“As the data center has evolved from the client/server to the web computing paradigm, solutions for provisioning, change, and configuration management have not kept pace.
BladeLogic was founded by industry veterans who understood these problems first-hand given their experience in directly managing highly complex, globally-distributed computing environments, including eleven data centers on four different continents. Through that experience they identified the pressing need for a new data center automation platform to help IT organizations more efficiently provision, configure, and manage today’s highly sophisticated data center environment.
BladeLogic’s data center automation solutions enable a state where dynamic policies — that link people, management tasks, and configuration data — drive the automatic optimization of the IT infrastructure, creating a highly agile, business-driven IT environment.”
