Innovate or Die? Three Ways to Cloud Enablement

At Cloud Field Day last month, Ned Bellavance got to thinking about how companies approach cloud enablement. After seeing a variety of approaches, he highlights three ways for companies to succeed at this difficult task.

Jeff Wilson came to Cloud Field Day last month, his first Field Day event since 2015. In this piece, he shares his thoughts on Morpheus Data. Overall he came away impressed, especially with their focus on operations. They offer what Jeff calls “well-articulated & rational glue” to take the pain out or managing a stack of heterogenous infrastructure whether it’s on-premises, in one cloud, or several clouds.


Morpheus Data brings the glue to multi-cloud management

Tim Crawford got to hear from Morpheus Data at Cloud Field Day earlier this month. He thinks they offer an interesting abstraction layer for cloud services that enables unified management and visibility without losing features. This is a great start, but Tim is interested if going forward the company will target a wide range of supported services, or instead focus on a subset with rich features.

Cloud Field Day 3; Day 1 – That One Thing…

With Cloud Field Day over delegate Chris Porter takes a look back at day one of the event. This saw presentations from Morpheus Data, Delphix, and Oracle. Morpheus shows how they create an abstration layer for cloud services while still retaining unique features to particular services. Delphix showed how they can speed up the cycle of getting database backups to test/dev systems. Finally, Oracle gave a deep dive into their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Chris Evans will be joining our delegates at Cloud Field Day next week. Morpheus Data will be presenting, and Chris is looking forward to digging into their platform. They offer an end-to-end management and deployment of applications in a DevOps model, including component discovery, templates and policy. He’s interested in learning how the company will overcome some of the inherent issues that come up when adding in another abstraction layer to applications.


CFD3 Prep Post: Morpheus Data

Justin Warren has a very important question for Morpheus Data, what is a “unified multi-cloud orchestration tool”? He’ll get a chance to ask during their Cloud Field Day presentation next month. In his preview post, he looks at how the company purports to be an orchestrator of other familiar automation tools like Chef, Puppet, and Ansible. Morpheus Data says this will save organizations time and money, a claim Justin has heard many times before. He’s looking forward to a deep dive for some details.
