Quali, a provider of Environments-as-a-Service infrastructure automation solutions, has announced the release of enhanced control plane features for its Torque platform, which enables DevOps professionals to orchestrate and secure complex application environments. New features expand automation and orchestration capabilities for heterogeneous environments including public, private, hybrid and container infrastructure, improve cost visibility and strengthen governance over security and compliance protocols.
Torque simplifies the orchestration and management of container, IaC and private cloud technologies with support for Helm, Terraform and vCenter all in the same modular, reusable blueprint, allowing users to define and provision environments complete with governance and policy definitions. By simplifying complex environments into self-service blueprints, DevOps teams can maintain control over cloud resources without slowing down developer access to infrastructure.
Torque now includes enhanced visibility and cost control capabilities including the ability to set limits for maximum duration and number of concurrent environments, limits for the total cost of an environment, Kubernetes cost reporting and improved forecasting and resource consumption policies per blueprint, sandbox and spaces.
Security enhancements include new customizable role-based access to blueprints, API Token Controls and integrations with secrets management technologies. DevOps teams can now leverage secrets into their blueprint designs and Torque will populate secrets during the deployment of sandboxes, automatically hardening the sandboxes.
Quali will be attending AWS Summit in San Francisco April 20th and 21st.
