Page 8 of 9 9 DATASHEET CloudBolt Capabilities for Google Cloud Platform Supported services Discoverable resources Continuous discovery and refresh VM customization Multi-environment blueprints Service orchestration Power scheduling Chargeback / showback / shameback Cloud bursting Expiration dates Resource quotas and limits Continuous environment testing VM migration from other virtualization systems/clouds Google Compute Engine, networking, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google Cloud SQL VM instances, zones, instance sizes, security groups, images, cloud networks, subnets, key pair names, tags on VMs Enables full management of resources created outside of CloudBolt. Using Chef, Puppet, Ansible or remote scripts. CloudBolt blueprints can be set to be deployable to both GCP and any other set of clouds and virtualization systems. CloudBolt has 15 trigger points during the provisioning process that support five different types of actions: remote scripts, webhooks, email hooks, external orchestration flows in vRO or HP OO, and CloudBolt plug-ins. A weekly power schedule can be specified for VMs to shut them off during hours when they are not needed to save on costs. CloudBolt ingests the billing data from GCP to provide rate previews and comparisons when ordering, show the rates on servers and environments, and also generate exportable per-group billing and trend reports. Services running in private virtualization systems can be set to scale to GCP when they reach specified maximum thresholds, then back down when the load on the resources goes below minimum thresholds. Available with per-environment and per-group configurable behavior at expiration time. Limits are settable on groups, environments, GCP accounts and per user. Orders can be set as CIT tests within CloudBolt so deployments are tested nightly to ensure a healthy build pipeline. Via integration with CloudEndure.
