After being popularized and exploding onto the IT scene almost a decade ago, the usage and management of containers is still evolving as new and more efficient organization strategies and tools are developed.
How much are utilizing the cloud to support your business initiatives? Cloud environments offer immense benefit, especially as hybrid workforces gain traction. However, they also create unique challenges that legacy software, hardware and strategies are ill-equipped to handle.
How familiar are you with observability? The concept has gained traction as enterprises digitally transform their IT environments and embrace the cloud. For many companies, observability offers the chance to utilize collected data to improve user experience, reduce downtime, detect other issues that could negatively impact business, and more.
Today’s IT teams face many challenges, especially as the IT infrastructure continues to become more complicated. Between the high standards for application performance and staying on top of rapidly evolving security threats, IT teams wear many hats, which are only growing more numerous and heavier as time goes on.
So, what is the key? In one word – Morpheus. In Greco-Roman mythology, Morpheus is one of the sons of Hypnos, the god of sleep and dreams. In the era of the hybrid cloud in which business never sleeps, there is a new Morpheus—Morpheus Data. Morpheus Data is a next-generation hybrid cloud management and application infrastructure automation engine. It’s a completely agnostic cloud management platform which really means it provides you the tools to get internal IT over the finish line in your quest to attain greater agility, control, efficiency and most of all speed across your entire IT estate.
The Digital Transformations that the world has undergone has led to an insatiable appetite for applications and built a robust reliance on them. This reliance on apps and infrastructure has been greatly magnified this past year by the absence of physical face to face contact stemming from remote work strategies. Because your business is dependent on applications, the performance of your business is tied to the performance levels of your applications. Now compound this with the great cloud migration, and it becomes challenging to discern what is truly happening out there with your apps and the cloud(s) in which they reside. These are but some of the reasons why your enterprise needs a Cloud and Application Monitoring solution that is built with the future in mind. Below are some of the benefits you can derive from a premier APM solution, such as Dynatrace.
Morpheus Data recently unveiled the next version of its hybrid cloud management platform. While already recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Management Platforms, this new release further cements its place on the list.
In addition to improving all the great day-2 functionality that comes built-in, Morpheus made improvements in some key areas of their hybrid cloud management platform. Improving the catalog view with personas is a big one. The ability to tailor a user’s view can really improve the experience. For example, you don’t want non-technical folks overwhelmed with too many options. This allows your team to customize the catalog to each user’s job.
In an era of transformation, speed and agility of application infrastructure is key. Unfortunately, it can take IT weeks to deliver new application stacks when requested because of manual hand-offs across a fragmented set of ‘software-definable’ technologies on-premises. This inefficiency leads teams to bypass IT in favor of public cloud application services which raises cloud costs and opens security holes.

In today’s hyper competitive global economy, companies are constantly racing to convert ideas into value faster than their competition. As a result, IT is being asked to transform the data center infrastructure into a more fluid, flexible fabric that can perpetually evolve and adapt to new demands and opportunities. IT is expected to create and deliver new applications and services for mobile, social, and cloud technologies—and do so with shorter development cycles. On top of that, IT must still manage the traditional applications, data silos, and hardware while lowering the costs to do so. To say that today’s IT department has a full plate of responsibility is an understatement. The bar has indeed been set high today.
