ManageIQ solutions enable enterprises to deploy and manage private clouds with the necessary policy-based control, tracking and management necessary to mitigate the risks associated with shared infrastructures while achieving the agility and cost savings that elastic, service-based IT cloud computing offers. Key elements of private clouds include providing service owners with self-service, automated provisioning and autonomous management of their applications while ensuring security, availability and performance meet service level agreements and enterprise standards.
Our solutions enable IT organizations to safely and securely delegate self-service provisioning, administration and operations to users while ensuring their purview is limited by role and service ownership. In addition to support for secure delegation, EVM ensures that IT organizations responsible for the private cloud infrastructure can enforce compliance with enterprise configuration and security standards. In spite of rapid workload provisioning, movement and decommissioning, network zone policies and compliance must be tightly controlled and enforced.
EVM can ensure that requests go through appropriate approval processes, are tracked and audited, and that resource allocation, availability and usage are managed in accordance with service level agreements. Cost transparency, chargeback and quota enforcement enable effective resource management, accurate planning and forecasting with cost allocation back to the responsible lines of business.
