Happy to share more integration points in Integra.  This time with Pure Storage.  Check it out!
As Pure Storage continues to innovate and extend our core platform it provides many opportunities to integrate or automate functional areas. Two publicly available examples of this integration are the PowerShell Toolkit and the Python library, both which leverage the use of the REST API. The PowerShell and Python work provide a great start for

How cool is this? #PowerCLI 6.0 was released earlier today and it is already being used directly from #Integra. Think of this as a sneak preview, but now that PowerCLI has been normalized into Integra, any cmdlet can be used as an Integra action. And with this, you get access via REST, mobile, CLI, 8 SDKs and more.

+Philippe Lhoste LOL We've been posting about Integra for a few months now  ;-)

How about this:  Integra is going to unleash the Automation Ninja inside of you.  Worry about the what, not the how: drag and drop quiescing / unquiescing operations, VM creation, upload to Azure / AWS, send emails, craft charts and more.

Once you have created all those kick ass workflows, you or your users can consume them from any mobile device.  You can select what your users execute, you can schedule things, or run things on demand.

If you can code, which we know you can, you can use Integra's REST API or any of the 7 SDKs we produce to build a portal of your own.  Or a native mobile app.  Or white label it and call Integra your own creation.

The possibilites are really endless.

Enjoy!  :-)

#Integra  is coming!  Our GA is right around the corner; we've been busy putting final touches, writing documentation (fun!), and just prepping the whole package for your delightful consumption. 

There is a new How To section on the main Emitrom site (http://emitrom.com/how_to) and we encourage you to let us know if there are use cases you would like to see us cover with Integra.  We'll get that list more TLC once we GA...

Watch this space or our Twitter accounts (@emitromdave or @emitromtweets) for the announcement.

Cheers!

Integra  - 
 
For the VMware users in the bunch, I've got a question.  Perhaps some of you can vouch your opinion about this piece of functionality in Integra.

We have an action in our VMware provider called "Reconfigure Virtual Machines" which, as its name implies, will alter the vCPU count and memory for the virtual machines that match CPU and mem. thresholds.

The action allows you to either downgrade or upgrade VMs.  For either operation, we look at the overall CPU utilization for the VM from the vm -> summary -> config -> runtime -> quickstats -> overall CPU usage, and for memory we look at the vm -> summary -> config -> runtime -> max. memory usage.

Integra asks for % utilization thresholds for both CPU and memory, and we compare them to the values mentioned above (overall CPU usage and max. memory usage).  When downgrading VMs the current values have to be less than the threshold, and when upgrading the current values have to be greater than the thresholds.

The burning question is:  are overall CPU usage and max. memory usage sound values to use for this?  If they are not, what would you suggest to use instead?

The reason this is a burning question is because this "Reconfigure Virtual Machines" action can chose to perform the reconfiguration, or you can chose to simply report the offending VMs.  Few folks want VMs altered automatically, so if we are actually reconfiguring the VMs we'd like to be absolutely sure we are using the correct metrics to base our decision.  Integra also gives you the ability to just report the offending VMs without reconfiguring anything.

Anyway, this is a situation that we've wondered about some.  If you have any input we'd highly appreciate it.

Best regards to all, and happy 2015.  Integra 1.0 is just around the corner--hang tight!

The latest blog post on #Integra is here.  Learn what you need to properly backup Oracle to Amazon S3 (or Azure).  No video this time, just a good ol'fashioned blog post.

Just to expand on that last post, here is a full blog on how you can expose PowerShell via REST using Integra.  To be honest, not only does the PowerShell module get exposed via REST, but also through any means Integra provides for accessing its components.

Hope you enjoy it!
Hi Friends, I've got some exciting news!  I've been chatting with a friend of mine, David La Motta - Co-Founder of Emitrom Inc., regarding his cool new product Integra.  David was nice enough to give me a demo of his new prod...

How do you configure concurrent operations in #Integra? The easy way, of course! http://emitrom.com/blogs/david/concurrent-integra-actions-and-workflows
There are two types of concurrency available in Integra today: at the workflow action level, and at the workflow level itself.  We'll examine both here and show you how you can use Integra to achieve concurrency in the most simple way possible.

What's a 1.0 release without a 1.0.1 soon after?  We are happy to share with you that Integra 1.0.1 is ready for download today.  There are a few things that escaped from the 1.0 GA that are taken care of in this patch.

Check it!

Hey everybody, happy to share our latest blog post.  We go over a couple of examples on pipes and variable substitution so you can make the most of #Integra

Having static workflows won't get you too far; but having the ability to dynamically input values and pass things around will make your life as an automation architect much better.

I'm staring to think the term should be Automation Ninja.

Happy Friday folks.  Hope you enjoy the blog post.
Integra has a a powerful mechanism for actions to consume the results of other actions. With the help of pipes, you can feed an action's results to one or more actions when combined in a workflow. This blog post gives you examples of how to make the most of Integra's piping mechanism, ...

The question below was fueled by our latest blog post, where we show you how to reconfigure your #VMware VMs using #Integra, from the convenience of your phone.

Hope you enjoy it!  Happy Monday.
Imagine you wanted to get an email on a weekly basis showing you how your virtual machines were doing in terms of CPU and memory utilization. Specifically, you wanted to know if you had allocated more CPUs or more memory than you should have; or, to the contrary, that you had allocated too ...
