Virtualisation and cloud infrastructure firm VMware has introduced VMware vCloud Integration Manager, a new offering designed to help service providers automate the delivery and operations of VMware vCloud Director -based clouds.
With VMware vCloud Integration Manager, service providers can create and deploy cloud service offerings, operate at maximum efficiency and scale to meet customer demand in a reliable, repeatable and cost-effective manner.
vCloud Integration Manager will be tightly integrated with VMware vCloud Director, VMware vSphere, VMware vShield Edge and VMware vCenter Chargeback Manager to automate and accelerate the provisioning and delivery of infrastructure and associated services.
In addition, the new release will provide a REST-based API to integrate with a service provider’s back office systems and a Web-based administration portal.
It will include Web-based portals to streamline and automate service plan, customer lifecycle and reseller management.
VMware Cloud Services senior director Mathew Lodge said service providers were looking to get high-margin cloud services to market as quickly as possible.
"With VMware vCloud Integration Manager, providers of VMware vCloud services will have the tools they need to automatically provision services, enable reseller partners and speed customer on-boarding," said Lodge.
