Embrane,® the leader in delivering application-centric network services, today announced that BMC Software is the latest enterprise to accelerate its development of applications, respond faster to the needs of the business and save money by deploying Embrane’s application-centric firewalls.
The initial plan is for BMC to use Embrane’s application-centric firewalls in its development and test labs. Running on the Embrane heleos platform, BMC can deploy 100’s of dedicated firewalls when and where needed while managing them all from a single point of control for lifecycle management.

“Our goal is to create a more agile, secure and self-service dev/test environment, which will allow us to create applications faster with network services deployed earlier in the development process,” said Scott Crowder, CIO of BMC. “The beauty of the Embrane platform is that it’s deployed on top of our standard virtualization platform, can scale out as needed, and the aggregate licensing model allows us to share resources across multiple locations on a common infrastructure platform.”
By leveraging Embrane’s RESTful application programming interfaces (APIs), BMC intends to create an automated self-service portal leveraging its Cloud Lifecycle Management platform where developers can design dedicated firewalls for the applications they are building. Once those firewalls are provisioned, rules can be created and assigned to the application. This ensures the application is tested in an environment that closely resembles what it will be when it’s in production. The agility of the Embrane firewalls also allows each firewall to be parked with the configuration and log files saved for future use once development is complete. If the firewall is needed again, it can be elastically re-provisioned in seconds.
“BMC is the latest innovative enterprise to benefit from the agility, operational simplicity and savings Embrane delivers,” said Dante Malagrinò, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer of Embrane. “We give the Infrastructure teams at BMC the tools they need to become even more responsive to the needs of the business while addressing real challenges they face today.”
Malagrinò added, “BMC recognized that the rigidity and costs of network services prohibited them from including them early enough in the development process. With Embrane, we give them a cost-effective way to introduce network services early in the development process, which in turn reduces the risk that an application breaks when it is moved to production.”
By leveraging the Embrane heleos platform, BMC will be able to run other application-centric network services from Embrane or from third parties, including the Cisco ASAv, Sourcefire virtual appliances, Citrix VPX and A10 Networks vThunder.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
