Self-service provisioning is another way of describing on-demand, elastic access to IT resources and is a defining facet of cloud computing and DevOps. It uses automation and orchestration to eliminate the manual handoffs that typically slow down digital transformation projects.
A key aspect of self-service provisioning is the ability to request appropriate services from a centralized catalog of curated items using a variety of interfaces based on user and organizational preference.
The Morpheus instance catalog provides on-demand delivery of OS’s, databases, web servers, and more including options for bare metal, VM, containers, and cloud-native items or PaaS services.
Layouts can range from a single machine to complex clusters complete with auto-scale rules and primary/secondary node dependencies.
Morpheus ships with 50 common applications but most customers use the library builder to add their own approved virtual images.
An instance can have multiple layouts so a single service could have options for private or public cloud.
Run workflows for configuration management, embed security policies, and more as part of fully automated self-service provisioning.
Mix and match technology types in multi-tier structures that include boot order, service checks, and dependencies.
A single blueprint can be provisioned into any cloud to simplify hybrid cloud deployments.
Easily create blueprints in the graphical builder or API/CLI then export as YAML or JSON for sharing and portability. Use blueprints as part of your DevOps pipelines including triggering from Jenkins and deploying code artifacts.
Morpheus makes on-premises infrastructure-as-code as simple as public clouds with a single template and provider plus bridges the painful gap between IaC and application configuration.
Wrap Morpheus governance and control around Terraform, AWS CloudFormation, Microsoft ARM, Kubernetes Spec, or HELM.
Import templates or reference Git repos for versioning. Morpheus will parse templates and present input fields for users at provision time.
