HotLink unites cloud management under VMware vSphere
With VMware, Inc.’s Vsphere owning more than half of the on-premise virtualization market, the people at HotLink Corp. have a simple proposition: Why not use VMware’s VCenter console to manage an entire hybrid cloud ecosystem?
The company today is rolling out a cloud management platform that promises to unite management of major public and private cloud platforms under a single console based upon vCenter. Called Cloud Management Express, the platform manages Microsoft Azure, VMware VCloud Air, OpenStack and Amazon Web Services EC2 platforms in the public cloud, as well as OpenStack, Microsoft Hyper-V, Red Hat, Inc. KVM and Xen cloud platforms behind the firewall.
Acting as an extension to vCenter, Cloud Management Express abstracts the various hybrid platforms and workloads and treats them like vSphere hosts and virtual machines, mapping vSphere commands to each platform’s native syntax and consolidating systems management information in a single console. It’s designed to download and install quickly and discover existing clouds with minimal setup. “All of our products are packaged solutions with minor support over the phone,” said Jerry McLeod, VP of Business Development at HotLink.
