Morpheus Data is making major updates to its next generation cloud management platform to help IT operations teams orchestrate software defined networks, multi-cloud high availability, and more.
By bringing together over 75 third-party tools under a single out-of-the-box automation engine, Morpheus lets IT quickly provide self-service provisioning to developers and accelerate application deployments by 150x or more.
New integrations enable customers to:
- Simplify networking with VMware NSX and phpIPAM
- Assure service levels with the Zerto IT Resilience Platform
- Scale IT automation with Ansible Tower and Ansible Vault
The Morpheus multi-cloud management platform insulates developers from the complexities of app deployment and simplifies automation of complex workflows for IT operations.
Morpheus Data added SDN orchestration as part of its end-to-end self-service provisioning platform earlier this year starting with Cisco ACI.
The updates extend SDN support to VMware NSX to enable seamless orchestration of virtual cloud networks and automation of NSX alongside other key networking tasks such as IP Address Management, DNS, and more.
With just a few mouse clicks, customers can add their NSX Manager to the Morpheus CMP; once added, Morpheus will synchronize Transport Zones, Logical Switches, and Edge Gateways. Customers can also create NSX services directly from Morpheus, eliminating the need to wait on networking teams. The NSX integration builds on existing VMware support in Morpheus for vSphere and vCloud Director.
With this release, Morpheus has also added phpIPAM to its list of third-party IP address management integrations which already includes Infoblox and Bluecat.
Once pointed at the IPAM API server, Morpheus ingests all IP pool and DNS zone details. Morpheus can automatically assign IP addresses and create DNS records at provisioning time plus provide cleanup upon teardown without users having to go into a different interface.
Morpheus provides the ability set data protection policies across clouds with cloud-native backup integration as well as support for Veeam and Commvault.
With the newest release, Morpheus has partnered with Zerto to enable real-time establishment of continuous data protection policies that leverage the Zerto IT Resilience Platform.
In addition to data protection updates, the latest Morpheus release includes enhanced Object Storage and CIFS/NFS connectivity to take advantage of lower cost and more scalable repositories for unstructured data.
With the most recent release, Morpheus has extended its Ansible integration to include Ansible Tower. The integration enables Morpheus to inventory Tower via API to retrieve playbooks, variables, and host information as well as support the initiation of execution requests that include Ansible Vault credentials.
