ROCKVILLE, M.D., Jan. 10 – CloudBolt Software, Inc. today announced the release of CloudBolt Command and Control (C2) version 3.5, a Cloud Management Platform (CMP) that has been integrated with VMware’s Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (NVP). This unique innovation and integration fundamentally changes the way networks are delivered to end users, making it possible to bypass the limits and restrictions of traditional, physical network configurations to stand up software defined networks on-demand.
“Network virtualization transforms the operational model of networking and cloud,” said Hatem Naguib, vice president, Cloud Networking and Security, VMware. “Together with CloudBolt, VMware network virtualization enables some of the most demanding cloud environments in the federal government to transform their physical networks and compute assets into pools of resources that are consumed and repurposed, on demand. CloudBolt’s cloud management platform takes full advantage of our network virtualization APIs to programmatically create complex, secure networks, entirely in software, and completely independent of the underlying network hardware.”
“This is a really exciting innovation for our customers. CloudBolt C2's unique integration with VMware network virtualization helps accelerates time to market for customers seeking to implement Software Defined Networking [SDN].," said John Menkart, CEO of CloudBolt Software. "Enterprise IT groups seeking the flexibility of SDN can leverage CloudBolt C2 to deliver private and hybrid cloud computing with unparalleled capabilities, and flexibility that is unmatched by any other Cloud Management Platform technologies. CloudBolt is leading the market and this latest release provides advanced networking capabilities that helps our customers charge ahead in evolving their IT organizations to be more agile, all while still making use of their existing IT investments."
CloudBolt C2 is available in two editions. The Virtualization Edition (VE) offers virtualization hypervisor and public cloud management. C2 VE is available as a free download, and includes a free license for use in environments with fewer than 100 virtual machines.
The CloudBolt C2 Enterprise Edition (EE) is a customized installation that offers more extensive capabilities that include integration with VMware network virtualization, data center automation tools such as HPSA/Opsware, private cloud frameworks such as OpenStack, and software license management capabilities.
About CloudBolt Software
CloudBolt Software transforms enterprise IT by providing Command and Control of IT resource technology that provides the consolidated operational intelligence needed to make strategic IT decisions. Launched in September 2012, the CloudBolt Command and Control (C2) cloud management platform rapidly deploys an on-premise cloud that enables hybrid cloud capabilities, provides IT resource management across multiple platforms and cloud frameworks, manages software licenses, and effectively delivers both Infrastructure and Platform as a Service (IaaS/PaaS). The ultimate benefit of CloudBolt C2 is the ability to leverage a new business model for effectively metering, provisioning and managing IT using products from multiple vendors in multi-stack environments without regard for the underlying infrastructure.
