Cloud technology has been considered as a boon to reduce the operational cost yet provide the best in class IT Service delivery. Virtualization as a technology can have a radical change on how business pays for its technology and handles the associated risk. A cloud infrastructure can create workload performance risks when placement is not optimized.
IBM SmartCloud Monitoring/ITMfVE includes policy-driven analytics to enable intelligent workload placement. It provides actionable recommendations on where to place workloads to gain the highest efficiency.
An effective capacity planning using ITMfVE, helps you in optimizing the environment and you can potentially eliminate few servers because the load can efficiently be distributed on to the rest of the servers in your environment. This process will result into reducing the hardware & software license costs and the total cost of ownership will be reduced significantly.
