Cloud Automation

Centrally control automated IT processes across private and public cloud, multi-cloud, and on-premises hybrid IT environments — all from a single solution designed for real-time, event-based automation.

A Cloud Automation Solution That Goes Beyond the Cloud

With the cloud automation solution, part of the Universal Automation Center (UAC), enterprises have the power to orchestrate IT processes, schedule cloud workloads, spin up cloud infrastructures, and manage data transfers across and between any cloud environment.

In addition, the UAC helps you bridge the automation gap between on-premises and cloud-based solutions. It's built for cross-team collaboration, so you can easily automate and centrally manage workloads across the boundaries of your entire hybrid IT environment.

Across and Between Cloud, On-Premises, and Containerized Systems

The UAC is a single platform that orchestrates all automated IT processes — while enabling collaboration between IT Ops, cloud architects, developers, data teams, and more.

  • Cloud services automation in AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, and other providers
  • Transfer data between on-premises and cloud solutions, or across multiple clouds
  • Intelligent event-based scheduling for real-time automation
  • Automated cloud infrastructure deployment
  • Redirect overflow traffic with cloud bursting
  • Container-based workload management — schedule jobs within containers
  • Role-based access to support cloud architects, developers, data teams, IT Ops, and others
  • DevOps ready — deliver jobs-as-code
  • SaaS-based or on-prem deployment options

Connect to and Schedule Automated Jobs Within any Cloud Platform or SaaS Application

Integrations between the UAC and your cloud technology stack allow you to perform cloud scheduling directly from the UAC — eliminating the need for custom scripts, clunky open-source schedulers, or managing a myriad of tool-specific in-built job schedulers.

  • Integrate the UAC with any platform or application within your cloud environment
  • Download pre-designed cloud integrations from the Integration Hub
  • Easily create integrations on your own with templates and rich documentation
  • Build your own custom integrations with Stonebranch developers

Cloud Automation Use Cases

The UAC provides IT Ops with centralized control and security, while cloud architects, data teams, and developers are empowered to create automated processes with the speed and agility they require.

Cloud Automation - Multi-Cloud Orchestration  - Icon Advantages

Multi-Cloud 
Orchestration

Automate and schedule workloads in AWS, GCP, Azure, and more — enabling real-time workflows that span across your multi-cloud environment. Additionally, transfer data directly to, from, and between cloud service providers (CSP), SaaS applications, and even on-premises tools.

Cloud Automation - Cloud Infrastructure Automation  - Icon Advantages

Cloud Infrastructure
Automation

Centrally automate (remote) server provisioning and configuration. Add cloud service providers to your automation workflows for enhanced automation capabilities. Integrate with and control automated processes within pure-play integration management solutions, like Ansible, Terraform, or Puppet.

Cloud Automation - Hybrid Cloud File Transfer - Icon Advantages

Hybrid Cloud
Data Transfer

By combining the UAC's advanced scheduling engine with its in-built managed file transfer capabilities, you can securely transfer data between your local file server, mainframe, or SAN; and your cloud service providers, including AWS S3; and cloud storage platforms, like Azure Storage, Google Cloud Storage, SharePoint and OneDrive; and more.

Cloud Automation - Simplify Cloud Migrations  - Icon Advantages

Simplify Cloud
Migrations

Move workloads to the cloud without ever missing the benefits of automation. When migrating applications to the cloud, allocate the resources needed to execute workloads at runtime without changing workload definitions.

Cloud Automation - Containers / Microservices Automation - Icon Advantages

Containers/Microservices Automation

Seamlessly deploy UAC agent technology in containers. Use its powerful scheduling capabilities to deploy a container with a set of microservices, execute the microservices, safely store the results, then stop and remove the container. Easily integrate with container management platforms like Red Hat OpenShift.

Cloud Automation - Cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service -  Icon Advantages

Cloud Infrastructure
as-a-Service

Allow non-IT staff to turn cloud infrastructure on and off — while IT centrally regulates which cloud providers and how much is allowed. End-users gain speed and productivity; IT gains end-to-end visibility and control.

Demo Video: Multi-Cloud Data Transfer

Easily transfer data to, from, and between any of the major cloud providers in a multi-cloud environment.
