Jamcracker Cloud Management Platform Updates: Devops

Framework, Migration Planner, Cloud Cost Comparator and

More

Cloud Management Platform - get ready to experience a whole new way of

quickly saving your time to deploy various resources on the cloud – i.e. the

Devops way. Also get a whole new dimension to look at your migration

resources on both public and private clouds. Time and cost are and will always

be major factors in making a purchase decision, compare cost with the cost

comparator feature before deciding on a particular provider.

JDF Framework / Resource Scripts

Organizations are now enabled to launch a variety of resources on various

public cloud provider platforms. How?

JDF Framework aka Jamcracker DevOps framework is a new and easy way of

setting up resources across various public and private clouds. It has become

even more important for jamcracker to support

even more important for Jamcracker to support a framework enabled with

scripts, as the kind of cloud services offered by each provider is myriad in

nature. Instead of scaling the platform to support various resources, it is easy

and efficient way to enable users to run required scripts available within the

platform and launch essential resources on the provider’s end within seconds.

This framework not only complements the existing IaaS features in JSDN for

e.g. Appstacks created using "designer console" but also eliminates the need to

on-board various resources of different public cloud providers on JSDN

platform.

Resource Scripts in JSDN offer a standard resource library to launch resources

such as VMs, VPC, Subnet and also RDS. This framework is built in a manner to

extend its capability to cater to any or all kinds of resources across multiple

public cloud providers. Although the current version of JSDN certifies launching

of resources such as VMs, VPC, Subnet and RDS on AWS Cloud, it can be easily

extended to cater to other providers in the IaaS public cloud arena as well. It is

strongly backed with RBAC control to regulate the privileges available to

different roles in your organization.

migration dashboard

Migration Dashboard

Migration dashboard provides insights into your private cloud usage and cost,

side by side with your public cloud usage and cost. Migration dashboard

enables you to quickly track, analyze and plan your datacenter migration.

private cloud

Private Cloud:

Private Cloud section offers the following widgets.

Resource Configuration Summary

this graph provides birds view to your private

This graph provides birds view to your private cloud. By knowing in-depth

details of your private cloud resources, plan to migrate to Public cloud

accordingly.

Physical Machine count by CPU

This graph details the number Physical Machines based on the CPU for the

selected datacenter. The graph allows you to analyze the available compute

capacity and hence plan the utilization of the same efficiently. The graph

excludes data of the Physical Machines that are suspended.

Data Centre Cost Trend

The data center cost trend graph keeps track of your private cloud cost. Select

the project from the filter that you want to migrate and the graph displays the

cost of that particular project in the private cloud and help plan migration of

the project accordingly.

Note: Make sure to tag the VMs in your private cloud to the respective projects

to get most out of this graph.

VM Count based on CPU

To benefit this graph make sure to tag the VMs in your private cloud to the

respective projects. Filter the graph based on the project tag and analyze the

compute capacity for the selected project. This widget helps you to choose the

CPU configuration in the Public cloud while migrating the project.

VM Distribution based on OS

The graph allows you to know what OS to opt for and plan the cost of the

migration accordingly. Filter the graph based on the project tag and analyze

the OS opted for VMs for the selected project.

Migration Planner

Apply the project tag and plan migration of the projects from your private

cloud by knowing the delta between the resources that are planned for

migration and the resources that are continued to be in the datacenter.

vm distribution based on os

VM Distribution based on OS

The graph allows you to know what OS to opt for and plan the cost of the

migration accordingly. Filter the graph based on the project tag and analyze

the OS opted for VMs for the selected project.

Virtualized host count by CPU

The graph briefs you about the compute capacity of the virtualized hosts that

are running in the selected datacenter. This widget helps you to choose the

CPU configuration in the Public cloud while migrating the project.

Virtualized Host CPU Utilization

The graph helps you to choose the right CPU configuration while migrating a

project based on the actual utilization of the CPU in the private cloud. This

allows you to equally balance the capacity and utilize the resources efficiently.

Virtualized Host Memory Utilization

The graph helps you to choose the right memory configuration while migrating

a project based on the actual utilization of the memory in the private cloud.

This allows you to equally balance the capacity and utilize the resources

efficiently.

Public Cloud:

Public Cloud section offers the following widgets.

Resource Configuration Summary

Resource Configuration Summary graph provides the summary of the

resources, their count and much more for the selected private cloud. Map it

against the resource summary of the private cloud and plan the migration.

Cloud Cost Trend

The graph allows you to analyze the cost of the project before and after the

migration. To get the most out of this graph make sure to tag the VMs in your

public cloud to the respective projects while migrating. Select the project from

the filter that has been migrated from

the filter that has been migrated from the private cloud and the graph displays

the cost of the respective project in the public cloud.

VM count by flavors

The size of the virtual machine affects the pricing. The size also affects the

processing, memory, and storage capacity of the virtual machine. The graph

allows you to analyze the configuration opted in the public cloud for the

migrated project by selecting the project from the tag filter.

