Quali Releases CloudShell 9.0, Provides Advanced Save-And-Restore Capabilities
Newly Available Solution Gives Organizations Flexible Cloud Provider Templates. Demonstrates Solutions at VMworld 2018 at Las Vegas
SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 28, 2018 -- Quali, the leader in cloud sandbox software for DevOps automation, today announced the general availability of CloudShell 9.0. The solution brings advanced automation and orchestration capabilities to deliver environments as-a-service.
CloudShell offers full-stack, on-demand hybrid IT environments for application development and testing, including integration with physical infrastructures. New capabilities include an ability to simplify saving and restoring of sandbox environments as well as flexible cloud provider templates.
The Save-and-restore capability allows more efficient utilization and re-usability of physical and virtual infrastructure that improves productivity and maximizes resource utilization efficiency. The saving capability preserves the original environment content, configuration and network state. The “saved sandbox” can then be restored by the user at a later time. This prevents overconsumption of IT infrastructure (physical or virtual), allowing users to create a graceful backup of their work environment. The solution is initially available for virtualized environments and will be generally available on August 30.
“IT environments are continuing to become more complex and enterprises continue to demand a more flexible, simpler and richer user-experience while aligning to efficient workflows, said Shashi Kiran, CMO at Quali. “The save-and-restore capability is a long-awaited capability on CloudShell. This, with the flexible cloud provider template opens up a world of multi-cloud possibilities for our customers.”
Recognizing an increasingly multi-cloud world, and the desire of large enterprises and service providers to support their own private or public clouds, Quali is introducing flexible cloud provider templates. CloudShell already has out of the box support for leading public and private clouds (Vcenter, OpenStack, AWS, Azure etc.). In addition, new flex cloud templates help organizations build their own cloud support in CloudShell and deploy complex applications in the cloud of their choice, offering environments-as-a-service to their developers and testers.
Quali will be featuring these solutions at VMworld 2018 (booth #1660) in Las Vegas as well as providing demos to interested parties remotely. Quali has won the “Best of VMworld” finalist award in 2016 and 2017 in the category of agility and automation.
Quali is the leading provider of enterprise sandbox software for cloud and DevOps automation delivering environments-as-a-service for a variety of digitization use-cases. With its flagship CloudShell platform and blueprint-based approach, Quali gives Dev/Test teams, sales and support professionals, as well as architects, access to on-demand, self-service replicas of complex production environments that work on private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.
