The latest update to CloudBolt’s Command and Control (C2) cloud management platform brings to the table a compendium of updates set to redefine the way IT organizations manage their networked environments.

“Customers have spoken—and they’re saying that using C2′s easily-accessible and broad capabilities to manage both existing on-premises virtualization, but also instances in all of the leading public cloud providers puts us above the rest,” said Justin Nemmers, CloudBolt’s EVP of Marketing. “When implemented, C2 enables those same customers to completely automate the entirety of their provisioning and management of server and application resources, saving tremendous amounts of time and money in the process,” Nemmers added.

Here’s a round-up of newly introduced features unique to C2′s latest release:

* With the latest update, C2 adds support for Google Compute Engine. It’s now possible to install, manage applications from a supported configuration manager, as well as to include GCE instances in service catalog templates.

* The OpenStack connector has been re-based to include support for the current and previous two versions of OpenStack, including Icehouse, Havana, and Grizzly.

* Microsoft Azure cloud support has also been added. Customers can expand to use the best cloud for their hybrid and heterogeneous cloud needs.

* The configuration management capabilities have also been improved. C2 now has the unique capability to discover and import classes from a Puppet server. Chef integration has also been beefed up – Chef bootstrapping on Windows and Ubuntu Linux systems is now possible.

* A number of subtle yet highly focused updates to the C2 UI – including integrated simple indicators make it much easier to manage large number of servers and applications across multiple environments.

* Customers can automate the assignment and tracking of IP addresses and hostnames that are stored in Infoblox.

The updates further improve on C2′s existing Gartner-recognized time-to-value, making it even faster. This empowers customers to achieve agility goals more rapidly, reducing IT staff involvement by as much as a whopping 90-95%. The reduction enables organizations to focus on undertaking core value-added tasks more effectively. Since C2 integrates seamlessly with leading configuration management tools, users can effortlessly request and deploy full application stacks as need arises, accelerating overall application development procedures and deployment routines.
