CloudBolt Cloud Management Hits Oracle Cloud Marketplace

November 10, 2015

Oracle users got a new boost to cloud management operations recently: the CloudBolt system from CloudBolt Software—a Gold-level member of the Oracle Partner Network—made its arrival on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace. With CloudBolt, users get access to several useful cloud management tools all from one central location, making it easier to keep track of this increasingly vital platform.

With CloudBolt, users can manage cloud environments from several vendors at once, all from the same access point. Oracle's cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provides a host of tools that help companies drive any level of workload through the system, including both elastic computing and storage options.

According to CloudBolt's CEO, Jon Mittelhauser, CloudBolt gives users a way to get Oracle's extensive lineup of services out into play more rapidly to the end user market. Before, businesses might have been left with legacy techniques to bring in software virtualization. Now, CloudBolt users can get some help moving to Oracle Cloud Platform. That makes that a more viable jump for companies, who need to expend fewer resources in the care and feeding of such systems. As Mittelhauser put it, “CloudBolt’s participation in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace further extends our commitment to the Oracle community and enables customers to easily reap the benefits of our cloud management platform. We look forward to leveraging the power of the Oracle Cloud to help us achieve our business goals.”

Streamlining management is seldom a bad move, particularly if the service levels still remain tolerably high. This might be particularly true when it comes to virtualization; the whole point of virtualization is to cut back on costs while maintaining service, getting the legacy materials—both hardware and software—out of the picture and instead focusing on systems that can be accessed remotely by desktops or mobile devices. But the service level needs to be properly maintained in order for it to get anywhere.

CloudBolt's new move may well prove a big help there, and drive some interested parties into making a few simple switches that result in lower management costs and better return on investment. It should be fairly brisk business ahead for CloudBolt, which is offering a good way to dial down expenses in a price-sensitive environment.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
