SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Ensim Corporation, a leading provider of automation and orchestration solutions for users and organizations with business applications, services and infrastructure, today announced the availability of Ensim IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) Manager 3.0 for VMware. In concert with the Ensim Automation Suite, IaaS Manager provides the complete end-to-end managed cloud solution that service providers need to support evolving customer demands. This includes marketplace, service catalog, ordering, provisioning, orchestration, administration, and billing functionality. IaaS Manager supports multiple hypervisors such as VMware vSphere®, Xen, and KVM, managed by VMware vCloud Director® and VMware vCloud Automation Center, as well as Microsoft hypervisors and even OpenStack -- all from a single platform.
IaaS Manager enables the rapid and effective creation of offers from service providers' own public, private or hybrid cloud-based IaaS solutions via a robust service catalog. It enables usage tracking with billing and chargeback, and provides simplified, consistent self-service operations administration for the end-user, IT admins, agents, and resellers via an easy-to-use role-based portal. New features in 3.0 include 3-step VM creation, network automation, SSO to VM consoles, nested snap shots, and more.
"Ensim's IaaS Manager allows service providers and enterprises to leverage the combination of agility and control that our leading VMware solutions offer, and to incorporate the front and back-end functionalities necessary to commercialize the delivery of IT services via the cloud," said Sanjay Katyal, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware.
"Service providers and even many enterprises need a way to commercialize cloud-based IT offers," said Dave Wippich, CEO, Ensim. "Ensim IaaS Manager is able to work with VMware vCloud Director® and VMware vCloud Automation Center to cost-effectively provide BSS/OSS functionality with multi-tenant and dedicated deployment architectures for public, private, or hybrid clouds."
With IaaS Manager, Ensim supports virtual machine management, including the ordering of both individual virtual machines (VPS), as well as the purchase, deployment and management of virtual data centers (VDC). Ensim allows for rapid development cycles and puts the virtual data center owner in full control of managing the environment without having to make an additional purchase each time a new virtual machine is deployed. Alternatively, the VPS model is often a more cost-effective option for smaller businesses and users who enjoy system administrator-level access to one or more virtual machines with their own operating system and bundled software, or can install any software that runs on that OS.
