Multi-Cloud Workload Provisioning, Governance and Auditability Management

Vnomic MetaDirector is an expert system that captures the technical documentation, best practices and human experts knowledge using the power of modeling and software defined flexibility to solve Multi-Cloud Workload management complexities.

Vnomic MetaDirector uses reasoning through bodies of application and infrastructure technical documentation on provisioning, performance, security, governance & compliance requirements to compute the best possible solution; and provisions the workload and cloud infrastructure while achieving the security, governance and compliance desired state.

The growing sophistication and deployment complexity of Digital Transformation workloads means that traditional approaches to workload deployment, governance and auditability management no longer meet business expectations.


Business Problem

In a competitive world, customers consume technology and companies must deploy applications on Multi-Clouds quickly, then rapidly and safely add or remove resources from already running applications to meet the demands of users, based on service level requirements, time scheduling and cost factors, while adhering to the security and governance requirements.

HANA Based solutions including SAP BW on HANA landscapes possess all the attributes of complex and dynamic applications that can benefit from an Expert System delivery and governance on Multi-Clouds infrastructures.  These delivery and governance capabilities include supporting distributed users, 24/7 global availability, highly variable performance and scale demands, virtual and physical resource requirements, various types of compute, storage, network as well as changing security and governance requirements.

The solution

Vnomic MetaDirector is an expert system that computes the application and cloud infrastructure provisioning, governance and auditability requirements and delivers the resulting workload landscape on virtual, bare-metal or container-based systems, reducing time to value for a workload landscapes provisioning from months to hours, while meeting all the governance and auditability requirements.  Vnomic MetaDirector captures best practices knowledge for all workload building blocks including firewall, load-balancers, compute, network, storage, backup, high availability and disaster recovery to compute and provision a complete workload landscape that meets the performance, governance and auditability requirements on Multi-Clouds.

Vnomic MetaDirector includes modeling framework that concisely expresses application components, best practices, their dependencies and inter-relationships and infrastructure requirements, as application building blocks.  Vnomic Service Designer allows service architects to snap together building blocks into error-free Application Service Models which describe sophisticated application landscapes, independent of infrastructure.  Policies are used to expose and configure customization points and Vnomic Desired State Controller interprets these Application Service Models as holistic desired state specifications and automatically computes a concrete topology and a correctly ordered sequence of infrastructure operations to provision compute, network, storage, firewall, load balancers, backup, high availability and disaster recovery resources, with deployment operations to materialize software components and initialize their state, and configuration operations to ensure infrastructure, software components, and services are able to operate correctly while meeting the governance and auditability requirements.

Customer benefits:

Leveraging the power of Vnomic MetaDirector customers can deploy a complete workload landscape in hours with no manual errors on Multi-Clouds.  Vnomic effectively removes the traditional semantic gap between application requirements and Multi-Cloud infrastructure implementation which results in error free deployment and operational control of dynamic applications and the following benefits;

  • Faster deployment and change velocity for sophisticated application landscapes
  • Complex error-prone processes are eliminated
  • Infrastructure behavior is aligned with the application requirements
  • Security and compliance are continuously assured
