Following the client outsourcing their IaaS capability to a 3rd party, providing a managed private cloud environment, Automation Logic were engaged to manage the integration of all of the client’s systems and business processes with the outsourced capability. This included: core network services, directory services, CMDB, and order fulfilment.
Automation Logic led the development of a Cloud Manager solution utilising HPE OO alongside in-house Run Book Automation technologies to manage resources within the data centre. Services instances exposed via the HPE CSA API are made available to customers via the Cloud Manager through an in-house portal. ServiceNow integration provides the ability to integrate with Change Management Process and report Service Instance attributes to CMDB, in-line with Provisioning and Lifecycle Actions.
The project serves to reduce cost by standardising on an OS platform, x86 commodity hardware, and full automation of repetitive administrative tasks.
