ManageIQ announced EVM Version 5 (V5), providing unified cloud management that enables IT services to be easily provisioned and managed across physical, virtual, private and public cloud infrastructures, including Amazon and Rackspace.

This new release builds on ManageIQ’s deep technical expertise and success helping enterprise IT organizations, including a growing number of Fortune 1000 customers, adopt and manage virtualized private clouds.

By extending EVM management capabilities, including provisioning, resource management, monitoring, governance and compliance to public cloud platforms, ManageIQ provides an enterprise-grade, single platform to manage the migration and successful adoption of hybrid cloud computing.

“ManageIQ has been helping enterprise IT organizations successfully adopt cloud computing through a transformational approach that typically starts with moving from virtualization to private clouds,” said Joseph Fitzgerald, ManageIQ Chief Product Officer. “We see our customers evolving their cloud strategies to include public clouds, so we have extended EVM to manage both private and public clouds in an integrated, hybrid fashion – addressing the needs of cloud management in the enterprise.”

Effective delivery and management of IT services across hybrid clouds requires real-time management and automation capabilities that are “unified by design” – not loosely coupled, point-tool integrations that leave visibility, governance and automation gaps. ManageIQ addresses these requirements architecturally, through an Adaptive Management Platform that enables continuous closed-loop management, tightly coupling provisioning together with configuration, resource and workload automation.

Its industry-leading EVM Suite now supports hybrid cloud infrastructures with unified monitoring, management and automation, giving IT organizations operational visibility and control through a single pane of glass. EVM delivers user self-service provisioning and management uniformly and transparently across hypervisors and cloud providers, enabling optimal service delivery based on business policies, service levels and cost.

EVM V5’s unified self-service provisioning, monitoring, metering/chargeback, adaptive automation and policy-based orchestration with role-based executive, operational and user dashboards has been extended beyond physical and virtual infrastructures to public and hybrid clouds, including:

- Public cloud support for Amazon (AWS and CloudWatch).

- OpenStack support for both public cloud providers such as Rackspace, and for private clouds, as well as VMware vCloud support delivered in 4Q2012.

- Support for a broad range of IT services from simple, single systems to complex n-tier systems delivered from a self-service portal as well as through other enterprise service catalogs and portals.

- Powerful service orchestration capabilities for requesting, configuring and managing services, as well as holistic visibility and policy-based control over services including power operations, flexing and monitoring.

EVM V5’s out-of-the-box integration with other enterprise management systems maximizes operational efficiencies and leverages existing IT investments across hybrid clouds, including:

- Service automation for provisioning, flexing and decommissioning, driven via change management systems and enterprise service catalogs, as well as IT Process and orchestration tools.

- Service monitoring with policy-based incident and alert creation, containing comprehensive contextual information to reduce mean-time-to-repair.

- Real time discovery and monitoring capabilities that ensure CMDBs are kept accurate and up-to-date.

- Usage and metering information can be federated into financial management systems for billing and chargeback.

- Supported integrations include ServiceNow, CA, Microsoft Systems Center, BMC, HP, F5 and NetApp, as well as RESTful and SOAP-based management web-services.

EVM V5 will be generally available September 30, 2012.
