Autonomus Digital Enterprise specialist, BMC, has announced that BMC Helix Discovery, a cloud-native discovery and dependency mapping solution, is offering integrated use of AWS Systems Manager. This makes it easier and safer to identify and map all resources on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Previously, operators had to open security ports to enable use of Secure Shell (SSH) to perform an Amazon EC2 discovery and obtain a dependency map. SSH requires multiple scans and custom security credentials per instance, resulting in a very manual and time intensive process. AWS Systems Manager enables customers to maintain a high security standard for their AWS workloads while reaping the benefits of the BMC Helix Discovery solution in managing their infrastructure and applications.
“We designed AWS Systems Manager to securely and easily enable visibility of operational data on AWS. We’re excited that now, with BMC Helix Discovery, customers can get the level of detail they demand,” said Siva Padisetty, General Manager, AWS Management Tools, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “As organizations move toward an Autonomous Digital Enterprise, this innovative approach to discovery lets organizations modernize their operations management and manage at scale.”
The BMC Helix Discovery solution with AWS Systems Manager helps organizations realize cost savings as well as drive service and operations management efficiencies.
“To achieve service and operations excellence, it’s critical that organizations have dynamic visibility into all their environments,” said Ali Siddiqui, Chief Product Officer at BMC. “By working with AWS, we optimized BMC Helix Discovery to provide a revolutionary way to safely and comprehensively discover everything in the environment enabling best-in-class management of the entire organisation.”
