Deploy VMs faster than ever

Configuring and deploying VMs can take much longer than your users would like, and often requires a significant level of technical expertise, costing your company both time and money, as do many other repetitive tasks your IT organization has to deal with on a daily basis. Wouldn’t it be great to organize all those tasks in an optimized way to speed delivery of vital resources, save employee time and improve usability?

Abiquo helps companies save valuable time and reduce management complexity by automating these tasks.

Abiquo 5.1 enables users to deploy VMs even more quickly and easily, giving your company a competitive advantage by speeding up your IT processes, so helping allocate employee time more efficiently and effectively to dedicate it to what your users really need.

You can now start the deployment process from anywhere in the Abiquo platform, while improved user workflow makes the process more intuitive with useful default options, with easy selection templates and the ability to optionally edit VM configuration before deployment if required.

Self-service VM snapshots, the safe way

Cloud platform users often look for a way to ensure that data is safe while performing maintenance or other one-off tasks, and look to IT teams to take care of this with solutions such as backups on demand and VM snapshots. Each of these comes with a downside though; Backup on demand requires restore on demand to be really effective, while snapshots can create performance issues and can easily get out of control. This is particularly true in a multi-user and, even more, a multi-tenant cloud environment.

Abiquo v5.1 supplements the existing scheduled and on-demand backup and restore functionality with new self-service VMware snapshots. Users can take snapshots and roll them back on demand, while configurable scheduled auto-consolidation ensures that workloads do not run from snapshots indefinitely.

The platform helps in a visual way too, displaying the snapshots with the regular backups, since users really don’t differentiate between the two.

Use VM Hardware profiles across multiple cloud providers more easily

Some public cloud providers insist on using hardware profiles – predefined combinations of VM resources – as the basis for a virtual machine’s configuration. However, each provider has their own terminology, often creating long lists or complex familial relationships which are hard for users to comprehend.

Private cloud platforms based on VMware, KVM and others do not natively offer hardware profiles, but rather present users with a free choice of CPU and RAM. Abiquo has long offered the option to use hardware profiles in private cloud to mirror your public cloud providers. Now, Abiquo 5.1introduces hardware profile families and types to improve the organization of HPs and helps customers with usage hints to select the perfect HP. This feature also allows users to select a similar Hardware Profile between clouds, as in the App specs feature, facilitating easy deployment of a defined application blueprint on all your clouds. 

Now, the platform provides a helpful description of the family and the type of hardware profile so that it is even easier to choose the hardware profile when creating the VM.
