CloudBolt Manages Cloud Bursting to VMware, AWS, Azure, Openstack

CloudBolt, a start-up based in Campbell, California, has added cloud bursting capabilities to its cloud management platform.

CloudBolt said its tech-agnostic approach to cloud bursting and cloud management enables IT teams to build and rebuild VMs in an automated fashion, eliminating the need for complicated and resource-intensive migration of live VMs from one technology to another. These same CloudBolt blueprints can be deployed and scaled into different environments and technologies, enabling both the initial automated provisioning and cross-technology auto-scaling.

CloudBolt customers can define tiers within services that can be deployed to VMware, Azure, OpenStack, AWS, a physical server, or any of the other technologies CloudBolt supports. Key capabilities include:


  • Automated cloud bursting based on load levels detected on servers
  • Per application-tier scaling configuration, including configurable thresholds, minimums, maximums, and behavior on how to scale when conditions are met
  • Automated scale back
  • Scaling triggered by users, on a schedule, or via CB’s REST API
  • Inter- and intra- technology scaling. For example, the ability to scale from VMware to AWS or from one VMware cluster to another.
  • Support for the 14 resource handler technologies that CloudBolt supports, including seven public clouds, six private virtualization technologies, as well as physical server provisioning
  • Out of the box support for four different load balancers, three configuration management systems, plus common IPAM, change management, SDN, and monitoring systems

“Cloud bursting is the shining promise of hybrid cloud, capable of cutting IT costs by optimizing resource utilization. However, because of the complexity of implementing cloud bursting, these benefits have been within the reach of only the smallest fraction of organizations,” said Jon Mittelhauser, CEO, CloudBolt. “CloudBolt’s cloud management platform takes the complexity out of cloud bursting by making it easier for IT shops to set up and build on top of what they already have, and by enabling them to extend the behavior to include and automate their processes and procedures. With CloudBolt’s cloud bursting, IT shops can own the base and rent the spike.”
