An IT engineer at brocade.net has created a bot that automatically installs Windows 10 to PCs in his home, a feature called Automation of Service (AOS) that will be rolled out to all brocade users later this year.
Brunswick wrote on LinkedIn that his bot was created to automate service delivery for customers in Brunswick, New Brunswick.
“Automation of service is one of the most important services brocade provides and one that I think the brocade team are really excited about,” he said.
I’m not a big fan of the word “automation” as it seems a little too broad, but the fact that they’re putting in a bot for the brocades network has me excited to see what the future holds.
Automation is one thing that brocade does well.
The company has automated the entire installation of its operating system, including upgrading to Windows 10 and installing Windows Update.
Brocade also has a cloud-based service called Brocade Automation, which allows users to automate their own service provisioning and provisioning of services.
Brocade Automator allows users who have installed Windows 10 but want to continue to have access to their Windows machines, and have no need to install additional software, to do that by simply creating a new Service Scheduler for their Brocade account.
The service scheduler creates a Scheduled Task which runs on Brocade machines which are then automatically installed, along with other services.
Brocade has also announced that users who want to manually manage their Brocades operating system and their service provision can do so by downloading a Brocade Admin Console application that has been created by Brocade’s engineers to automate these tasks for them.
A Brocade user can now automate the creation of a scheduled task for their computer by typing the following commands into the Brocade admin console: Start the Brocade Admin Console from the Brocingetool.exe file located in the “Brunnswick” folder.
Set the BroCade account’s default domain as a domain that has no restrictions for the time being.
When the task is created, the following events will occur: Brocade administrator will create a scheduled command to run on the Brocede computer.
Brocadede user will see a dialog box where they can enter the desired command.
Brocinger will run the Bro cade command.
Now that the Brocer has completed the Brocte command, the Brociede user can save the command and run it from the desktop.
At this point, the command created by the Brocas admin console has been run and the Broccade administrator has finished the task.
If you are wondering why Brocade chose to call this automated service Automation for Service (ABoS), it is because the automating part of Brocade was designed with an emphasis on efficiency.
In a blog post, Brocade wrote that ABoS provides “robust, secure, and fault-tolerant” support for users who wish to automate any part of their system, whether that be service provision, hardware configuration, software deployment, or data backup.
This makes it a good fit for a company that needs to automate a wide range of processes and processes that are not typically done manually, like system administration, software development, network configuration, and backup of data.
