Smartscale Systems™ Brings Drop Dead Simple Cloud Lifecycle Management to Users of HP Cloud Services

May 10, 2012 - Campbell, Calif. - Smartscale Systems, the leader in cloud lifecycle management, today announced that it has integrated its Unified Management Platform™ for use with HP Cloud Services (http:// and has joined its Cloud Services Partner Ecosystem.

Smartscale, a pioneer in cloud infrastructure management and governance, provides companies with a drop dead simple unified platform for Cloud Lifecycle Management. Smartscale users on HP Cloud Services can rapidly deploy, manage and monitor highly scalable public and hybrid cloud environments. Today customers can use Smartscale with the following HP Cloud Services based on OpenStack™ technology:

  • HP Cloud Compute
  • HP Cloud Object Storage
  • HP Cloud Content Delivery Network

Smartscale technology is based on a "Software Defined Cloud" modeling approach that allows HP Cloud Services customers to build their cloud from discreet and reusable software components and the relationships between them. These components and constructs can then be duplicated and aggregated to create complex and robust cloud based systems in a fraction of the time it would take to provision each individual server, rack or pod.

"HP Cloud Services is an important step in the evolution of cloud computing. For the first time, as an ISV, Smartscale was able to integrate HP Cloud Services into our system and it just worked! No code changes, no development effort except for changing the logos. That's huge and it focuses on what users need in a cloud - Simplicity. Smartscale's Cloud Lifecycle platform makes cloud environments dramatically more powerful because it simplifies deployment and updating of cloud resources and makes management of IT workloads easier. Smartscale is excited to bring our unique solution to HP Cloud Services." said Ray Nugent, CEO and founder of Smartscale.

Greater Visibility, On-demand Analyses, Business Critical Data in the Cloud

Smartscale helps CIOs and IT management leverage their cloud investment by offering multiple services delivery options (SaaS, On-premises, and Hybrid), flexible options for deployment, and on-demand analyses of critical cloud-related data across the organization. The platform brings the familiar Network Operations Center (NOC) management paradigm to cloud infrastructure and transforms the cloud by integrating automation and collaboration into a highly scalable cloud management platform. Smartscale helps IT management get the most out of the cloud by providing multi-layered visibility into the entire cloud environment. Visibility into every layer of the cloud allows IT management to better address problems such as rogue cloud use, inefficient deployments, unrealized ROI, back office systems, and most importantly scalability.
