CFEngine Unveils Enterprise 3.6.0 to Further Simplify and Automate IT While Enabling Security, Compliance and Management of WebScale Deployments

Expanded Offering Helps IT Deliver Automated, Secure and Compliant Services With Full Visibility and Continuous Operations Across Multiple Endpoints, Software Stacks, Environments and Clouds; New Environmental Integrations and Improved Language Abstractio

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- CFEngine Inc., the leading provider of IT automation at WebScale, today announced new capabilities and enhancements to its solution that simplify and enhance automation across multiple endpoints, software stacks, environments, and clouds. Today, the company announced general availability of Enterprise 3.6.0.

"For IT to become a strategic partner to the business, stay relevant, and be efficient while cutting costs automation of infrastructure and the application stack is very critical," said Yoav Boaz, Vice President of Product Management, CFEngine. "CFEngine 3.6.0 will continue to help IT automate, manage and deliver services in an agile and compliant manner while providing full visibility and control across the software stack regardless of the location or environment -- physical, virtual, container or in the cloud, or development, test, or production environments."

As IT organizations continue to evolve, CFEngine Enterprise 3.6.0 reliably provides key, new and extended functionality for IT automation:

Cross Cloud and Cross Environmental Visibility and Control of the IT Estate
CFEngine Enterprise 3.6.0 presents the users with a powerful visual dashboard, where they use customizable widgets to define scenarios unique to their environment. Using simple drag and drop capability the user customizes and enhances the dashboard experience. Using the intuitive dashboard, users can set policy, be alerted to drifts and deviations from the same, drill into and diagnose issues, and take relevant and necessary remedial action on non-compliant elements in their environment.

Enhanced Compliance and Inventory Reporting Capabilities
New reporting capabilities enable users to create filtered compliance and inventory reports on any of the hosts' attributes, regardless of the environment -- across production tiers, operating systems, and hosting platform, whether physical, virtual, or in the cloud. The level of IT governance provided in such a dynamic environment is unparalleled and the reporting capabilities help IT departments perform frequent audits and ensure regulatory and institutional compliance of their infrastructure and applications.

Productivity Gains with Language and Architecture Improvements
By deploying CFEngine Enterprise 3.6.0, IT operations teams will be more productive and more efficient than ever. Language abstractions allow for reduction in code of up to 90% in some cases. With native JSON support, CFEngine 3.6.0 provides easy integration with popular 3rd party solutions thus extending its reach within the datacenter. Architectural modifications allow CFEngine to scale to tens of thousands of managed elements with ease, making CFEngine a platform that is secure and stable, while providing IT Automation at WebScale.

Networking Support
The CFEngine abstraction model (specifying infrastructure as code) can also be applied to network management. CFEngine can configure, monitor, and manage network constructs and protocols such as vlan, vxlan tunnels (like openvswitch), bridging, bonding, routing, ospf, bgp without recourse to a proprietary central controller.

CFEngine Enterprise 3.6.0 will be available June 18, 2014. Customers interested in trying CFEngine 3.6.0 can contact CFEngine at [email protected].

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
