New Command Line Interface (CLI) for ProfitBricks Cloud Gives Greater Control to SysAdmins

Painless Cloud Provider's CLI 2.0 Opens Up Functionality for SysAdmins to Manage All of Their Infrastructure

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2015) - ProfitBricks, the provider of painless cloud infrastructure IaaS, today announced its new Command Line Interface (CLI). Dubbed 'CLI 2.0', the new interface grants administrators access to all functionalities of their ProfitBricks cloud, giving them the choice of managing their entire infrastructure through a CLI, the Data Center Designer or both.

ProfitBricks developed the CLI 2.0 for SysAdmin power users using feedback directly from those users. It gives those users with extensive cloud data centers quick access to the features they need most at a speed that matches how they regularly work. Implemented against ProfitBricks' REST API, the new CLI can be used for functions across the entire infrastructure, such as creating servers, attaching volumes and managing LANs.

"Our new Command Line Interface is yet another step forward that ProfitBricks has taken in improving the functionality of our cloud," said Achim Weiss, Co-founder and CEO of ProfitBricks. "Having already made great strides in our DevOps solutions and developing a class-leading Data Center Designer, we now have a CLI that gives power users the control that they need to make the best use out of their ProfitBricks cloud."

"CLI 2.0 is a first-in-class interface, designed to be the best in the market," added Matt Baldwin, head architect at ProfitBricks. "It exposes functions that, while possible within our Data Center Designer, are far more efficient through a CLI when implemented across the types of large-scale infrastructures that many of our power users are operating."

ProfitBricks' CLI announcement follows the company's recent DevOps developments, including the launch of its DevOps Central community in April 2015, and the recent release of its REST API and support for multi-cloud libraries and SDKs for Go, Java, Python, Ruby, .NET and Node.js. The company also launched an early access preview of its Docker platform, featuring dedicated resources that autoscale.
