Introducing IBM Cloud Automation Starter Library

Cloud Automation Starter LibrarySome IT operators have trouble keeping up with increasing demand for more capabilities and higher efficiency. Many lack access to the skilled resources needed to automate all the tasks necessary to keep up with the faster pace.

There is no standardized set of automation instructions that fits every cloud platform. Creating end-to-end automation that can deploy and manage workloads can be difficult to do with existing tools. It can get complicated and expensive—and you might face the risk of losing control of workloads. How can IT operators handle these challenges?

Introducing the IBM Cloud Automation Starter Library. The starter library contains automation building locks that help IT operators deploy a select set of cloud-native payloads. This library is delivered as a service at no cost through IBM Cloud Automation Manager.

The automation building blocks deploy components on any cloud supported IBM Cloud Automation Manager. They can be further customized using IBM-recommended tooling and guidelines. Users can receive library updates by synchronizing their repositories with Cloud Automation Manager Hub.

Some of the automated deployments you can perform include:

  • MEAN stack
  • LAMP stack
  • Kubernetes cluster with NGINX
  • Three-tier Strongloop

You can take back control of your multicloud environment, save time, and always stay up-to-date. Our starter library will help you accelerate your cloud-native workload deployments. Get started at no cost today. Learn more about IBM Cloud Automation Libraries on our website.
