CloudBolt Adds Container, SDN, Cloud Support to Management Platform

CloudBolt Software recently added a host of new features to its flagship cloud management platform, including support for new cloud platforms, software-defined networking and container services.

CloudBolt customers can now virtualize their networks with access to VMware NSX directly through the platform, with additional support for Docker and Kubernetes for app containerization. The company has also added support for IBM SoftLayer, HP Helion and CenturyLink Cloud, raising the total number of cloud platforms compatible with CloudBolt to thirteen, according to the announcement.

“In the past year, we have seen a marked increase in the number of enterprises that want to take advantage of the benefits of SDN and container technologies,” said Jon Mittelhauser, CEO of CloudBolt, in a statement. “Our latest version of CloudBolt enables enterprise IT to more easily and cost effectively access and reap the benefits of these technologies, by providing a simple and powerful interface to deploy and manage them.”

CloudBolt’s addition of Docker and Kubernetes marks the first time that microservices management have been available on the company’s platform. And compatibility with VMware NSX is expected to give customers the ability to spin up virtual environments within the CloudBolt platform so they can utilize SDN and NFV to simplify their network configuration and management, according to the company.  

And by expanding the number of cloud environments available to customers, CloudBolt said it has given users a wider range of locations to configure and publish capacity through the CloudBolt Service Catalog, including sites in Canada, India, Italy and Mexico. The latest version of the platform also extends support for OpenStack and Cloud Foundry.

News of CloudBolt’s expanded platform comes just weeks after the company announced it would move its corporate headquarters from Washington, D.C. to Silicon Valley. The three-year-old company recently received an additional $2 million in funding from investors as it looks to meet increased demand from customers.
