Enterprise cloud management platform provider, CloudBolt Software, has announced the general availability of CloudBolt 9.3. New features in this release would include improved user navigation, expanded support for Microsoft Azure, and deep integrations with Veeam, SolarWinds, and Cisco UCS.
The CloudBolt platform supports management of 20+ private and public cloud environments through a single pane of glass, accelerates workload delivery with self-service provisioning, and enables consistent, standardized governance through centralized automation and orchestration.
The new features and capabilities in CloudBolt’s 9.3 release build on this to address a wide range of cloud management challenges. These new capabilities would include:
Improved user experience
9.3’s enhanced user navigation would make the platform more intuitive, providing more information to onboard new users quickly and accelerating time to value.
Microsoft Azure management made easy
With support of Shared Image Gallery (SIG) in 9.3, customers can manage their Azure environments efficiently with less manual effort. These images can also be managed globally by grouping and versioning them while sharing across subscriptions and tenants using Azure RBAC.
More security with simplified SSO/SAML2 setup
CloudBolt 9.3 would simplify SSO configurations, helping customers secure their IT environment faster. Also, CloudBolt integrates with any SAML2 compliant identity provider to support SSO. And, 9.3 provides support for Okta and has more choices to follow in subsequent releases.
Backup and recovery with Veeam
A new Veeam UI extension for CloudBolt 9.3 enables users to view a server’s backups stored in Veeam and restore them to AWS or Azure. This means users can now access Veeam functionality without having to learn how to use Veeam itself.
Central support for Cisco UCS
CloudBolt 9.3 features a UCS blueprint that allows self-service provisioning of service profiles, enabling organizations using Cisco UCS to achieve the benefits of a self-service model.
Integration with SolarWinds IPAM
CloudBolt 9.3 now integrates with SolarWinds IP address management (IPAM). This ensures that when a user provisions a server with CloudBolt, an IP address provided directly by SolarWinds gets assigned to the server, increasing efficiency and eliminating the need for any manual intervention.
“We continue to listen to our customers and enhance the cloud management platform of their choice with updates to address their pain points,” said Rick Kilcoyne, chief product officer of CloudBolt. “The significant increase in 9.3’s self-service capabilities, accelerated networking and provisioning, new integrations with multiple in-demand platforms, and elimination of many manual processes empower CloudBolt users to better allocate resources to drive more business value. 9.3 continues CloudBolt’s tradition of always innovating and adapting with the needs of our users top of mind.”
