Jamcracker Launches JSDN 7.0 to Enable Hybrid Cloud Services Brokering

Jamcracker, the Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) enablement company, today announced the release of the Jamcracker Services Delivery Network (JSDN) 7.0, enabling enterprise service providers and IT organizations to offer IT as a Service (ITaaS). ITaaS enables IT organizations to act as agile service providers, focusing on meeting the needs and outcomes required by lines of businesses (LOB).

“As IT as a Service becomes the standard business and operations model, enterprises will require the ability to manage the supply chain, including infrastructure services and application services delivery,” said Paul Burns, president, Neovise. “With the ability to configure, manage, and bill IaaS services from multiple vendors with a seamless user experience, Jamcracker is ideally suited to change the way we adopt cloud services.”

Advanced IaaS and Billing Management

With JSDN 7.0, users can now compare, customize, provision, launch and manage virtualized resources – across multiple providers – with a few clicks. The enhanced billing engine aggregates and tracks metered multi-cloud usage in real-time. Significant enhancements include:

  • New and improved catalog: Allows any cloud service to be easily integrated into a master services catalog. The catalog enables bundling of public, private and hybrid service offerings and provides each end-user with a self-service order fulfillment interface.
  • Unified billing for all cloud services: JSDN integrates with Amazon and Rackspace as well as OpenStack and VMware based providers to obtain real-time metered usage data and consolidate tracking across multiple IaaS providers. The JSDN billing module also supports subscription, one-time and tiered-usage pricing models used by SaaS, PaaS and other types of public or private cloud providers.
  • Hybrid cloud management console: IT users can compare, order, manage, access and consolidate billing across numerous compute providers including Amazon Web Services and Rackspace, as well as providers based on OpenStack, VMware and other technology stacks.
  • Open Integration Framework: Offers native integration with OpenStack APIs, providing the foundation for an abstraction layer that normalizes interfaces across disparate IaaS providers and API services.
  • Big Data Analytics Framework: Based on Hadoop, this framework enables billing, chargeback and other related ITaaS business analysis functions across multiple cloud services.

“JSDN 7.0 enables customers to deploy both internal and external CSB solutions, which include multi-vendor cloud management features, usage billing and analytics, and comprehensive governance enforcement,” said Mahendra Soneji, VP of product management, Jamcracker. “This release will help streamline IT operations for enterprises and increase revenue streams for CSB operators, ultimately leading to an ITaaS revolution.”
