Overview:

IT teams constantly seek to improve overall IT agility and enable more rapid innovation. However, application development and delivery is growing in complexity, making this agility particularly challenging. Organizational silos create cross-discipline overhead and slow the ability to deliver business value.

Calm provides advanced application-level orchestration that transforms how IT teams manage applications and support the business. Fully integrated into the Nutanix platform, Calm delivers a powerful, common management framework that can be simultaneously leveraged by multiple IT teams to rapidly create and deliver applications.

By approaching applications as complete entities, not just virtual machines (VMs), Calm automates how applications are created, consumed and governed. Calm delivers simple, repeatable and automated management of applications across a variety of environments, including private and public clouds.

Application Lifecycle Management and Cloud OrchestrationApplication Lifecycle Management and Cloud Orchestration

Nutanix Calm adds native application orchestration and lifecycle management to the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform. Calm decouples application management from the underlying infrastructure – enabling applications to be easily deployed into private or public cloud environments. The addition of advanced application management to the Nutanix platform turns common tasks into repeatable automations accessible to all IT teams, without giving up control across the infrastructure stack.

Calm brings advanced policy-based governance, allowing applications to be automatically provisioned into public clouds, with full visibility of cost and utilization. Organizations can intelligently balance renting versus buying when making infrastructure decisions. A common framework for modeling both applications and infrastructure breaks down rigid IT silos and accelerates the overall time to production for critical applications and services

Features:


Application Lifecycle Management

Simplify the set-up and management of custom enterprise applications by incorporating all elements of each app, including relevant VMs, configurations and related binaries, into an easy-to-use-blueprint that is managed by the infrastructure team. By making the deployment and lifecycle management of common applications both automated and easily repeatable, infrastructure teams can eliminate the hours and days devoted to routine application management.

  • End-to-End Application View
    View and provision complete applications, not just individual application components, such as VMs.
  • Definable Actions and Dependencies
    Define lifecycle policies that automate the configuration of multiple app components in a single operation.
  • Unified Application Language
    Provide a single flexible construct to improve collaboration between teams and avoid cross-discipline errors.
