The Cloud Accelerator enhances the PMG Service Catalog Suite by delivering out-of-the-box functionality for the self-service provisioning of virtual infrastructure, such as servers, workstations, software and supporting components.
PMG provides a centralized, unified catalog of services across the enterprise through the intuitive, familiar interface of online commerce. Instinctively easy to use, the new Cloud Accelerator empowers data center administrators to quickly create new virtual service offerings and manage machine builds – all without having to rely on support from the service catalog administrator. This allows data center administrators to focus on their core competency – data center management – rather than managing the details of the service catalog. Additionally, end users are able to manage the details of their own machines, without having to contact the data center administrator.
The Cloud Accelerator's intuitive interface consists of machine build, machine management, user access to machines and a main console with dashboard reporting metrics. Data center administrators create templates of service offerings with defined components that include pricing optional approvals, with easily configured optional tiered levels within templates and flexible pricing. Once provisioned, data center administrators and end users are able to manage power operations and the details of machine configurations.
"PMG Accelerators are designed to provide out-of-the-box functionality with prebuilt templates and workflows to get new service offerings incorporated into the service catalog more quickly and efficiently," said Joe LeCompte, principal of PMG. "With the Cloud Accelerator, data center managers can better meet their customers' virtual needs, helping to greatly reduce cloud sprawl, which ensures governance and security within the organization."
The Cloud Accelerator is premiering today at the Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas, NV. A Silver Sponsor of the conference, PMG will be demonstrating its latest capabilities in booth #319. UnitedHealth Group, a PMG customer, will also be featured at the conference, speaking to their success in the cloud and with the PMG Service Catalog Suite.
