Dell EMC NetWorker is a suite of enterprise level data protection software that unifies and automates backup to tape, disk-based, and flash-based storage media across physical and virtual environments for granular disaster recovery.

The NetWorker plugin integrates to allow you to define a data protection policy that is automatically associated with all workloads deployed on premise or in cloud. Using new cloud native functionality, you can rest assured that your critical workloads will always be protected regardless of where they land - private (VMware) or public (AWS and Azure) cloud.

Puppet is a configuration management system designed to automate the deployment of application stacks with predictably and control, helping avoid configuration drift across environments.

The Puppet plugin allows you to publish predefined classes to the Composer. These classes (code) can then be used to model complete application stacks as part of the blueprint design process. Further extending the power of this approach is the ability to pass run-time parameters to Puppet from dynamic cloud services included in the blueprint.

Commvault software assists organizations with data backup and recovery, cloud and infrastructure management, and retention and compliance.

The Commvault plugin associates custom tags to a workload on deployment to enable the Commvault media server to index and catalogue cloud services for protection. Commault uses this custom Tag to backup cloud instances, volumes and native services such as AWS RDS databases.

ScienceLogic is a monitoring and reporting tool that can analyse many different types of environments, including on premise infrastructure and cloud platforms including AWS and Azure.

The ScienceLogic plugin registers nominated workloads with ScienceLogic for detailed monitoring and reporting. ScienceLogic automatically discovers and monitors against predefined SLA's all deployed services including compute, storage and network - both on premise and in cloud. For deeper insight into VM resourcing a secure agent can be installed to collect detailed performance and capacity metrics not accessible via the cloud services API (CloudWatch etc.).

ServiceNow looks to solve enterprise‑level challenges, improving workflow and task management.

The ServiceNow plugin was designed to support the Service Management events: Request, Change, Asset and Incident. On deployment, the Cloud Broker invokes the ServiceNow plugin to register all newly created assets in the CMDB. To conform with ITIL best-practises, a Change request is open/closed for audit purposes. If the deployment fails an Incident is logged automatically.
