Case Study: Fortian’s Atmosphere Datacenter™
Atmosphere is a framework for reliably provisioning testbeds and data centers. It provides assurance that hosts contain a well-specified set of software, without remnants of previous deployments or artifacts of prior tests. Additionally, it provides up-to-the-minute status of each host, including installation status, machine health, and availability for use. Atmosphere also features innovative system reinstallation techniques and supports dynamic host allocation, system isolation with VLANs, and SNMP management of infrastructure components. Finally, Atmosphere integrates with Atmosphere AgNO3™, Fortian's test management and orchestration software.
Fortian designed, implemented, and successfully deployed Atmosphere in several environments, including DARPA DCAMANET, FCS TAIDR, and ONR ATDL, and for multiple clients, including NRL, CENGEN, and ITT AES.
