CloudForms starts with a web-based self-service catalog and extends to cover the complete life-cycle, operational, resource, and financial management of the deployed services―all within the same system.
CloudForms scans and discovers existing resources and their relationships, letting it easily manage current environments. CloudForms then continuously monitors those resources and scans for new ones, giving you exceptional visibility into the operations of the environment.
CloudForms is designed for the rigors of enterprise environments. It’s delivered as a virtual appliance, so you can deploy it quickly, bringing existing environments under management within hours. You can integrate data and resources with third-party systems to compose a comprehensive management solution. And CloudForms can scale both horizontally and vertically, with highly available data stores and services.
