Leveraging Application Deployment Automation in the Cloud

Event Details: July 16, 2014 at 1:00 PM Eastern

Faster time to deployment is a vital component of cloud computing, regardless of what cloud platforms you are using. Automating the deployment of your applications can significantly speed up launch time and simplify management.

Dell Cloud Manager allows you to easily create reusable application blueprints. Design and configure an application stack once, then save for future use. Any authorized user can leverage the blueprint as a ready-made template, or simply deploy to the cloud platform of their choice at the click of a button. Using Chef or Puppet? We integrate with both - or you can use our built-in service catalog.

Join us for this informative session where you will learn how your organization can benefit from leveraging the cloud for application delivery.
