Features include a redesigned reporting solution to support multiple chargeback methodologies.

Cloud automation services provider Quest Software announced the release of its Cloud Automation Platform 7.5, the company's cloud automation and management technology. The platform helps small to medium-size businesses manage and deliver IT services across the enterprise. When combined with the overall Quest virtualization management portfolio, the Quest Cloud Automation Platform offers a comprehensive solution for deploying and automating infrastructure as a service to private clouds, the company claimed.

The Cloud Automation Platform assumes the presence of virtual infrastructure from either VMware or Microsoft, and allows combinations of both in a single private cloud. In addition, the Cloud Automation Platform integrates with physical provisioning and automation solutions from technology providers such as Hewlett-Packard and Symantec. Finally, the platform provides a self-service portal backed by automated service delivery and recovery, as well as user-centric services that can be scaled.

Features include the Cloud Capacity Management Dashboard, which provides an interactive graphical view of pooled infrastructure that enables cloud administrators to manage cloud capacity and resource allocation, and an updated graphical interface that enables administrators to manage migration recommendations from performance management tools (i.e., VMware vMotion, DRS, DPM) while maintaining the integrity of a self-service cloud.
