Orchestration, a market estimated to grow
to US$14 billion by 2021, is emerging as a preferred path to cloud
management for service providers and enterprises looking for
self-service application and network provisioning and optimal resource
utilization and control. The latest version of the open-source Cloudify
orchestration software makes big strides toward giving both major user
groups-service providers and enterprises-the features they need to
orchestrate the most demanding cloud applications and network services
without compromising on robust security.
Cloudify is an open-source
orchestration platform and a widely deployed, production-grade
implementation of the TOSCA
standard. It offers management and automation of both applications and
network services in heterogeneous environments, as well as distributed
management through clustered management. Cloudify delivers fine-grained
role management, with tenancy and access control built in to enable full
control. It includes self-service capabilities enabling historical
analysis of resource usage, providing deep and intelligent insights
about performance and cost.

4.2 Webinar for a look at the latest release ***
4.2 launches today at Kubecon/CloudNativeCon in Austin with features
to serve enterprises and service providers looking to make the
transition to virtualized and cloud-native
infrastructure. Organizations are now able to do so without
compromising on security and regulatory demands. The new version
delivers this with features such as:
The new version supports custom infrastructure for Kubernetes, offering
the ability to reimplement without rewriting multiple instances on the
same cluster. This makes interoperability possible with other stacks and
pre-existing stacks. Now everyone-and not just developers-can manage
complex Kubernetes clusters.
Some additional real-world examples of how the Cloudify Kubernetes
plugin is being deployed:
Enterprises and service providers are transitioning into cloud and
adopting common frameworks and practices to manage their cloud services.
Nati Shalom, co-founder and CTO of Cloudify observes, "There are still
many challenges to make those frameworks interoperable with existing
environments and allow better control and governance. Cloudify 4.2 comes
with Kubernetes providers that allow interoperability with multi-cloud
and multi-stack environments, new security features that allow better
control as to how the cloud infrastructure is used, and new
insights-as-a-service that adds utilization and cost insights. It also
improves network security by allowing applications to create their own
private network and firewall rules as part of the application lifecycle."
"Service providers who want to transition to NFV and fully virtualized
environments are seeing challenges with adopting modern cloud practices
while integrating existing network infrastructure and delivering
carrier-grade solutions. Cloudify's integration with pure TOSCA and
Kubernetes coupled with Tech Mahindra's end-to-end solutions, being
applied in the real-world at leading telcos such as Proximus, has built
a robust partnership with a unique capability to deliver a carrier-grade
solution today, while maintaining future compatibility to integrate with
industry standards such as ONAP tomorrow."
-Manish Singh (News - Alert), Network Services, Tech Mahindra
"The relationship between Aptira and Cloudify began focused on a
specific project to maximize the utilization and reduce costs of a large
carrier's MPLS network. The success of this project enabled Aptira to
expand upon this into additional projects including IT, involving the
new Cloudify capabilities for supporting Kubernetes and hardened
security on OpenStack and VMware. The new support being shipped will
enable additional adoption of the open orchestration concept, bridging
the networking world and IT through a common orchestration platform."
