2011-02-14 – Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 Delivers Unmatched Agility and Automation for Workload Driven Private Clouds

Moab Adaptive Computing Suite Offers Powerful Intelligent Resource Management to Pave the Way for Infrastructure and Platform-as-a-Service

Provo, Utah—February 14, 2011—Adaptive Computing, a leader in unified intelligent automation technology, today announced Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0, a significant upgrade to its data center and private cloud management solution. The new version addresses growing enterprise demand to quickly deploy infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) or software-as-a-service (SaaS) from a centralized and intelligent data center infrastructure. Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 now delivers increased agility and automation to decrease the time to value for new cloud services, reduce IT cost and complexity and optimize overall cloud resource utilization.

The Moab Adaptive Computing Suite is powered by Moab, the company’s core unified intelligent automation technology. New capabilities in Moab enhance its ability to automate the complex decision-making process of identifying and allocating available resources based on business policies, compliance, cost and performance goals. By ensuring that applications and infrastructure are automatically deployed properly the first time, service failures are avoided, resource usage is optimized and costs are reduced.

“Cloud solutions ultimately need to evolve in complexity from rapid provisioning to an automated, self-optimizing environment,” said Michael Jackson, president and COO of Adaptive Computing. “With Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0, enterprises can create an optimized cloud environment that has the agility to respond to business requests via sophisticated automation. Innovative partners such as HP recognize this need for intelligent resource management and rely on Moab technology to help their customers further extend the value and return on investment of their cloud infrastructures.”

Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 enables organizations to evolve self-service cloud projects into rich, self-optimizing or intelligent workload-driven clouds. Its policy-based cloud intelligence engine works in tandem with existing data center management and resource investments to create an agile cloud environment that responds faster to business requests and automates across IT processes.

Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0

Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 offers crucial agility and automation capabilities that decrease the time to value for new cloud services that align with business priorities and optimize cloud resource utilization. Product enhancements include:

  • Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 is tuned to automatically understand and manage a mix of application workloads. In addition, the solution automatically initiates live migration of VM workloads to meet service needs and maximize utilization.
  • It can now rapidly automate resource allocation, provisioning and de-provisioning hardware resources via policies to reduce IT cost and management complexity.
  • Moab Adaptive Computing Suite 6.0 provides billing or “showback” of resource usage costs and ensures that services are delivered within standards and compliance requirements.
  • It aggregates data for rich context to automate initial resource allocation decisions and policy-based actions through integration with other resource managers, data repositories, and identity management systems.

International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts that the worldwide cloud systems management software market will experience strong growth over the next several years, reaching $2.5 billion by 2015. According to research findings, IT customers can expect to manage a hybrid mix of public cloud, private cloud, and non-cloud IT resources for some time. They will need highly automated and integrated system management software tools to optimize IT processes and application performance across these dynamic hybrid cloud environments.
