CloudBolt Software has announced new features and capabilities on its powerful cloud management platform that enable enterprise IT to gain the greater flexibility, cost efficiency, and security that SDN, microservices, and a choice of more than a dozen leading cloud environments provide.
CloudBolt continues to lead the way in enabling IT to deliver service agility and flexibility while still maintaining control over their multi-cloud environments. The latest capabilities include support for VMware NSX and for Docker and Kubernetes. CloudBolt has also added support for three additional cloud platforms, IBM SoftLayer, HP Helion, and CenturyLink Cloud, bringing the total number of cloud platforms on CloudBolt to thirteen.
“As a leading provider of cloud management services, we are continually evaluating and integrating emerging technologies into our platform to meet the ever-changing needs of enterprise IT. In the past year, we have seen a marked increase in the number of enterprises that want to take advantage of the benefits of SDN and container technologies,” said Jon Mittelhauser, CEO, CloudBolt. “Our latest version of CloudBolt enables enterprise IT to more easily and cost effectively access and reap the benefits of these technologies, by providing a simple and powerful interface to deploy and manage them.”
CloudBolt Offers Support for Leading Container Technologies Including Docker and Kubernetes
Container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes provide easily configurable and transportable services. The CloudBolt cloud management platform now provides management of microservices, acting as a ‘manager of managers’ and allowing IT to configure containers within CloudBolt to facilitate deployment and management of container services.
CloudBolt Brings New Level of Flexibility and Deeper SDN Integration with Support for VMware NSX
Enterprises are increasingly looking to SDN and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) to simplify network configuration and management. CloudBolt has extended its support for VMware NSX, providing powerful diagramming features that show relationships to servers not available in other cloud management platforms. With CloudBolt support for SDN, network administrators can gain the advantages of SDN within the CloudBolt cloud management platform, allowing them to easily define networks as they deploy environments and then quickly remove them when they are no longer needed.
CloudBolt Enables IT to Choose the Right Cloud for the Job with Support for Three New Cloud Environments
With the addition of IBM SoftLayer, HP Helion, and CenturyLink Cloud to the CloudBolt platform, enterprise IT customers have a wider range of locations where they can configure and publish capacity through the CloudBolt Service Catalog, including new locations in Canada, India, Italy, and Mexico. This new version also expands CloudBolt’s existing support for standards-based cloud technologies including OpenStack and Cloud Foundry.

Currently deployed in a range of enterprise IT environments, including a large-scale and complex environment with more than 20,000 servers, CloudBolt offers a mature product architecture that is simple and extensible. Its framework supports DevOps and enables quick and easy integration with customer’s existing IT tools and management systems to create a scalable and secure platform for publishing cloud services.
