SAN ANTONIO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 11/18/14 -- ProfitBricks, the price/performance leader in cloud computing IaaS, has once again raised the bar for cloud computing infrastructure and data center management by releasing a completely new version of its unique Data Center Designer.
In response to today's increasingly complex cloud infrastructure provisioning and deployment processes, the new Data Center Designer (DCD) is a complete rewrite of ProfitBricks' game-changing visual management tool, enabling even easier design and management of cloud computing infrastructures. Included with all ProfitBricks cloud computing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) accounts, the new DCD further reduces design and management overhead with faster performance, streamlined tools, more intuitive visual representations and comprehensive account information.
This revolutionary "virtual white board" interface serves a broad range of technical and non-technical users, and lets enterprises benefit from the flexible, scalable potential of cloud-based infrastructure. ProfitBricks is the only cloud computing IaaS provider to offer an integrated data center infrastructure management tool with drag-and-drop GUI for designing, configuring, deploying and managing cloud-based virtual data centers.
"The ProfitBricks Data Center Designer makes the cloud tangible for our team," said Roger Heaston, CTO with PlaceWise Media, the leading digital marketer for malls and retailers. "The experience is like ordering servers, storage and networking gear from a VAR -- but without the waiting, shipping, unboxing, racking and physical configuring. We use the virtual white board to drag and drop resources into place, and then deploy the infrastructure with a single click. The IaaS network is deployed and available in minutes, and easily managed by our network and system administrators."
Some of the key customer-driven improvements and additions in ProfitBricks DCD are:
- Scalable vector graphics and faster rendering engines
- Easier representation and management of network topologies
- UX-streamlining capabilities such as type-ahead and multiple-resource selection
- Fully integrated account details, including payments, authentication management, and cloud cost estimates
- A more expandable architecture and broader support for the cloud ecosystem
The DCD visual interface lets network professionals drag and drop network connections and devices into complex cloud virtual data centers. None of the functionality in premises-based data centers is lost -- a claim only ProfitBricks can make. Combined with ProfitBricks' InfiniBand-based network, DCD provides the most powerful software-defined networking capability in the public cloud today. With limitless networks, customers use the GUI to create as many Network Interface Controllers (NICs) and server connections as they require; the associated switching, routing and forwarding functions are automatically implemented via Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies.
ProfitBricks' mission is to make Cloud Computing IaaS easier to deploy and manage, making it a viable IT platform for a broader range of businesses. Traditional infrastructure equipment and operational costs can be shifted to core competencies and the customer experience.
"Our new visual drag-and-drop interface lets businesses completely re-imagine the data center, free of legacy encumbrances," noted Achim Weiss, co-founder, CEO and CTO of ProfitBricks. "DCD is so intuitive that even non-technical employees can use it to understand and modify infrastructure and resources. The tool is the latest of our offerings to help free businesses from the limited, inflexible choices provided by industry incumbents. We're providing a better, 'unbound' cloud experience that delivers on the true promise of cloud computing."
Data Center Designer is available now at no extra cost as part of all ProfitBricks cloud computing IaaS accounts. Visit www.profitbricks.com for additional details and a live demo.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
