Booz Allen’s open cloud broker solution is built on ManageIQ, making it agnostic to infrastructure technology and platform choices. This solution enables cloud consumers to select, provision, and manage on-premise and off-premise Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) resources, Platform as a Service (PaaS), and ultimately Software as a Service (SaaS) products. Built on ManageIQ, Booz Allen’s cloud broker solution is an open source, unified cloud computing platform that spans the entire order processing life cycle – order selection, approval, delivery and management – offering a Orbitz-like user experience. It consists of a portal or storefront (Drupal Commerce), orchestration engine (Red Hat JBoss jBPM and Fuse ESB), and cloud gateway (ManageIQ) that enables enhanced self-service of cloud services on demand.
Booz Allen will discuss the overall design selection process, architecture and implementation considerations, and real-life use cases and challenges associated with creating a fully functional cloud services broker using ManageIQ.
