FireScope Declares End to Disconnected, Siloed Cloud Management
Integrated on-premise and cloud instances enable FireScope to deliver complete visibility of the hybrid stack.
November 16th, 2010 – Huntington Beach, Ca. –FireScope, Inc., the fastest growing IT service management solutions company, today announced a new cloud offering to deliver business service views of hybrid cloud infrastructures spanning multiple vendors.
“While cloud management solutions have been around, they all fail to connect the dots in two important ways”, said Mark Lynd, President and COO of FireScope. “Firstly, they fail to link on-premise infrastructure to cloud-based resources, forcing a fragmented view of infrastructure performance. This is a huge mistake as most progressive organizations are taking a hybrid approach to the cloud. Secondly, they focus too much on the technology and not on the reason it exists in the first place, to deliver business outcomes. Knowing what assets are up and what’s down isn’t as important as knowing how these issues are impacting the quality of service and ultimately, the business. FireScope’s cloud strategy is designed specifically to address these two shortcomings in the market.“
Hybrid cloud architectures, wherein application components are distributed across on-demand public clouds and on-premise private clouds, enable organizations to take advantage of the cost effectiveness of public clouds and security of private clouds. FireScope’s approach to managing these hybrid clouds involves treating on-premise infrastructure and cloud resources - including Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) - all as a single business service. Events or performance degradation of any individual component is analyzed for its impact on user experience, enabling IT to focus work where it is impacting the business the most.
In addition to its current line of hardware and virtual appliances, FireScope is offering on-demand instances of each of its core offerings: Unify™ Business Service Management (BSM) - your dashboard for enterprise IT strategy; Orchestrate™ Configuration Management Database (CMDB) – your playbook for IT Operations; and Comply™ - your compass for managing IT compliance. An innovative message queue architecture enables appliances on-premise or in the cloud to push metrics and events to a corporate master where the events are analyzed for their impact on the business in terms of SLA’s, business metrics or compliance impact. Users consume this analysis via customizable dashboards published either from the cloud or internally.
Cloud Compliance Made Achievable
Compliance has been a significant barrier for many organizations investigating deployments in the public cloud. With the inclusion of FireScope Comply, the industry’s first compliance solution to combine Administrative, Operational and Continuous Control Monitoring (CCM) in a single solution, FireScope is able to deliver a new dimension of visibility to IT management; Regulatory status.
