Cloupia Simplifies and Enhances Cloud Management with Introduction of Open Automation for Clouds

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 27 -- Cloupia, a leading provider of cloud automation and management software, today announced Open Automation for Clouds for its customers and partners, allowing them to extend, add or enhance data center management and operations automation in addition to its “out of the box”  Cloupia Unified Infrastructure Controller (CUIC) cloud and data center automation capabilities.

Cloupia helps organizations to smoothly evolve from static data center or virtual environments to private and public cloud environments and achieve the goals of elasticity, efficiency, cost savings and agility that businesses are expecting from IT today.  Its flagship product, CUIC, provides comprehensive infrastructure control, provisioning, management and monitoring across physical, virtual and cloud environments using a single pane of glass.

Cloupia's new Open Automation for Clouds capability provides customers with a way to automatically add multiple infrastructure and cloud vendors as an extension of their data centers and allows users to take control of systems and applications with a minimum of engineering effort and without vendor lock-in.  IT administrators can customize and automate many infrastructure administrative and operational tasks using the platform while allowing IT teams to build and execute repeatable physical and virtual infrastructure provisioning workflows without complex custom scripts and expensive system integration engagements.

"Typical data centers are heterogeneous in nature and no automation technology cannot be limited to a small set of protocols and systems," said Raju Penmetsa, CTO at Cloupia.  "Open Automation for Clouds provides technology and service delivery partners, as well as customer administrators, with access to reports, analytics, workflows, triggers, chargeback and data acquisition information to properly service business users and operators.  These tools are vital in helping an organization properly implement a dynamic IT infrastructure to reduce costs, simplify administration and better align IT departments with their business needs."

Cloupia is providing evaluation software, a software development kit, documentation and training for partners and customers adopting Open Automation for Clouds.  Open Automation for Clouds has limited availability.  Interested parties can become an Open Automation partner by contacting Cloupia at

Cloupia solutions enable IT organizations to provision infrastructure consistently and automatically from pools of shared resources using a self-service portal.  IT managers can rapidly provision resources ranging from a single virtual machine to complex multi-tier environments with physical and virtual servers and storage systems.  By enabling seamless integration and management across heterogeneous hypervisor technologies and cloud vendors, Cloupia helps organizations leverage their IT investments and purchasing power to their maximum advantage.

Cloupia further simplifies data center management and operations with the recently released CloudGenie, a tablet-based data center orchestration application to manage and provision physical and virtual infrastructure. Targeting Apple IOS devices (iPad) initially, this app demonstrates ease of deployment and management for workloads running on cloud infrastructure.  To learn more about data center orchestration solutions and CloudGenie, visit
