Gale Technologies is enhancing its suite of automated provisioning tools with a set of workflow tools that the company says allows IT organizations to create their own private cloud computing platforms based on existing IT infrastructure.
According to Garima Thockchom, VP of marketing for Gale Technologies, the company's provisioning tools are already used to automate much of the cloud management process. The new GaleForce Turnkey Cloud adds workflow management tools that span both virtual and physical servers. That capability is critical, says Thockchom, because other cloud computing platforms require all the components to be virtualized. In contrast, the Gale Technologies approach allows physical servers running mission-critical applications to be managed right alongside virtual servers, said Thockchom.
Thockchom says Gale Technologies' pre-defined workflow templates support HP, IBM and Dell Blades; switches based on Cisco IOS/CATOS, Juniper JunOS; NetApp NAS, EMC Clarion; VMware ESX and many other vendors and platforms.
Pricing for GaleForce Turnkey Cloud starts at $50,000, which includes the GaleForce 5.3 server, support for up to 15 physical resources and up to 60 virtual machines, two days of setup and training services and one year of standard support.
GaleForce, Gale Technologies flagship cloud enablement and resource provisioning solution, transforms static IT environments into dynamic private or hybrid clouds, enabling organizations to drastically reduce capital and operational expenditures. With GaleForce, IT operators are able to set up a cloud, lab, demo, or data center environment in just minutes, providing secure access to resources 24/7 from anywhere in the world. Using GaleForce, operators design rich service and infrastructure templates with drag-and-drop ease and publish them to a custom brandable Web portal catalog. When users reserve and schedule templates from the catalog, GaleForce seamlessly allocates and provisions appropriate physical and virtual resources from the pool of IT resources to bring the workload to life.
