Lifecycle and Policy Management

Lifecycle & Policy Management

Commander's robust policy engine automates VM lifecycle management, ensuring that VMs are decommissioned within set time limits. Flexible notification and expiry extension options ensure that users are well informed and able to keep VMs active for as long as they are needed, without introducing sprawl.

Multiple enforcement options allow multi-stage decommissioning using any combination of quarantine, power state management, and the ability to remove services from inventory before finally deleting them after a cooling off period you define.
