Today we are excited to showcase you our new VMware Brownfield feature. If you have VMs running in your pre-existing vSphere environment and you want them to be moved under the control of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, now you can easily import them using an automated process. This simple automation saves you a ton of time and resource so you can focus on delivering more innovative cloud services. A simple, 5-Step Wizard within Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator’s admin control panel will guide you through the import, while preserving your customer’s data and network settings, such as IP and MAC addresses.
What can you do with this?
When importing a vSphere VM, service providers have the opportunity to configure CPU, RAM and disk to match the existing VMs to the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator product catalog. In addition, service providers can edit the network for the imported version of the VM and specify an IP address or to automatically assign a new one to its vNIC. At any point of the Wizard, should resource requirements be different from the options available within Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, service providers can resolve the mismatch upon import. This can be done easily and quickly through the Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator admin control panel.
For service providers wanting to benefit from Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator, they now can easily migrate existing workloads on their existing VMware estates (vSphere) to Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator management.
