of the broad range of Microsoft Azure services as they accelerate their hybrid cloud strategy.”
The joint BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management and Microsoft Azure solution provides customers with a fast, comprehensive means to leverage the flexibility, speed, and economics of the cloud while making sure that IT workloads are managed to enterprise standards.
