LONDON, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Real Status Ltd. today announced Hyperglance release 3.4 with new features to further unify, simplify, and strengthen IT management across modern day platforms such as OpenStack®, Amazon Web Services™ (AWS), HP VAN SDN Controller, and OpenDaylight™.
"Hyperglance embraces hybrid cloud flexibility by removing the complexity of managing virtual and physical IT resources, relationships, and flows across disparate platforms, " said Stace Hipperson, CEO and Founder of Real Status. "IT management teams can enjoy more secure and relevant full-scale IT asset visualization, exploration, analysis, and control across entire hybrid cloud estates."
New Hyperglance Features and Benefits:
- Role-based Access Control (RBAC) to securely enable IT management and map to organizational structure.
- OpenStack Ceilometer integration to layer desired metrics for more complete analysis.
- Tested integration with OpenStack distributions from HP, Mirantis, Rackspace, and Red Hat for expanded insight and control.
- OpenDaylight Helium support for the latest in Software-defined Networking (SDN) management.
RBAC for More Secure Unified IT Management:
The addition of RBAC capabilities allows a wider array of users to securely gain access to Hyperglance with job appropriate views and controls. Features include:
- Access restriction per account
- View only mode
- LDAP and static file support
- Administrative access
Cloud Metrics Aggregation for Better Decision-Making:
OpenStack Ceilometer collects a wide array of metering data across OpenStack managed resources. Hyperglance has pre-integrated a sub-set of relevant Ceilometer metrics with the ability to incorporate more. Users can create preferred views and filters with the right metrics to more rapidly achieve objectives such as optimum utilization and performance.
More Cloud Deployment Options without the Risk of Losing Control:
OpenStack has become the industry leading open source cloud operating system with top vendors providing supported distributions deployed via the cloud, on-premise, or a hybrid approach. While assuring more platform supportability, vendor distributions can introduce interoperability issues among different OpenStack deployments. Hyperglance assures that, regardless of choices made among OpenStack options, AWS, or SDN platforms, organizations can cohesively manage their virtual and physical assets for their entire cloud estate.
Real Status has proactively tested and tuned Hyperglance with the following OpenStack distributions:
- Public or Managed Cloud (off-premise)
- Mirantis OpenStack Express
- HP Helion Public Cloud
- Rackspace Public Cloud
- Private Cloud (on-premise)
- OpenStack® (open source)
- HP Helion OpenStack
- Mirantis OpenStack
- Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® OpenStack® Platform
Hyperglance also added initial integration support for the OpenDaylight Helium release SDN controller. Further development will continue. Hyperglance will continue to support its robust integration with OpenDaylight Hydrogen as well.
Unifying More Data and Management Teams for More Effective IT Operations:
"Regardless of modern cloud and SDN platform decisions, Hyperglance can be configured to securely provide the most relevant views, data, and actions to the appropriate team members," Real Status' Hipperson adds. "As a result, management can more easily optimize IT resources across both organizational and IT boundaries."
