Service Management Extensions for Hybrid Cloud is now available!
IBM’s hybrid cloud offering is now enhanced with Service Management extensions from Tivoli to monitor and secure the management of resources on both public and private clouds.
Service Management Extensions for Hybrid Cloud extend the capabilities of Tivoli service management and delivery solutions, including IBM Tivoli Service Automation Manager, which enables users to request, deploy, monitor and manage cloud computing services to create a more modern and dynamic data center. IBM Tivoli Monitoring Software helps optimize IT infrastructure performance and availability. The extensions can help increase control over owned resources, better manage costs and data relocation processes, and help ensure the security of critical data and other assets.
Leveraging Service Management Extensions on Tivoli Service Automation Manager and Websphere Cast Iron Integration software, the Hybrid Cloud solution provides key capabilities that:
• Control and management: Define policies, monitoring and performance rules for the public cloud in the same way as on-premise resources. As a result, organizations can more easily control costs, IT capacity and regulatory concerns.
• Data Integration: Monitor, provision and integrate to support “cloud bursting”--dynamic relocation of workloads from private environments to public clouds during peak times.
• Security: Enable better control of users’ access by synching the user directories of on-premise and cloud applications. The automated synchronization means users can only gain entry to the information they are authorized to access.Service Management Extension are available free of charge via the IBM Integrated Service Management Library.
