Morpheus Data has announced the release of its largest software update of the year in a move that will help enterprise customers streamline the transition to containers and simplify the adoption of infrastructure-as-code within a single self-service platform.
Morpheus v5.3.1 features Morpheus Kubernetes updates to simplify how clients build, manage, and consume container clusters in hybrid-cloud and mixed platform environments.
The latest version also includes dozens of cloud management updates including expanded Google Cloud Platform and VMware integration as well as custom UI and reporting plug-ins.
In Morpheus v5.3.1, customers can now take advantage of Terraform Instance Types, providing a catalog front-end to Terraform modules and directly linking IaC provisioned resources to automation tools like Ansible, Chef, SaltStack, Puppet, and more. By attaching phase-based automation to IaC, operations teams can fully control the lifecycle of a Terraform resource and simplify post-provisioning tasks. These Terraform instances can even be exposed to ITSM tools such as ServiceNow with just a handful of mouse clicks and zero added cost.
Morpheus is also simplifying the use of Terraform in on-premises environments with the development of its own Morpheus Terraform provider. The Morpheus Terraform provider will enable Terraform users to have a single unified provider to utilize across any on-prem or public cloud without adding complexity.
