GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Morpheus Data announced updates to its unified multi-cloud orchestration platform which will enable customers to develop new applications faster with less administrative overhead on virtually any cloud or infrastructure. News highlights: @MorpheusData provides 150x faster app deployment now on even more #cloud and #devops tools with @Alibaba_Cloud and @Cisco #CiscoACI Tweet this Multi-cloud expansion to Alibaba and AWS GovCloud Network automation and SDN support for Cisco ACI Global search of all connected clouds and infrastructure According to 451 Research, the cloud-enabling technology market will approach $40 billion by 2020, growing at 13% CAGR1. While 59% of organizations have a majority of IT on-premises today, the balance is expected to swing off-premises in the next two years2. “Transformation requires the right underpinning cloud platform,” says William Fellows VP of Research, 451 Research. “Unified offerings like Morpheus reduce tool sprawl and simplify provisioning across an increasingly diverse ecosystem of technologies and suppliers.” The rapid shift to hybrid IT coupled with increasing pressure from development teams creates a challenge for resource constrained IT departments. Morpheus bridges the gap between digital business expectations and IT service delivery through a systematic approach to cloud optimization, governance, automation, and production operations. With these updates, enterprises, governments, and service providers can provide simple self-service app deployment faster than ever before. “Customers often turn to us when other multi-cloud automation projects fail to deliver,” said Brad Parks, VP of Business Development, Morpheus Data. “With Morpheus, they find a breadth of third-party integrations and native capabilities that narrow tools from traditional vendors simply can’t match.” Expanding cloud coverage for new geographies and markets 68% of organizations report they plan on using more than one cloud service, which can lead to tool sprawl if organizations do not standardize management3. This multi-cloud challenge is amplified by the constantly changing cloud provider landscape. One example is Alibaba Cloud, the leading cloud provider in China, and one of the fastest growing public clouds in the world. With the new Morpheus integration into Alibaba, global organizations can standardize all public and private cloud operations to assure compliance and reduce cost. Security and compliance is of particular importance to public sector organizations. AWS GovCloud is an isolated AWS region that allows U.S. government agencies and customers to safely move sensitive workloads into the cloud while addressing regulatory requirements. Now with support for AWS GovCloud, Morpheus customers can eliminate management silos that may have been associated with these specialized accounts. For VMware customers and service providers who want to simplify multi-cloud orchestration and avoid tool lock-in, Morpheus has expanded support for vCloud Director and enhanced performance with VMware vSphere. These integrations enable forward-looking organizations to improve the ROI from existing VMware investments while providing an open path to cloud-native technologies such as containers and serverless computing.
