Cloud Management

With JustOpex, Cloud Management is now EASY

Cloud technologies are getting more complex and organizations are looking for a simpler way to manage multiple clouds. Having their staff trained and ready to go on different clouds is not cost effective. The flip side is that organizations tend to become less agile due to inflexibility in skills. 

JustOpex delivers simple, cost effective, standardized and automated cloud management for different clouds. This is available to organizations using our self service console through which you can express your needs and the cloud specific work is handled by us on demand or on schedule.

To get started, please look below at the infographics. If you require additional help, please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

    Projects

    A project is essentially your business function. For example, this project could be about an "App X Test" (for mobile app X testing project. If you are a service provider, you can say "Zeus-ABC" (to mean development of project Zeus for ABC corp) Create your own project or select a project to manage. Remember you can add any number of projects as you want and there is no limitation to that or additional charges for creating projects.

  • Setting up

    When you own a project, you can add other users and specify their roles. You can also check out the various subscripton levels and choose the level most appropriate for your project. If you are not the owner of the project, you go from picking a project straight to the dashboard from where you can manage your project resources.

    The fine print

    Please read the fine print and understand the terms and conditions. This is important for you as well as us that you understand what we do and, more importantly, "what we do not do".

Cloud Management

  • User role

    A user at this level of access has read-only access for a project. Users with "read only" access to a project can browse through the resource inventory of the project, look at the various defined schedules as well as review the status of submitted jobs and audit logs. A user of one project can be an admin or even an owner for another project.

    1

  • Admin role

    A person who is defined as an administrator (or admin) for a project can perform tasks that alter the state of the resources of the project. Tasks such as start (boot up), stop (or shutdown) or reboot servers, perform or schedule backups, enable specific servers to be monitored etc. Restoration of backups, changing the size of the server or cloning servers can also be performed by the administrator. The subscription level of the project limits what functions are available to the project administrator.

    2

  • Owner role

    A project owner typically is accountable, or owns the P/L, of the project in her organization. The project owner therefore has access to all aspects of the project that impact the financial aspects of the project. In addition to the "access levels" of an administrator, the project owner also has access to perform user administration as well as manage the subscription levels for the project. The rights of an owner are not transferrable once defined in the self service portal. Should you have a genuine reason for this, please contact support.

    3

  • All users

    All users who are defined to at least one project can update their own profile, change password, etc. Users can switch between projects to which they have access. Any user who has access to the self service portal can create her own project when she has the access levels of a project owner as defined above.
