Here at Vordel we're excited to announce that Vordel products can be used to manage virtual machines hosted by service providers such as Terremark, using the vCloud API. This means that an organization can control which employees can create virtual machines, who can reboot them, who can stop them, who can terminate them, all the time keeping an audit trail. We are addressing the chaotic situation which often occurs in organizations whereby IT Management doesn't know how their Cloud-based infrastructure is being used. Vordel allows policies to be put into place such as "only someone with a manager role can reboot a machine" and "instances can only be created during business hours" and "we limit the number of images to this particular number". This saves our customers money and also means they use Cloud-based virtual machines in a managed manner.
Be sure to visit booth 340 at VMworld where our team are demoing the Vordel management of Cloud-based images.
