The solution is a fully adaptable offering which is easily extendable to use your own third party Service Catalogue or Change Request System such as BMC Remedy, ServiceNow, CA Service Desk Manager or HP Service Manager to initiate the process, or the Service Catalogue can be hosted in Service Manager but the Change Process can be driven via your existing Service Desk.

New Virtual Machines can be added to the Service Manager CMDB or created in your own CMDB such as BMC Atrium, ServiceNow or CA Service Desk Manager.

The solution is not restricted to Microsoft HyperV it will provision HyperV, VMware, Citrix Xen, Windows Azure or Amazon EC2 VMs or all five simultaneously, or alternatively the Self-Service migration of VMs between hypervisors.

This Orchestrator driven solution delivers a number of fully automated functions;

  • Service Manager Service Catalogue Request being received
  • Change Requested raised in Service Manager
  • Hyper-V VM deployed via VMM
  • XenServer, VMware, EC2 or Azure VM provisioned directly via an Orchestrator Integration Pack.
  • VM CI created in the SCSM CMDB
