We are pleased to announce the release of ClearGLASS, a new ClearOS application and service that is destined to become one of the tentpole ClearOS Marketplace apps.
Be sure to check out the ClearGLASS introduction and demo video at the bottom of this post.
The free Community Edition of ClearGLASS is now live in the ClearOS Marketplace and ready as the Release Candidate 1 version. That means that if installed, it will be update-able moving forward. The Business Edition of ClearGLASS is in closed beta starting today and will be fully released before the end of Q2 2018.

Using ClearGLASS you can securely and privately manage cloud resources from multiple providers, on-premises servers, Blockchain nodes, or decentralized IT infrastructure at any scale from a single management plane.
ClearGLASS supports more than 20 third-party providers and services including AWS, Azure, Docker Cloud, Rackspace, Linode and more.
If your organization maintains a mix of on-premises servers, off-premises servers, Blockchain nodes, virtual machines, containers or public/private cloud resources then you know just how difficult it is to juggle all of these IT assets especially when trying to optimize management and usage across technologies and infrastructure.
ClearGLASS solves this problem by providing orchestration, role-based access control, monitoring, alerts, security, visibility and control to make it easier to manage heterogeneous infrastructure all from within one console.
ClearGLASS also gives you insight into total costs spanning multiple cloud services and info on under-utilized resources allowing you to tell in realtime if your costs are exceeding the benefits to your IT infrastructure.
Using the advanced orchestration features of ClearGLASS you can easily spin up hundreds of resources, apps, or nodes on demand in order to meet your organizational needs.
ClearGLASS Community is ideal for personal projects and small teams with a DIY approach while ClearGLASS Business is ideal for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), large-scale Blockchain orchestration or SMB to enterprise size teams with advanced needs around automation, orchestration and role-based access control.
