Success Story: Real-Time Automation in Hybrid IT Environments
"With Stonebranch, we were able to migrate all of our applications to the cloud quickly and efficiently."
"A great tool to orchestrate and automate our processes"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
