BMC Helix Discovery Scalability

Doug Hynes
Manager, Solutions Engineering at Fusion
With BMC, you're allowed to deploy in an on-premise solution, or even a cloud-based solution, with as many as are necessary. Therefore, being able to scale up or scale down, depending on the size of your environment or migration of environments, is very flexible. Let's say that you started with one data center, and you have outgrown it, or maybe you're going from data center to a fledgling cloud deployment. Being able to scale up across those is really the key factor of the way BMC designed the Discovery tool. Because it comes in a scanning tool and a consolidation tool, you can put as many scanning out as you need, and if there are maybe specific firewall rules and you need to scale up to yet another system, you needed to scale out over the WAN to another data center, or to cloud, you have that ability. It's not going to introduce a large hindrance into your environment or to your admins to be able to support it. View full review »
