ZeroStack Offers Migration Path From VMware Lab Manager
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 11, 2017 -- ZeroStack, Inc. today announced that its Intelligent Private Cloud platform offers a smooth migration path from VMware Lab Manager as customers transition from that end-of-life product. Lab Manager is a legacy dev/test product that requires complex integration and maintenance, and VMware’s suggested vCloud Director takes 30 days to implement properly and is primarily intended for large enterprises. Instead, DevOps and QA departments can move to the ZeroStack cloud platform to implement a full-featured dev/test environment that can be deployed in 30 minutes and takes development from concept to production with self-service provisioning.
As part of the ZeroStack platform, there are eight key categories of Open Application Ecosystem tools that eliminate vendor lock-in: NoSQL and SQL databases, cloud management platforms, Big Data tools, operating systems, container and orchestration tools, CI/CD tools, and modern application and server stacks. Teams can upload their own application tools and complex application stacks using templates.
"Dev/test and QA departments need a tool like Lab Manager, but now they must find another solution,” said Kamesh Pemmaraju, vice president of Product Management at ZeroStack. “We offer a simple, easily deployable solution that puts dev/test and QA departments in control. We welcome Lab Manager users to the next-generation ZeroStack cloud platform.”
ZeroStack uses intelligent software to deliver a self-driving, fully integrated private cloud platform that offers the agility and simplicity of public cloud at a fraction of the cost, along with the control, security, and performance of a private cloud. We leverage advances in distributed computing, computer science and AI to self-manage your on-premises cloud coupled with a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) portal to handle management and operations with complete health monitoring and predictive analytics. Founded by senior engineers from VMware and Google, the company is funded by Formation 8 and Foundation Capital, and is based in Mountain View, California.
