Fugue Centralizes Cloud Infrastructure Management Fugue Inc. has enhanced its cloud infrastructure management platform. It now provides control over multiple Amazon Web Services Inc. accounts. Fugue Team Conductor was launched yesterday by the Frederick, Md. company. It allows users to centralize and scale their management, governance, and collaboration operations. Fugue stated yesterday that since its inception, Fugue has been focused on providing customers with the tools to automatically build, enforce, and retire cloud infrastructure. Fugue’s code validation and access control, multi-account management, continuous policy enforcement capabilities, and code validation are all extended with the new release. This will allow customers to have an end-to–end, next-generation cloud operations system. The start-up’s “industry first”, product was announced last August. It acts as the layer between AWS cloud and services to automate deployment and management middleware, databases, and other services that support applications. Yesterday’s announcement affirmed that claim of being “industry-first”. “Fugue, the industry’s first comprehensive solution, compiles configurations, manages automates, monitors, enforces AWS cloud workloads. This helps I&O teams quickly optimize cloud operations to ensure an exceptional end user experience,” said the company. Team Conductor is a tool that helps organizations use AWS cloud.

  • Reduce risk with role-based access controls and policy-ascode compliance, security rules, and other measures
  • Configuration drift can be eliminated by ensuring that the infrastructure state is maintained and enforced.
  • Help cloud architects and DevOps teams to simplify and share their infrastructure compositions, patterns libraries and best practices.
  • Fast access to dev/text environments for DevOps teams. Managed Service Providers, (MSPs), can quickly spin up and remove development and test environments.

Fugue is not the only vendor to offer solutions. These solutions also help AWS customers better understand the myriad AWS services and products that can be used to create complex cloud infrastructure implementations. Gartner Inc. explained last year the need for such products, along with professional support. “Organizations that cannot quickly take advantage of new capabilities will not receive the full benefits of AWS’s rapid introduction of new services and expanded capabilities for existing services,” Gartner said in a Magic Quadrant report on the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) market. “Customers’ best practices could become obsolete as new or cheaper capabilities are added.” Gartner stated that customers who are less experienced may feel overwhelmed by the number of options available. Training and third-party assistance are highly recommended. Customers must actively seek out the sales and solution architecture engagements they require to succeed. This may require professional services. Fugue Team Conductor pricing starts at $15,000 annually
