S01E01 – Solving Workload Automation with Morpheus Data

Chris EvansHybrid Cloud Podcast

This episode was recorded at Dell Technologies World in April 2019, held in Las Vegas, USA. Chris talks with Brad Parks, VP Marketing and Business Development at Morpheus Data.

Morpheus has created an automation and application deployment framework that allows customers to reduce the time and effort needed in managing Hybrid Cloud deployments. Rather than having processes that differ for each platform, Morpheus brings together a single standard for rolling out virtual machines across private and public infrastructure that includes VMware, Microsoft, AWS and more.

The benefits here are clearly defined in three areas:

  • Discovery – understanding and documenting the scope of existing infrastructure. This leads to reducing infrastructure spending
  • Efficiency – implementing streamlined processes that allow the business to do more and at greater speed
  • Avoiding risk – reducing the risk of running multiple disparate processes and standards.
