ClearGLASS is a platform that simplifies cloud management and helps users prevent vendor and complexity lock-in. It offers cost and usage reporting, RBAC, management, provisioning, orchestration, monitoring, and automation for servers across public and private clouds, Docker containers, and KVM hypervisors. It emits actionable alerts so users can address operational issues from anywhere, using any web device.
The UI and API are released under an open source license for standalone installations. They can optionally connect to the service to provide monitoring and automation.
If you are new to ClearGLASS you might want to review the quick start guide to get you set up. If you are looking to integrate ClearGLASS to your workflow, you should have a look at the REST API. There is also support to run Ansible playbooks and a command line client (CLI) that can help you automate all tasks, written in python.
The modern computing landscape can include public or private clouds, Docker containers and bare-metal servers. They are usually combined in hybrid setups and although the management needs are common there are different toolsets for each one. This adds a lot of complexity and management overhead. Users have to either adopt one vendor and lock themselves in or stick to complexity and slow down infrastructure operations.
ClearGLASS provides a single UI and API for infrastructure and application management. From cost and usage reporting, RBAC, creating servers and deploying applications, to monitoring system uptime and performance metric or alerting and automating responses.
Regardless of where the servers are hosted - locally, on a public or private cloud, a KVM hypervisor or a Docker engine, ClearGLASS offers a unified dashboard that reduces UI fragmentation and eases management.
