Hyperconverged infrastructures could become easier to manage with Snow Software management capabilities, according to the vendor.
Sanjay Castelino, chief product officer at Snow, suggested a key aim is to simplify the consumption of cloud offerings across hybrid and multi-cloud environments while providing governance and visibility.
“Most organisations have a cloud strategy but, as they continue, these businesses face myriad cloud and infrastructure management challenges, including the proliferation of cloud technologies that leads to increasingly complex hybrid and multi-cloud environments,” Castelino said in the announcement.
Snow Commander can now manage Azure Stack HCI hyperconverged infrastructure clusters that combine on-prem with Azure cloud, and supports Terraform Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC). The latter means Commander can now manage any resource deployed by Terraform regardless of cloud platform in use.
“These recent enhancements make it easier for organisations to safely adopt and manage the cloud technologies they need to be competitive,” the vendor said.
“Improvements boost flexibility through support for new platforms and provisioning methods, improved integrations and enhanced support for global organisations.”
According to Snow, nearly all IT decision makers have seen the pace of digital transformation increase over the last year, with many organisations expanding their overall cloud spending.
Many are struggling to deliver new solutions at the required speed, the vendor said.
Snow Commander can help streamline IT services delivery as well as allowing users to consume cloud as they need it through self-service, according to the vendor, with the latest improvements offering a more consistent management experience across platforms.
“XaaS (anything as a service) capabilities enable customers to create change requests with custom workflows that can be used to make consistent Day-2 configuration changes against any type of resource that may exist within their hybrid cloud,” according to the announcement.