Make sure to tag the VMs in your public cloud to the respective projects while

migrating to get maximum benefit out of this graph.

VM distribution based on OS

The graph helps you to analyze the opted OS for the migrated project. Select

the project that has been migrated from the tag filter and compares the OS

configuration before and after migration.

To get the most out of this graph make sure to tag the VMs in your public cloud

to the respective projects, while migrating.

Automating IT Processes with Policy Framework

Organizations can manage and govern their cloud services using the policy

framework offered by JSDN. A set of rules can be defined to handle critical

business processes and automate tasks. The JSDN framework supports both

scheduler driven and event based rules to manage the resources. Scheduler

Driven Policies let customer organizations schedule the execution of various

tasks and actions based on time. For example, they can create a policy to start

a particular server at a particular time daily. This rule executes every day as per

the schedule at the same time. They can also create predefined rules for

executing actions when the infrastructure thresholds deviate from their actual

base numbers. Customers can define VM scale- out policies. Another example

is that a policy can be created to notify the customer when the customer tries

to launch more number of VMs than the configured limit.

Policy Enhancements

additional policy enhancements include

Additional policy enhancements include:

The platform allows configuring, a usage based policy that alerts when

the predefined usage amount is reached. This usage amount can be

configured either for a Service Provider and specific service like AWS

EC2 or Azure Storage. The usage amount is the cumulative usage for

the billing cycle and considers the complete usage for all resources

provisioned either within the platform or directly from the vendor

console

The platform also allows specifying % Variance field that can send out

Alerts when the variance exceeds a predefined % value. So, the

current day’s usage is compared against the previous day, and an

email is sent out if the variance% exceeds the predefined value.

For the usage alerts configured at the customer level the notifications

will be based on the usage for the respective account

1) To configure and send out alerts based on the variance % in usage.

Usage variance % can be predefined for a Service Provider (like AWS) or for a

specific cloud service like AWS EC2. Admins can thus configure the policy to

receive real time alerts when the cumulative

receive real time alerts when the cumulative usage amount or the daily usage

variance % or both, exceed defined limits.

2) Prior to this release, Store Admins would be alerted only based on the usage

of their account, without providing visibility on all the accounts of a store.

Store Admins can now configure the usage policy to receive alerts based on the

consolidated data for all the customers of the store.

An email will be sent to the Store Admin with the breakup displayed for the

individual customer accounts registered in the store. This alert is useful to

track the cloud spend at a store level with insights about the usage at

individual customer accounts.

Note:

No need to define the mandatory symbol as the system will consider zero.

If nothing is defined, then everyday alert will be sent as long as usage

amount/variance % exceeds 0.

If only amount is defined, but no variance, then alert whenever usage

amount is reached.

if only variances defined but no amount

If only variances defined, but no amount is defined then alert whenever

variance % is reached.

Admin Dashboard

Reseller admin can view aggregated analytics pertaining to store,

along with the combined data of all the customers, or for a specific

customer.

Enhanced with the ‘Account wise- Revenue Trend’ widget. This data is

useful to Admins to monitor the cloud revenue pattern for each

IaaS Account under a specific store and take required actions to

enhance the cloud revenue.

The terminology in the widgets can now be changed (as part of the

deployment steps) to indicate ‘Revenue’ or ‘Costs’. This feature is

useful to Admins based on whether they are using this platform as a

Cloud Management Platform or as a Cloud Brokerage Solution.

Lastly, few widgets in the Admin Dashboard has now been enhanced

to display the data in different chart types.

Cost Comparator

purchase decision fundamentally relies

Purchase decision fundamentally relies on one major factor i.e. Price. With

JSDN, various IaaS vendors’ offerings in terms of cost can be made available to

the customers of the store. The store now has the ability of comparing

different IaaS provider offerings based on the cost incurred for the

same/similar type of VM.

With Cost Comparator, users of the store will be able to choose the desired VM

configuration and instantly get a cost comparison of various public providers’

offerings matching or nearly matching the selection criteria. The configuration

chosen by the user shall be matched to get the closest combination from

various vendors and the search results fetched are showcased to the end

customer. This comparison shall ensure to aid in the decision making for

choosing a desired vendor.

Microsoft Tier 2 import of users and subscriptions

2-Tier Partner and their Resellers can now import all customers from Partner

Center to JSDN using the bulk import functionality.

In each store owned by a Reseller, only the customers of that Reseller

and the subscriptions purchased by the customer through that

Reseller will be imported.

for each customer the csp saas services that they

For each customer, the CSP SaaS services that they have purchased

(supported in JSDN) will be assigned to the customer organization and

billing for those subscriptions will now be handled through JSDN.

Users of the customer organization will also be added in JSDN and the

subscriptions will be assigned to the respective users.

Last but not the least JSDN 7.12.5 is now certified with vCenter 6.0
