Cloud Lifecycle Management

Your cloud management platform to drive agility, ensure compliance, and manage complexity

Cloud Lifecycle Management is a cloud management platform that accelerates innovation through automated provisioning, governance, and management of secure cloud services. It gives users self-service access to click and deploy simple VMs or full application stacks across multiple cloud environments.

Scalable, multi-tenant, flexible, and enterprise ready

  • Deploy full application stacks quickly to keep innovation flowing
  • Direct cloud service placement based on business or technical policies
  • Apply compliance checks, then automate remediation to stay secure
  • Integrate with DevOps tools and processes for continuous delivery of new cloud services
  • Avoid service API lock-in and maintain choice across any platform

Remove obstacles to accelerate application development and delivery

Application deployment with the developer in mind.


Spend more time innovating and less time setting up and configuring infrastructure and applications. Cloud Lifecycle Management helps you get the resources you need quickly.

  • Deploy full stack applications with the push of a button
  • Easily grab the latest build from Jenkins for development or testing
  • Deploy consistent stacks to development, test, QA, and production environments
  • Intelligently place services according to policies across private and public clouds
  • Deploy and manage consistent and compliant cloud services with sophisticated blueprint technology

Govern your cloud without disrupting innovation.


You need flexibility to adapt and enable innovation, but you also need to avoid exposure to increased security risk, performance risk, and budgetary risk. The key is to automate processes that give you visibility yet don't create obstacles to speed.

  • Streamline tracking of changes and configurations through integration with your service management processes
  • Give users upfront visibility into the cost of their cloud service choices
  • Report on usage and then manage to budget
  • Monitor performance of cloud services to prevent downtime
  • Separate departments or users with fine-grained multi-tenancy and role-based access control

Automate threat response and accelerate audits.

Security & Compliance

Let the move to cloud be a catalyst for change. Implement the tools and processes necessary to automate and reduce security threats while also accelerating and improving compliance with regulatory policies.

  • Assign compliance policies to cloud services at deployment time
  • Integrate vulnerability scanning tools to enable automated patching and remediation
  • Report compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI-DSS, HIPAA
  • Reduce manual effort and accelerate audit response time
