What do you think of Cloudify?

Cloudify is an application that allows users to control the full lifecycle of distributed applications. Based on TOSCA – an open specification for defining an application's topology, lifecycle workflows and lifecycle events – Cloudify can manage complex, distributed applications across both public and private clouds (multi-cloud and hybrid), including containerized applications and SDN. At Risk Focus, we're often engaged by enterprise customers to build a cloud management layer that allows our clients to integrate their cloud services with existing services and controls. We use Cloudify in three common use cases: In highly regulated industries (e.g., capital markets firms) where the organization has existing controls that need to be implemented across all new environments,...

What is most valuable?

The TOSCA model. It allows modeling the application rather than the automation. It is a machine-readable representation of the application and its infrastructure, which can be used for other things too, not just for the orchestration (e.g. enterprise architecture big picture, who connects to whom). Cloudify also provides the infrastructure-as-code, as well as... more»

What do you think of Cloudify?

Valuable Features: It is easy to follow the template. • Improvements to My Organization: It's easy to create a cloud server, such as Linux with JBoss or WebSphere, which is good for continuous deployment. • Room for Improvement: More of the debug functionality is needed; hopefully, we can pause during the server building process. • Use of Solution: I have used this solution for three months. • Stability Issues: There were no stability issues. • Previous Solutions: We were not using any other solution before. • Initial Setup: Another team was responsible for the setup in the low-level environment. • Other Advice: You should be familiar with more testing procedures.

What do you think of Cloudify?

Primary Use Case: We configured our application using Cloudify in our production environment. We deployed the REST application with Tomcat and configured it with Cloudify auto-scaling and load balancing configuration.  • Improvements to My Organization: I think about the containers (Docker). We can quickly create a local cloud with Kubernetes, a global deployable format (container), good resource utilization, and open source.  • Valuable Features: Auto-scaling Load balancing Creating a local cloud. I used the 2.x version and did not use the 3.x version. • Room for Improvement: Unlike the Docker environment, Cloudify takes time for configuration and its learning curve. • Use of Solution: One to three years.
