According to a recent press release, “Quali, the leader in cloud sandbox software for cloud and DevOps automation, today announced the general availability of CloudShell 8.0 with second-generation shells which are easier to build and maintain, along with new support for Microsoft Azure and OpenStack based cloud platforms. Microsoft Azure is continuing to gain traction as a public cloud platform with a rich developer ecosystem. With the upcoming general availability of Microsoft Azure Stack, it is increasingly becoming attractive for hybrid cloud deployments.”
The release continues, “OpenStack adoption in enterprises is also increasingly successful as a private cloud platform with revenues growing at 35% CAGR, according to 451 Research. Adoption of OpenStack is increasing among organizations with over 1,000 employees both with on-premise and hosted OpenStack deployments. The 451 Research team predicts a growing number of use-cases across enterprise and service provider deployments. These include SDN, NFV, mobile and IoT, in addition to traditional use-cases in big data, DevOps, PaaS and serving line-of-business requirements.”
It goes on, “Recognizing this trend, Quali is expanding on its current support of cloud sandboxes over AWS and VMware vCenter to now include additional public and private clouds, becoming the industry’s only vendor to support cloud sandboxes with ‘one-click’ deployment paths for dev/test applications. The multi-cloud capabilities complement the unique ‘hybrid cloud sandbox’ capabilities that Quali announced last year. The Quali CloudShell platform automates and accelerates the cloud and DevOps lifecycle by providing dev, test, QA and compliance teams with authentic personal replicas of their production environments within software sandboxes. Taking a blueprint driven approach, Quali can drive standardization and scale workflows.”
