HP says Stratavia’s technologies will help enterprise customers to simplify the deployment and management of applications in hybrid IT environments, including physical, virtual and cloud environments.

Stratavia, based in Denver, makes automation tools that span the application lifecycle, from application development to deployment to ongoing management. Its modeling, configuration and management technologies can help bridge the gap between application developers and operational teams and speed the time it takes to get new applications up and running, HP says.

Stratavia’s software will also enhance HP’s Cloud Service Automation offering by making it easier to automatically deploy databases, middleware and packaged applications in cloud computing environments, HP says.

Stratavia’s flagship product is its Data Palette Platform, which performs tasks including: auto-discovery of application and database assets; tracking of application and database configurations and any changes to those configurations; and role-based access controls. A library of prepackaged automation content handles common tasks for popular software packages, such as Oracle provisioning and packaging, SQL Server migrations, DB2 maintenance, Sybase configuration and compliance management, and more.

“For eight years, Stratavia has been focused on developing application deployment automation solutions supporting tasks including provisioning, code deployment, configuration management, compliance, patching, as well as common user requests including migrations, refresh and back-ups,” said Thor Culverhouse, CEO of Stratavia, in a statement. “Combining Stratavia’s offerings with HP Server Automation will give clients a way to simplify and automate application deployment operations, minimizing downtime and mistakes.”

Earlier this month HP announced plans to buy Fortify Software, which makes tools to find software vulnerabilities and compliance software, for an undisclosed amount.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
