Edmunds selected BladeLogic's software for its new data center
Data center automation software provider BladeLogic announced that automotive information provider Edmunds has selected BladeLogic's suite of data center automation software solutions to automate the provisioning and management of all servers in its new data center.
Before selecting BladeLogic, Edmunds used various server management software tools that were not well integrated and required highly specialized skills and extensive scripting. Edmunds is currently undergoing a major data center relocation project that will be completed later this year, and as a result, has launched a competitive evaluation of the leading data center automation solutions to help expedite the relocation process.
After carefully evaluating the available tools in the marketplace, Edmunds selected BladeLogic's data center automation software as it provided the most comprehensive and scalable solution to rapidly provision and manage all of its servers as well as enable the automation of other key management processes including configuration management, compliance assurance and application release management.
"The efficiency of Edmunds' new data center will be critical in ensuring that all four of its Web sites are fully operational and able to quickly respond to the changing needs of the business and its customers," says Dev Ittycheria, president and CEO BladeLogic. "By selecting BladeLogic, Edmunds has a comprehensive data center automation solution that will assure that its new data center is turned up quickly and that its server and application environments are managed consistently and efficiently."
