Software from Snow now supports new platforms, integrations and provisioning methods, with a view to easing the complexities around managing hybrid and multi cloud IT environments.
Sanjay Castelino, chief product and customer officer at Snow, said enhancements to its Snow Commander offering would simplify the extended use of cloud tech while delivering governance and visibility.
“Most organisations have a cloud strategy, but as they continue their cloud journey these businesses face a myriad of cloud and infrastructure management challenges,” Castelino said.
Proliferating cloud technologies make for increasingly complex hybrid and multi cloud IT environments, so organisations can benefit from simplified ways to consume cloud services, he added.
The Snow Commander improvements are aimed at increasing flexibility through support for new platforms and provisioning methods, improved integrations and enhanced support for global organisations, according to the vendor announcement.
Snow’s surveys indicate that the pace of digital transformation within many companies increased over the last year.
Overall cloud spend also rose, but many IT decision makers have reported a struggle to deliver new tech offerings while maintaining the rate of innovation and competitiveness being sought.
With a consistent end-to-end cloud management experience across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, organisations can more easily extend the cloud platforms and technologies under management.
“Snow Commander now provides support for organizations deploying Terraform Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC), which enables them to use Snow Commander to manage any resource deployed by Terraform regardless of the cloud platform in use,” the vendor said.
Additionally, Snow Commander can now manage Azure Stack HCI hyperconverged infrastructure clusters, combining on-prem infrastructure with Azure cloud services.
“Anything as a service” (XaaS) capabilities mean customers can create change requests with custom workflows against any type of resource that may exist within their hybrid cloud.
Meanwhile, representational state transfer application programming interface (REST API) enhancements are aimed at simplifing automation as well as integrations in more complex environments and configuration processes, the vendor said.
