Alien4cloud

With the digital transformation, companies continuously modernize their IT, develop innovation and rapidly shift to cloud based models.
A complete agility during any phase of the application lifecycle is paramount. It requires more application development efficiency and the cloud enablement of existing and new applications.
Alien4cloud allows IT operations to be responsive to any business application team requirement with more IT agility and effectiveness.
Enterprise DevOps platform & Cloud enabler

Alien4cloud fully automates the application lifecycle, from development to deployment and production both on premise and for all types of cloud. It allows customers to leverage the best infrastructure during all steps of the application lifecycle on an on-demand basis by abstracting the application from the infrastructure.

With alien4cloud

* Accelerate Time To Market:
Industrialize business application development
Deploy in a few minutes instead of a few days without an expert support
* Reduce TCO
* No vendor lock-in (TOSCA compliant)

Thanks to

* A role based self-service portal
* A powerful blueprints designer
* A TOSCA component and blueprint catalog accelerating the application design and reusability
* Application portability across different infrastructures, while guarantying no lock-in.

Platform

Designs application stack end-to-end and deploys application on any infrastructure

Self-Service

Alien4Cloud allows people in the enterprise to collaborate in order to provide self-service deployment of complex applications through a role based portal. Self-service is not only for key users but also for development teams that want to build and deploy complex applications and leverage different infrastructures such as cloud resources to deploy their environments in minutes.

Share components

In order to accelerate application design, alien4cloud provides a Components and Blueprints catalog.
Leveraging OASIS TOSCA standard, alien4cloud improves components reusability and ensures application portability. Open-source software components and data lake & analytics blueprints are already available.
Indeed, developers can benefit from components ready to use but also create and share new ones within the catalog. Reusing components and blueprints speeds up development phases, ease collaboration but also improves application quality and performance.

Design Blueprints

Alien4cloud application platform modeling allows to graphically design components and blueprints of an application, independently from the infrastructure.
With the powerful designer, developers easily drag & drop components, describe workflows, design blueprint and save it as a TOSCA template. Therefore alien4cloud allows deploying the same blueprint on different infrastructures with minimal (or no) changes. Quickly, DevOps teams are able to design applications ready for Hybrid Cloud.

Deploy on any infrastructure

Once designed, the blueprint (TOSCA template) isolates the application evolution from deployment technologies and infrastructures. Furthermore, alien4cloud integrates with any deployment layer and infrastructure to manage automatic deployments of applications. From the self-service portal, different roles and expert in the enterprise can automatically deploy applications anywhere in one click, allowing them to leverage on-demand the best infrastructure in any phase of the Application lifecycle (from dev to prod).

Use Cases

Master your digital transformation

As part of their digital transformation, organizations will migrate their existing applications on clouds and will design portable cloud applications.
Using alien4cloud, developers model once and deploy in one click everywhere.
Organizations will store their applications and data sets and make them available in a marketplace accessible to users, developers and business departments as well as to their partners and customers.

Hybrid cloud enablement

As part of its digital transformation, a large French retail bank wanted to migrate 100s of applications on 1000s of virtual machines onto Cloud platforms, public or private. In addition, they wanted a full openness that can only be guaranteed by a TOSCA-compliant platform. They decided to leverage TOSCA as a DevOps package to capture the entire application stack. Alien4cloud helped the retail bank to industrialize the hybrid cloud enablement process at scale while avoiding any cloud vendor lock-in. Atos provided the professional services to accompany the teams along the project, the consulting and training services as well as some development services.

Application lifecycle automation

As part of its digital transition, a large French bank (through an IT provider) wanted to centrally distribute Hadoop solutions as a self-service for the group subsidiaries. They did not have in-house expertise on complex Hadoop solutions. Atos has provided alien4cloud, consulting services and training. Alien4cloud accelerated the availability of Hadoop cluster provisioning (from days to minutes) and easily adapted the standard Hadoop topology to business departments (components, versions,…).

Marketplace

Business users will easily select an application, use available data sets, and deploy the application and data in any location (regional Data centers, private or public clouds). A marketplace powered by alien4cloud has been implemented and will provide applications and data sets through a self-service with configurable business rules.
