Turbocharge Your Multi-Cloud Operations with Workload Automation

Cloud and virtual resources are already critical to day-to-day operations and cloud adoption continues to rise. Managing these systems can be time-consuming and expensive. For example, it’s common for cloud and virtual systems to continue to run long after they’re needed, driving up costs. Other jobs can take up resources even when they aren’t capable of completing successfully, causing workload bottlenecks that impact business.

With ActiveBatch, users can integrate and automate workloads across multiple platforms from a single point of control.

Cloud Platform/Virtual Machine Provider Integrations

ActiveBatch offers tools and features to help IT teams easily and reliably manage cloud-based workflows and resources across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments. Cloud service providers supported by ActiveBatch include:

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2

  • Microsoft Azure

  • Hyper-V

  • VMware

  • And more…

Plus, the ActiveBatch Service Library allows users to connect  to API endpoints in minutes, allowing for no-code tie-ins with providers like Google Cloud, Rackspace, or other SaaS/PaaS cloud management platforms.

Using ActiveBatch Intelligence for Multi-Cloud Cost Management

Smart Queue Dynamically Scales Virtual and Cloud Resources

ActiveBatch offers flexible, scalable tools that help IT monitor and manage virtual machines and private- and public-cloud resources. For example, Smart Queue dynamically scales machine resources up or down based on real-time demands and historical analyses. By enabling Smart Queue, IT teams can optimize their virtual and cloud environments while minimizing cloud costs. Smart Queue's emphasis on cost management ensures IT maximizes its ROI on its cloud infrastructure.

Machine Learning Powers Heuristic Queue Allocation for Resource Optimization

ActiveBatch Heuristic Queue Allocation (HQA) allows for seamless machine scalability by bringing the power of machine learning to workload automation. HQA analyzes historical instance data and predicts the optimal allocation of systems across on-prem, private-cloud, and public-cloud resources. By optimizing how jobs are placed in a hybrid IT environment, HQA improves job performance and can sharply reduce slack time. This maximizes resource usage while minimizing the costs associated with cloud computing.

Eliminate Job Placement Guesswork

As IT environments scale, it becomes ineffective and time-consuming for IT to manually search for machines capable of completing certain jobs. With ActiveBatch Dynamic Queue Characteristics, users can instruct ActiveBatch to evaluate multiple machines before jobs are sent to run. Machines can be evaluated at run time for characteristics like available disk space, registry values, or the presence of an active service. No matter how many servers an IT team is managing, ActiveBatch will quickly and reliably submit each job to the optimal machine depending on its needs.

Improved Insight for Improved DevOps

ActiveBatch does more than offer orchestration and provisioning for hybrid cloud environments. ActiveBatch improves DevOps with hundreds of no-code integrations with data center management tools, BI and ERP tools, and more. With ActiveBatch, developers have a single location to build and automate all enterprise applications, cloud deployments, and IT services. At the same time, operators have better control over IT ops with a single pane of glass for day-to-day IT operations management.

Plus, dozens of real-time views minimize time-to-insight and reveal problems faster. IT admins and decision makers can rest easy, knowing their cloud strategy and multi-cloud environments are scaling smoothly, and their business end users stay online.

Self-Service Portals Empower End Users to Take On the Cloud

The ActiveBatch Self-Service Portal keeps IT in control while empowering business users with safe, direct access to cloud solutions. Here's how:

  • IT builds low-code workflows that connect to one or more cloud providers

  • IT provides business users with self-service access to provision machines to provided specs

  • Business triggers workflows as needed, without relying on the enterprise IT team

  • ActiveBatch controls the complete lifecycle from development to provisioning to complete audit trails and log files

Amazon Web Services Marketplace Templates

ActiveBatch’s AWS Marketplace AMIs, available for instant use, allow for environment scaling without the need for software installs or machine upkeep, and without costly and time-consuming procurement for on-premises IT infrastructure.

Combining ActiveBatch’s powerful automation capabilities and flexible framework with Amazon’s highly reliable, elastic cloud, IT teams can quickly adapt to changing business needs at any scale.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hybrid refers to IT environments that include on-premises and cloud-based systems, applications, or resources. Hybrid management refers to the management of processes and data across a hybrid environment. See how ActiveBatch can simplify hybrid environments.

Cloud platforms aren’t designed to easily integrate with on-premises data centers. This makes it difficult to manage a hybrid cloud environment. Cross-platform workload automation solutions make it easy to integrate multiple cloud vendors, on-prem data centers, and much more. This enables users to automate the management of virtual machines to control costs, and to standardize compliance, security, and governance across environments. See what you can accomplish with ActiveBatch.

Yes, ActiveBatch integrates with AWS EC2, Microsoft Azure, Informatica Cloud, and more. Manage cloud resources to match dynamic compute demands, automate key tasks including provisioning/de-provisioning cloud-based servers. Develop resilient, end-to-end processes across cloud-based and on-prem environments. Explore ActiveBatch’s integration capabilities.

Yes, ActiveBatch enables users to load and execute APIs (WSDLs and SOAP, RESTful services, .NET assemblies, stored procedures, and command lines) without custom scripts. Users can then turn those APIs into repeatable actions that can be seamlessly integrated into end-to-end processes. Explore ActiveBatch’s API capabilities.
