  • Boost cloud efficiency and predict future expenses with enhanced
    analytics, policy-based quotas and consolidated reporting for AWS and
    Microsoft Azure.
  • Simplify Hybrid IT management and accelerate digital transformation
    with updates to existing AWS, Microsoft, Google, VMware, and Nutanix
    support.
  • Improve visibility of application deployments across multiple clouds
    with ITSM integration into Cherwell and BMC Remedy.

These announcements are on top of a record-setting first-quarter for the
rapidly growing automation and orchestration vendor. Morpheus was
recently named as a Leader in Gartner’s
Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms
(CMP) and one of the
20 Coolest Cloud Platform Vendors Of The 2019 Cloud 100 by CRN.

A recent 451
Research Webinar
highlighted that 66% of organizations are now
either using or considering using a CMP. This is being driven by the
fact that 73% of organizations will use cloud as the primary basis for
workload deployment by 2020 yet 90% reported skills shortages in
cloud-related disciplines.

Cloud computing is in its second decade, but enterprises still
struggle to fully capitalize because of economic and organizational
challenges,
” said Brad Parks, VP of Business Development, Morpheus
Data. “Today’s updates bridge the gap and set Morpheus apart as the
best full-stack provider of agnostic multi cloud management.”

Boost cloud efficiency and predict future expenses with enhanced cost
analytics

As cloud management matures, standalone cloud optimization products are
giving way to comprehensive approaches such as Morpheus which help
enterprises get cloud spend under control while also providing the
governance to eliminate future problems.

Morpheus now synchronizes actual costs from both AWS including
month-to-date, estimated spend, and last month’s costs. New cost reports
and visualizations are broken down by service and tag plus include data
on both On-Demand and Reserved hours per EC2 Instance Type. This same
level of accuracy and insight is applied to Microsoft Azure and will
soon be extended to enable the application of additional cost-saving
recommendations for both cloud providers. Lastly, cost reporting is
updated to show budget variance between budgeted amount and actual
spending per tenant.

These updates are on top of existing best-in-class brownfield discovery
and guided remediation to improve efficiency across over a dozen cloud
platforms. In the past 12 months, Morpheus leveraged machine learning to
help customers identify millions of dollars of cost savings. More
importantly, these organizations are now able to apply governance and
consolidated reporting across projects, teams, and tenants so they can
focus less on cost and more on improving IT agility.

Simplify Hybrid IT management with the broadest cloud support in the
industry

Recent research indicates that 68% of enterprises will be using more
than one cloud platform to provide services but for already overloaded
IT departments this means having to learn multiple tools and processes
to perform the same activities.

Morpheus eliminates the need to learn multiple tools by providing a
standardized approach to automate provisioning of new application
environments across over 20 cloud platforms. Cloud specific enhancements
in the recent release include:

  • AWS: Accelerate onboarding of existing accounts by adding all
    VPC’s in a region at the same time before applying role-based access
    to govern use. Also seamlessly respond to workload spikes via Amazon
    scale-groups in addition to native Morpheus scaling.
  • Microsoft: More easily create and manage resource pools in
    Azure plus more easily and securely manage large-scale SCVMM based
    on-prem clouds.
  • Google: Take full advantage of Morpheus third-party
    multi-network integrations for IPAM, DNS and more plus easily
    provision Windows VMs.
  • VMware: Easily manage and deploy applications to a VMware
    Integrated OpenStack (VIO) cloud in addition to existing support and
    certification for vSphere, ESXi, and vCloud Director.
  • Nutanix: Morpheus is now Nutanix Ready certified plus
    integration has been enhanced with more robust brownfield discovery,
    hypervisor console access, and improved Windows provisioning
    automation.

Improve visibility into infrastructure changes with new ITSM
integrations

A 2018 survey of IT service management professionals found that 70
percent of respondents believed there had been insufficient involvement
of ITSM personnel in their companies DevOps activities.i It’s
historically been a case of Dev teams outpacing Ops when it comes to
automation.

To help bring the worlds of ITSM and DevOps closer together Morpheus
combines a rich automation and cloud orchestration platform with hooks
into ITSM tools so customers get better visibility from service request
to service delivery. This announcement adds both Cherwell and BMC Remedy
to existing integration with ServiceNow.

  • Cherwell: Morpheus is an official technology partner of
    Cherwell and initial integration includes the ability to synchronize
    change requests between Cherwell and Morpheus and coordinate execution
    of actions.
  • BMC Remedy: Morpheus is an official technology partner of BMC
    and initial integration includes ability to manage the change
    management database (CMDB) for any workloads Morpheus discovers or
    provisions.
  • ServiceNow: Morpheus is an official technology partner of
    ServiceNow with a certified ServiceNow plug-in. Integration points
    include service catalog, approval workflows, CMDB, and incident
    management.

If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity.
