ZSL's SmartPrise Cloud Manager's cross-cloud management console is an endeavor to bring in the best cloud management tools to all popular cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, OpSource, Microsoft, IBM, Canonical Ubuntu, RightScale, Google and many more. It acts as a centralized management console for applications, storage servers and other disaster and recovery operations on various cloud platforms of the public, private, hybrid and community clouds which helps in Provisioning : Provides the cloud users with the appropriate number of virtual machines (VMs) and allocates the essential resources to support applications and services to be deployed in the cloud.
Configuration Management: Supplies provides the necessary configuration management in a cloud computing environment, i.e. installation of the Operating System (OS) like Windows, Linux, UNIX, etc., and installation of the software required to run VMs in a cloud.
Automation : The ability to deploy, update, repair and generate reports of VMs and servers. SCM automates the application infrastructure using pre-defined specification, commands and procedures.
Monitoring : The console has a well-defined monitoring system that has the power to have an understanding of all the instances operating in the cloud.
Orchestration : It provides a programmed arrangement and synchronization between provisioning, configuration management, automation and monitoring.
Our user friendly cloud management interface helps you to analyze any aspect of the cloud from a macro level to an underlying detail at ease. Our management console, SCM is not only user friendly but, also, is custom friendly i.e. our product is available to the users catering to their specific needs. The users will be provided with customized features giving them an extra edge compared to other cloud providers. We provides SCM not only as a product but also as a service allowing you to manage Multiple Resources (Images, Volumes, Snapshots, etc), Elastic Block Store (EBS), Simple Storage Services (S3), User management & Policy generator, Cloud Hosting, Reports and many more.
SmartPrise's portfolio of cloud services helps you to understand cloud computing better and align it to your own IT landscape and business goals, and helps in witnessing greater results. Our hybrid onshore/offshore model provides you with a cost advantage without compromising on quality.
Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) resources management dashboard provides a more in-depth view of your account. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
Simple Storage Services (S3) stores data as objects within buckets. ZSL's SCM's S3 has the facility to set authentications to the object as well as to the metadata. It also has a value added facility of object versioning. Each object that is deleted gets saved as versions and is retrievable.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) feature enables you to create and manage users under the umbrella of your account.
Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a service that sends notifications from the cloud to subscribers over clients' protocol of choice, i.e. HTTP, email, and/or SMS.
To create and manage a collection of resources, provisioning and renewing them in an orderly and predictable fashion is achieved through Cloud Formation.
Cloud Watch provides a reliable, scalable, and flexible monitoring solution for all cloud resources and applications.
With VPC, the users can define a virtual network topology that closely resembles a traditional network that the users might operate in their own datacenter.
Simple Queue Service (SQS) offers a reliable, highly scalable, hosted queue for storing messages as they travel between multiple virtual machines.
Cloud Front is a web service for content delivery. It integrates with other Web Services clouds to distribute content to end-users with low latency and high data transfer speeds.
A tool that enables the users to create policies that controls access to products and resources. ZSL's SCM provides a rich User Interface where the policy document is written in Access Policy Language.
A unique functionality provisioned by ZSL's SCM for data storage. Simple Database (DB) comprises of many elements and management of these set of data is made easier.
ZSL SmartPrise Cloud Manager's Advanced Features refer to the value additional features provided to cloud users to increase their revenues with efficiency. These sophisticated features offer more significance to your usage of the cloud at an inexpensive package. Some of our advanced features are as follows:
A facility to switch between multiple accounts in one click and assist in easy management and monitoring of all setup accounts/environments.
Similar to switching between multiple accounts, our console also provides an enhanced facility to switch between multiple clouds in one click. This eases the process for the user.
An exclusive feature available and applicable only for windows instances. A minimum boot volume is set by default to the respective windows instances and can be increased depending on the users' needs.
A facility of generating detailed usage reports and graphical representations. These usage reports, in a tabular format, provide the users with a daily summary and particulars of their cloud resource usage and management.
One of the major features of SCM is Cloud Cost Management. Our console assists users to Identify, Define, Manage, and Optimise the cloud usages and the costs involved. It lets its users to know the initial configuration, resource utilisation & scaling criteria i.e. disk space usage to exceed 80%, capital costs & operational costs related to infrastructure and functional clusters, active & inactive instances.
Recognizes orphan EBS Volumes, Provides Spot Instances
Provides a web based UI for running periodic tasks on the cloud. The user can configure a task to run once at a specific time or specify a recurring time interval. An instance could also be launched as a scheduled task. Through scheduling, an EBS backed instance could be started and/or stopped and yet an elastic IP can be assigned.
It provides the necessary configuration management in a cloud computing environment, i.e. installation of the Operating System (OS) like Windows, Linux, UNIX, etc., and installation of the software required to run VMs in a cloud.
It has the facility to reserve elastic IP address to specific instances ID. An ability to enable a port for a range of IP addresses for a specific security group automatically.
Our console provides access to EC2 instances from any remote location by connecting through the web. Web based protocols such as RDP, VNC or SSH Sessions can be run to have a direct connection to EC2 instances. This gives the users' the flexibility to work, install, and configure servers from anywhere, at any time.
SCM provides the cloud users with the appropriate number of virtual machines (VMs) and allocates the essential resources to support applications and services to be deployed in the cloud.
When an instance is terminated, the volumes of the respective instance would get terminated. Whereas, the volumes attached manually to the instances would still remain active. Now, our console provides an enhanced User Interface to users with a confirmation prompt for terminating the manually attached volumes. This conserves time and money for users.
It has eased out the process of individual installation of applications with its prime features being Centralized Storage, Memory, Processors, and Bandwidth Allocation and its benefit being ‘Pay-as-you-go' that is ‘Opex vs. Capex'.
An enhanced feature of mapping the disk drive in the local system directly to the cloud. Back-ups and snapshots are made easily accessible to all S3 buckets, files and directories. Working on the S3 files and buckets is so effortless, just like working in your local drive.
An ability to deploy, update, repair and generate reports of VMs and servers. It automates the application infrastructure using pre-defined specification, commands and procedures.
SmartPrise Cloud Sync orchestrates two different serves on the cloud. It checks for updates in any node in a load balanced cluster and synchronizes it with the other set of nodes in another cluster using the AMI. The Sync can work one-way and two-way for single or multiple nodes.
It provides users with a unique customization option by means of Scripting Support. If any user wants to add any minor yet effective feature, SCM's scripting support will help them create these customizations without the need of an actual developer involved. This makes the cloud management console user friendly and accessible.
A well-defined monitoring system that has control and understandability of all the instances operating over the cloud.
It provides a programmed arrangement and synchronization between provisioning, configuration management, automation and monitoring.
