What is CloudShell?

Quali’s Cloud Sandbox Software allows you to create and publish sandboxes that are replicas of infrastructure and application configurations and use them for development, testing, demos, training and support. CloudShell works by letting you model, orchestrate, and deploy on-prem, cloud, and hybrid environments so that all teams in the DevOps lifecycle have consistent access to production ready environments.

MODEL
MODEL

Model complex infrastructure and application sandbox environments

ORCHESTRATE
ORCHESTRATE

Create powerful orchestration workflows that are aware of the entire sandbox model and triggered off specific sandbox events

DEPLOY
DEPLOY

Deploy full application stacks into sandboxes, publish sandbox blueprints to a shared self-service catalog, and integrate with DevOps tools

Shells and Plug-ins

Shells are the building blocks of sandboxes that model infrastructure and applications. Plug-ins make it easy to integrate CloudShell with your whole DevOps lifecycle.

FEATURES

Model Infrastructure and Applications

Model Infrastructure and Applications

CloudShell enables you to model infrastructure and applications that replicate complex production environments. In a single Sandbox, users can combine physical infrastructure and network connectivity, virtual infrastructure and virtual network connectivity, applications and cloud interfaces.

Sandbox Orchestration

Sandbox Orchestration

Create powerful orchestration workflows inside of sandboxes. Snapshot, save, restore, configure, and monitor sandbox resources with ease. Developers can use Quali’s native Python libraries to create orchestration while non-programmers can use Quali’s visual drag-and-drop authoring tool.

Self-Service Deployment

Self-Service Deployment

Easily deploy full application stacks into sandboxes, publish sandbox blueprints to a shared self-service catalog for on-demand access by all your teams, and allow DevOps tools to consume sandboxes for full DevOps automation.

Smart Multi-Tenancy

Smart Multi-Tenancy

CloudShell’s unique smart multi-tenancy ensures that many users can run in isolated Sandboxes while sharing infrastructure and networks without conflict. Infrastructure can be locked or shared as needed for optimal use of resources.

Lab Automation

Lab Automation

CloudShell includes lab automation and management features like inventory, reservations, scheduling, role-based access control, conflict resolution, and business intelligence. Easily automate multiple labs and share them among hundreds or thousands of engineers.

DevOps Integration

DevOps Integration

CloudShell enables easy integration with continuous process and DevOps tools through a full set of APIs and a plug-in architecture.

Benefits

Accelerate Time to Market
Accelerate Time to Market

Cut the time required for development, testing, QA, demos, training and support, and get to market faster. Cut environment configuration and deployment times from weeks to minutes.

Drive your organization toward full DevOps
Drive your organization toward full DevOps

Give every developer and tester a personal replica of the production environment for use throughout the full DevOps cycle so that the product you build is “production ready” the first time.

Reduce Risk / Improve Product Quality
Reduce Risk / Improve Product Quality

Your ability to accurately replicate a complex hybrid environment in the lab very early in the development process means fewer bugs found in test, QA, production or at the customer level.

Reduce Cost
Reduce Cost

Reduce lab infrastructure and operating costs by 50% or more by increasing lab utilization, eliminating manual configuration and optimizing the sharing of expensive lab resources. CloudShell automates your lab and delivers all resources through Sandboxes for complete control of the lab.

Measurable ROI
