Introduction to Morpheus data
As a Service Provider you need to have support for multiple platforms, multiple services, multiple applications but still having to have a consistent way to deliver each and every service to the end-customer. Now most vendors have their own self-service solution which works for their own service, the issue with these are that they often don’t integrate with others or are missing customization options to make it easier to do custom deployments. Now when I worked at BigTec I stumbled across Morpheus Data, but I didn’t have a chance to take a closer look at it until now. Now the cool thing with Morpheus is that it provides an orchestration layer across different platforms like (AWS, GCP, Microsoft Azure, vCloud Air, Nutanix, AzureStack even!)
Just a sneak peak of the dasbhoard
It can also integrate with load balancers like NetScaler, AVI and F5 which handles scaling of load balanced services. So just to give an example of how a service can be provisioned from within Morpheus. So for instance for a certain customer I can spin up resources on a cloud (Which can be either locally or in the cloud, I have a local ESX cluster I can deploy resources to)
I can choose NGINX which is a finished image I have available to deploy to my resources.
