Virtualization and cloud provisioning services are driving a fundamental shift in the way applications are deployed. VMware's own IT organization cut costs by 30% and sped up application provisioning by 90%, improving the quality of service to the engineering teams and saving valuable dollars in overall R&D by building out a self-service portal using vFabric Application Director to automate and standardize application provisioning without unnecessarily limiting engineering.
Application Director's power is in standardizing application components, and then allowing them to be assembled in many different ways and deployed on any cloud. Full applications such as Liferay or even application components like tc Server and Postgres can be selected and deployed in minutes, regardless of how well versed you are in the technology. As an example, our own Pete Cruz took Application Director for a spin last fall and was able to get a fully clustered Oracle WebLogic deployment up in under 30 minutes.
With the advent of the Cloud Applications Marketplace last fall, IT doesn't even have to worry about standardizing these components for deployment in their own environments. Hundreds of ready-to-use best-practice software is available for download.
Join us on March 6 at 10 am PST, when VMware teams up with Liferay, one of the partners on the Cloud Applications Marketplace, to show you how easy it is to simplify lifecycle management for enterprise software. Regardless if you are deploying across private, public or hybrid cloud environments, customers will be introduced to a new way to simplify management and lower the cost of ownership of Liferay’s open source applications.
Join us for a webinar to learn more about:
- Leveraging Liferay Portal availability within the VMware Cloud Applications Marketplace™
- Managing applications holistically and separately from the supporting infrastructure
- Building and managing applications that move and run across public and private clouds
