Kubernetes: Hybrid File Transfer
Configure and deploy integrations within Pods. Automate secure file transfers of data between on-prem, private, and public cloud platforms and applications. Trigger transfers in real-time based on system events. Break down data silos. This solution is used to pre-configure Stonebranch Universal Agents to work with Kubernetes. You may configure any number of agents with this solution. Configured agents are used for secure file transfers between any solutions running on Red Hat OpenShift and any platforms or applications that are not. This includes moving data between the mainframe and the cloud in a hybrid IT environment.This product is available as a certified operator from the Red Hat Marketplace. For ease of access, you may alternatively download the solution directly from the Red Hat OpenShift console. There is a free trial available, so go ahead and take it out for a spin. Key Features: Hybrid file transfer for OpenShift: Automate the transfer of data back and forth between your mainframe, on-prem servers, cloud storage, virtual servers, and any application running on OpenShift. High security for internal and external file transfers: Battle-tested encryption ensures files are secure across both internal transfers and transfers with external third-party applications and platforms. Real-time file transfers with event-based triggers: With event-driven automation technology, you will achieve real-time automation across your entire hybrid IT environment. Event-based triggers include file monitors, email monitors, application monitors, and many more. Of course, you may also use time-based triggers. Real-time monitoring and auditing: Real-time monitoring and auditing of the entire file transfer process and centralized logging of all activities make the movement of data easy to track and virtually audit-proof. Automate and schedule workloads: Use a visual drag-and-drop workflow editor to automate and schedule jobs/workloads across any application and platform. Easily combine the power of the Stonebranch Universal Controller (UC) with Universal Agents and Red Hat OpenShift Pods. The benefits of using UC to schedule jobs/workloads for an application deployed on OpenShift include highly reduced resource consumption, scalability and performance, fast deployment, and testing. Integrate OpenShift with any other applications or platforms: By running a Universal Agent within an OpenShift Pod, you are able to take advantage of the many integrations that run through the Stonebranch platform. This means you can connect with a variety of applications and platforms that span categories like DevOps, Big Data, ERP, CRM, Infrastructure, and other business applications. Example Use Cases: Transfer files from the mainframe to all started OpenShift Pods related to an application. Transfer files from an application in OpenShift to an application within the internal IT landscape, e.g., SAP business warehouse. Transfer a file from any cloud storage to all OpenShift Pods related to an app (and vice versa). Trigger a file transfer from a third-party web app located in an OpenPaaS landscape. How does it work? Any file transfer can be triggered by calling the REST API of the UC. Essentially, you can start a file transfer workflow from any application, independent of whether it runs on a (virtual) server, mainframe, or in a Pod. Once a Pod is started, the sidecar container is also started, and the Universal Agent of the sidecar container automatically registers to a UC agent cluster specific for the application. For each OpenShift application, one UC agent cluster is created. As soon as the Universal Agent of the sidecar container is assigned to the related UC agent cluster, all related Pods are able to send and receive files from any other Universal Agent installed on a server, either on the mainframe or agentless from any cloud storage.
UAC Solution Pack: Dynamic Container File Monitoring and File Transfer
This integration and associated task templates provide a dynamic file monitoring and file transfer solution for containerized applications running in any container-management solution such as Red Hat OpenShift or Kubernetes. Key Features: Dynamically create and launch an agent file monitor trigger each time specific containers are started. Transfer files from the containers. Clean up agent file monitor triggers each time specific containers are stopped.
UAC Utility: File Compression
File compression is a way to reduce overall file size without losing any of the primary data to make large files more manageable. This integration provides the capability to compress and decompress a file, with or without password encryption.Key Features:This Universal Extension provides the following main features: ActionsCompress file or directories.Decompress zip files with files or directories.OtherSupport for AES-256 password encryption for files.Support for 7-Zip (Windows/Linux) and p7zip (Linux)Support for Embedded (Linux)What's New V1.2.0New Embedded Archiver Tool permits users to zip/unzip not only files but whole directories. It is using Python Standard Library and not a 3rd party executable like 7Zip is needed. It is very useful for cases that the Agent is installed in container (and thus having access to a very small set of binaries) and the user of the platform does not need to use complex features like encryption.
UAC Utility: Remote Controller
Universal Task to launch, monitor, and return results from a task defined in a remote Universal Controller.For customers who would like to manage tasks in one Universal Controller from another Universal Controller. Simply supply the target Universal Controller URL, valid credentials, and the name of a task defined to the target Universal Controller. Using the web service API's, the Universal Task launches the requested task by name, captures the new instance sysid, and uses this to track the status of the task. After completion, the output is retrieved if the task type supports this, and the Universal Task complete with the same exit code as the launched task.
UAC Utility: Run a Command/Script on a Remote SSH Server
