Open cloud automation software

Lenovo Open Cloud Automation

Accelerate your intelligent transformation journey by automating cloud and edge infrastructure deployments. Get business results faster with robust, battle proven cloud lifecycle management that bridges the gaps between cloud software vendor tooling and the reality faced by your infrastructure management teams.


What is Lenovo Open Cloud Automation

Lenovo Open Cloud Automation (LOC-A) is a software solution that rapidly deploys and manages the lifecycle of on-prem cloud infrastructure, regardless of its location: inside of a datacenter or distributed in your remote edge locations.

LOC-A uses Infrastructure as Code and GitOps best practices for consistent and error-free results. This speeds up on-prem cloud deployment on bare-metal servers and helps maintain a good security posture by avoiding configuration drift.

Capability and deployment

LOC-A has the capability to automate even the configuration of physical and virtual switches with specialized automation “plugins”, for a complete approach to infrastructure automation – network included. When it comes to deployment options, LOC-A adapts to your environment and can be installed on bare-metal, containers or virtual machines. Regardless of how it’s installed, LOC-A manages the lifecycle of on-prem clouds from Red Hat, VMware, or Kubernetes. At the Edge, LOC-A solves the logistical challenge. With zero-touch-provisioning of Lenovo edge servers and remote deployment of edge cloud software, bare-metal servers can be shipped directly to site, eliminating the need for golden images and staging environments.
