Abstract

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1.1

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns is a full-stack, environment management and deployment solution that enables you to design, deploy, and update full-stack-virtualized or cloud environments. UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1.1 delivers:

  • Enhanced environment portability with support for VMware vCenter and SoftLayer

  • Design and enforce auto-scaling policies for environment patterns

  • Manage Environment Pattern lifecycle, with ability to change application environments with full visibility into impact of change, and no disruption to the environment consumers

UrbanCode Deploy orchestrates and automates the deployment of applications, databases, and configurations into development, test, and production environments, helping to drive down cost and speed time to market with reduced risk. Clients who deploy applications on the cloud want to automate full stack including infrastructure, middleware, and applications, as well as use different cloud providers during development, test, staging, and production stages of the pipeline.

Extending the strengths of UrbanCode Deploy in automating application changes through the delivery pipeline, UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns helps enable clients to automate and simplify deployment and management of a full-stack application environment on any cloud.

Description

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1.1

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns is a full-stack environment management and deployment solution that enables clients to design, deploy and update full-stack virtualized or cloud environments.

Key release feature:Automated deployment of application environments to hybrid cloud providers

More and more organizations leverage a hybrid cloud strategy that is supported by multiple cloud providers to reduce operational risks, improve efficiency and reduce cost. Implementing a successful, hybrid cloud strategy requires an automated solution that can easily deploy application environments seamlessly across multiple cloud providers.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1.1 delivers:

  • Improvements to Environment Lifecycle Management. This gives you the ability to change application environments with full visibility into the impact of change, and zero disruption for environment consumers e.g. Developers and Testers

  • Enhanced cloud portability with support for SoftLayer, VMWare vCenter, and SoftLayer OpenStack Baremetal. You can deploy Cloud Portable Application environment patterns across a range of multiple cloud providers that includes Amazon, OpenStack, VMware vCenter, and SoftLayer.

  • Design and enforce auto-scaling policies for environment patterns. You can automate application performance SLAs and optimize costs by scaling the environment up and down as needed. Auto-scaling allows users to mitigate environmental challenges (such as cpu utilization, traffic demands, and so on) by leveraging the dynamic capabilities within the cloud to add or reduce services as demand dictates, optimizing both performance and cost.

  • UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1.1 is upgrading its support to IBM PureApplication Systems V2.0, enabling customers to easily deploy patterns from UrbanCode Deploy and leveraging the provisioned environments in the delivery pipeline. IBM PureApplication System V2.0 simplifies pattern customization of the IBM expert patterns.

Design full-stack application environments with a graphical editor

Organizations need the ability to capture and standardize the best practices for deploying application environments. Standardization and repeatability of application environments reduces delivery errors and improves efficiency of the delivery process.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns uses open standards defined by OpenStack to designate full-stack application blueprints as Heat Orchestration Template (HOT) documents. Infrastructure specialists, architects, and integrators can use a graphical and textual editor to easily assemble and update full-stack application blueprints from reusable building blocks such as scripts and templates for compute, storage, network, middleware, and applications.

Deploy full-stack application environments to any cloud

Organizations need the flexibility to deliver application environments to any cloud provider that meets the requirements for performance, service, security, and price. For this reason, more and more organizations are using multicloud and hybrid strategy across their delivery pipeline.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns enables architects and integrators to create portable application environment blueprints that can be automatically deployed to any cloud providers. UrbanCode Deploy uses OpenStack technology to enable cloud portability, including deployment to the Amazon public cloud.

Manage environment lifecycle and easily update environments

Because application changes require organizations to update the environments frequently, lack of change management for environment lifecycle becomes a challenge. In addition, organizations want the ability to deploy new, and update existing, environments at different stage of delivery pipeline.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns enables architects and integrators to easily manage the environment lifecycle and update existing cloud environments for any configuration changes.

Integrate environments into fully automated delivery process

Dynamic cloud environment is a core requirement of a delivery process; new environments are required by development, testing, troubleshooting, and production.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns enables release engineers to easily set up a multistage application delivery pipeline and use the application blueprints to dynamically provision new environments or update existing environments in production.

UrbanCode Deploy with Patterns V6.1 is an English only release.
