Founded in 2012, Cloudify features anEaaS (Environment as a Service technology) which the company boasts is responsible for the lifecycle management of applications and network services. Cloudify packages infrastructure, networking, and existing automation tools into certified blueprints.
Cloudify features different orchestration and automation domains as part of one common CI/CD pipeline, intent-based modelling, and Day-2 operation engines. Cloudify’s Day- 2 operations focus on maintaining, monitoring, and optimizing the system throughout the lifecycle.
Using the Cloudify console, says the company, users are able to import existing automation templates and scripts, which automatically convert into environments. The environments can be exported to ServiceNow which enables users to deploy, continuously manage and maintain them as part of workflows.
The main Cloudify program is called Azure. The company declares that Azure is a “powerful platform for DevOps, but it can be challenging to automate.” Azure Stack is an extension of Azure that runs in your own data center. It allows you to develop, test, and deploy applications using containers and serverless computing technologies.
Cloudify upgraded its offering to support Azure ARM templates and Azure DevOps. Azure Stack is based on an open-source Cloud Foundry platform. It makes for easy automated deployment on Azure hybrid cloud and management of applications in the cloud. Cloudify allows users to deploy complex applications on any cloud platform and automate their lifecycle while taking advantage of native capabilities such as auto-scaling and application blueprints.
