Virtual machine management provides workflow-based tools for resource management, approval processes, maturity and an audit-proof documentation of Leverkusen, 03.07.2008 – the proliferation of virtualization technologies leads to significantly improve the productivity of developers, efficiency in test and acceptance environments and cost efficiency in the operation of the server. However the company a new challenge faced at the same time – the management and operation of multiple isolated units. This requirement can be comfortable with xTigo Automation Framework 2.0″and solution-based virtual machine management” cope. With this tool of the Software House can company offer an infrastructure service their users, which assigns virtual systems within a few minutes, and equips administrators with a workflow-based tool, resource management, xTigo approval processes, to enable transit times and a tamper-proof documentation. It can be self service Provisioning and automated lifecycle management of virtual infrastructures with the xTigo Web portal, the workflow engine, and modules for VMware virtual Center and Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager implement”, xTigo’s Managing Director Rainer describes loosely. xTigo Automation Framework 2.0 “in principle aims to bridge the gap between the IT processes and the manual implementation at the level of infrastructure development and manage workflows.
Existing system management, software or proprietary tools and scripts are integrated without modification as a module. The companies are capable of, across automated control software and system elements of the infrastructure. The base of the xTigo Automation Framework 2.0 “platform forms a central XML – database, in the information, tools, modules and workflows revisioned be filed. The xTigo modules are used for the control of the IT infrastructure and can be adapted as needed by the company. For the integration of the tools are no changes to the Infrastructure necessary. The xTigo Server manages remote mechanisms such as API interfaces and scripting mechanisms the software and systems.
To do this, only the management tools on the management server, as well as appropriate service accounts are required. The previous and the new States automatically in the database are logged with all revisions due to xTigo Automation”. This allows not only an audit-proof documentation of changes within the IT infrastructure. Thus the growing compliance requirements are mapped at the same time adequately”, explains how to loose.
