This week I had the pleasure of taking a deeper look at Morpheus Data’s Cloud Management and PaaS solution. I deployed it in my home lab and it went as smooth as a babies bottom. Very quick install and very simple to complete…. It basically does most of the work for you… So to pass on this knowledge I recorded my step in a Quick Install Guide and demonstrate Install, Config and a quick deployment of an instance…. All in all took less than 2 hours…
You should try it too, you love it.

2 hours… i think about that… compare that to other products… I think this will be the first post of many…
Very proud to announce my first sponsor of my new blog blog.cloudnativeplanet.com Morpheus Data. I was very lucky to see a demo of Morpheus Data and was wowed by how feature rich the solution is. The person running the demo just happened to be an old friend of mine from Veeam James Smith. Morpheus is full blown CMP/PaaS or PaaS/CMP not which way round you class it but I saw it as a PaaS product. If you ever sat in one of my PaaS presentations you’d know I look for certain characteristics in a PaaS solution and Morpheus is there IMO. At later stage, I’m going to get a chance to play with this product myself but some words from me on the subject:
“Morpheus Data is a company that has come to my attention during my research into CMP solutions. From what I can tell so far, Morpheus has the most complete support of both public and private clouds and allows customers to deploy operating systems, applications or containers into any of the supported platforms equally easily. As well as providing a very simple to use self-service portal to deploy these ‘instance’s it also allows you to build application stacks of multiple components and deploy these at the click of a button. The product also has integrations in tools that are very popular in the DevOps world, things like Ansible, Chef, Puppet to allow workflows to be run at deployment time or at any time after an instant or application has been deployed.
Not only does Morpheus claim to make deployments very easy, but the product also offers monitoring, log capture and backup for the instances as well.
The complete list of supported clouds, integrations and infrastructures tools is very extensive and if it can do everything it claims, this could be a very interesting product. “
Watch out for more good stuff from Morpheus Data.
