DynamicOps® Cloud Automation Center Physical Resource Manager
A component of DynamicOps Cloud Automation Center, Physical Resource Manager (PRM) provides automated self-service delivery and management of physical servers. The software supports bare-metal provisioning of Windows and Linux operating systems, application software, and hypervisor platforms on x86/x64-based servers. While most competitive products are focused solely on managing virtual resources, with PRM DynamicOps provides a single, natively integrated environment for managing both virtual and physical machines in a shared private and/or public cloud infrastructure. PRM’s multi-tenant security, service definition, automated service delivery capabilities, and cost transparency are built on a common foundation across all Cloud Automation Center products. PRM supports two provisioning models: delegated self-service and administrator-initiated. With the delegated self-service model, a user initiates the provisioning process by selecting from a catalogue of authorized service blueprints. Based on the blueprint’s specifications, PRM selects an appropriate server from resources allocated to the user’s group and provisions the machine according to the policies and process defined in the blueprint. The administrator-initiated model allows the selection of a specific server to which a service blueprint is applied to initiate the provisioning process. Like Virtual Resource Manager, PRM supports multiple tools that can be used for OS and application software deployment:
Platform Tools: Microsoft SCCM, WinPE/WIM Imaging, Linux Kickstart/AutoYast Enterprise Tools: BMC BladeLogic, HP Server Automation Other tools available as a custom service
