Embotics Partners with HP - Opens up Cloud Management

OTTAWA, Ontario --(Business Wire)--

Embotics®, a leading provider of enterprise-class Cloud Management Software, today announced it has partnered with HP® to bring to market a fully Automated Cloud Management Capability for the HP Cloud Platform. The new release of Embotics vCommander™ will be commercially available this quarter, Q1 2014, and will expand on the company's mission of helping enterprises and service providers to better analyze, orchestrate, govern and broker across multi-hypervisor and multi-cloud environments.

"When it comes to customer needs, Embotics and HP share the same philosophy: No vendor lock-in," said Michael Torto, CEO of Embotics. "Supporting the larger ecosystem and enabling our customers and partners to deploy and manage platform-neutral IT services across private, public and hybrid cloud environments is what we are all about." Embotics is betting that the OpenStack-based HP Public Cloud will be a major contender to the on-prem platforms such as VMware vSphere and Microsoft (News - Alert) Hyper-V and other off-prem public clouds such as Amazon AWS.

HP Cloud is a transparent, enterprise-grade cloud based on OpenStack technology that was launched in 2013. It offers on-demand, pay-as-you-go cloud services�for computing and storage infrastructure, as well as platform services. HP Cloud has a robust ecosystem of partner solutions for storage, platform, management and orchestration.

Embotics' flagship product, vCommander, was developed for enterprises and service providers who are building and managing virtualized and cloud environments. Integration with HP Cloud allows vCommander to extend its cross-platform monitoring, provisioning automation, elf-service, chargeback, orchestration and policy controls into HP Cloud.

"We are thrilled to see Embotics teaming up with HP given both are currently strategic partners of the M7 group," said David Linzy, CEO of the M7 Global Partners, a national US consortium of leading IT service providers. "Extending the unique and innovative capabilities of Embotics vCommander into HP Cloud allows our customers to retain their freedom of choice when it comes to any current and future platform decisions, and to break the inherent lock-in of on-prem hypervisors within enterprise data centers."

Embotics' 100+ clients now include such high profile organizations as NASA, Cisco, the Netherlands Ministry of Defence, Cablevision, McKinsey & Company, Jabil Circuit (News - Alert), and Peak 10. One of Embotics' largest deployments provides federated management of close to 30 globally distributed data centers.
