As IT organizations continue to evolve their environments with virtualized servers and the cloud, many are keenly aware of the risks of vendor lock-in. Your cloud environment should be open and flexible to adapt to business needs as they change. This latest certification is testament to our view that a cloud management platform should support publicly exposed APIs to facilitate integration with other third-party products. When building cloud services, it is critical to design for workload portability across public and private cloud.

Avoid the pain of vendor lock-in to your current-future investments through an open, heterogeneous, extensible platform. Then take the next steps of optimizing your cloud management capabilities, for an informed, transparent IT service delivery. By providing performance management, availability monitoring and cloud security over a foundation of modular growth.
