BT Cloud Compute, Formwise and AMP
Application Management Platform
Policy-Based Application Management
AMP blueprints let applications be packaged for non-stop as-a-service operation, without trivializing the architecture or constraining your processes. Blueprint model, monitor, and manage applications, on a wide range of infrastructure, building on – or building-in – monitoring tools, server management, PaaS, and highly-available services you control.
Automation for resilience, failover, and wide-area optimisation: today’s cloud application knows its needs and policies, recorded by design in AMP blueprints.
Leverage and share best-practices for leading components, from application servers to analytics as a service, and be secure with technology trusted by enterprises.
Run anywhere. Guard against lock-in and change, with blueprints which can run on public clouds or on-premise stacks, traditional fixed-IP or cutting-edge platform services.
Give existing enterprise applications and services a new lease on life by mixing in cloud architecture. Add elasticity and failover, improve testing, and modernize legacy deployment, all without changing code.
Applications born in the cloud combine services, containers, and custom code, spanning locations and taking care of best execution natively. Make runtime behaviour part of a devops app-design process.
Business requirements are an intrinsic part of modern application, especially in highly regulated industries. AMP blueprints include jurisdiction and performance SLA’s to ensure safe execution.
