Update Management

Keep your VM environment up-to-date automatically by leveraging automation and tagging to subscribe to OS update channels.


Keeping virtual machines up-to-date with the latest operating system (and anti-virus) updates is critical to the stable and secure operation of infrastructure-based workloads. Cloudmarque advocates an automated update process which sees virtual machines “subscribe” to defined deployment cadences based on a predefined tagging convention.

Update Management is responsible for:

  • Automatically installing updates on target VMs
  • Scheduling service windows when systems may be unavailable
  • Setting the types of updates that will be installed


Cloudmarque workload components use a service locator pattern to identify the services they provide and specify dependencies. The Update Management capability is part of the Automation (Management) component.
