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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
