Self-Service IT and Hybrid Cloud Management - Morpheus Data

Self-service provisioning means no more waiting on IT

Self-Service IT - Provision services into any cloud

Provision services into virtually
any private or public cloud

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 self-service IT catalog

Customize your self-service IT catalog with approved app layouts

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, security policies, and more.

Different users have different needs… Keep them all happy


Meet the ‘easy button’ for IT

Some users just need simple point and click provisioning with very few options. No fuss and no friction.

Admins use the designer to decide exactly what information to collect from the form.

Catalog items can be any Morpheus instance. We’ll be adding support for Applications and Operational Workflows soon for true XaaS.

Morpheus GUI for Self-Service IT

A powerful yet elegant GUI

The classic interface meets a range of cloud provisioning demands from programmer to power user. All features and options can be exposed or hidden based on role.

  • Select clouds, plans, and infrastructure
  • Configure IP, DNS, load balancers, etc.
  • Attach automation workflows
  • Set logging, monitoring, and backup
  • Implement lifecycle policies

Full API and CLI for Developer focused self-service IT

Maximum velocity

Call from your CI/CD pipeline to build, destroy, and promote for test/dev, QA, and prod.

The API is a RESTful HTTP interface and mirrors everything in the GUI to manipulate resources and automate provisioning within your pipeline.

The CLI is a ruby gem with 800 commands that provides the MORPHEUS executable and makes requests to the API.

Self-service IT with Morpheus plus ServiceNow

Integrate with ServiceNow

Enable instances and applications to be ordered inside ServiceNow.

This simplifies ServiceNow administration by letting Morpheus be the single source of cloud orchestration.

Morpheus will maintain CMDB records plus integrates with approvals and incident management.

Self-service IT extended to Infrastructure-as-Code

Be one of the cool kids

Blueprints are one way that companies can adopt Infrastructure-as-Code. In addition to the Morpheus DSL we support Terraform, CloudFormation, ARM, K8 Spec, and HELM. We also have a Terraform Provider.

Morpheus and Terraform are complimentary technologies which together can increase efficiency and simplify automation across cloud environments.

Provision complex hybrid cloud applications
with the click of a button or a single line of code

Morpheus blueprint builder for self-service IT

Combine instances into apps

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.

Simplify Infrastructure-as-Code

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.

Extend third-party IaC templates

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.
