What if you had smarter cloud cost management?

It’s almost impossible for humans—no matter how skilled in DevOps, SRE or cloud—to continuously determine the exact compute, storage and database configurations for cloud applications to deliver performance at the lowest cost. So, you increase the allocation of cloud infrastructure to avoid application performance risks, and often end up with an unnecessarily high cloud bill.

Using the IBM® Turbonomic® platform’s AI-powered automation and cloud optimization solutions, you can continuously help ensure application performance (both traditional and cloud-native) and optimize costs. The platform’s cloud cost management tools work with public, private, multicloud and hybrid cloud environments and with any major cloud provider. With Turbonomic software, your cloud investments are smarter (it’s an ideal solution for organizations adopting FinOps!), automation is easier, and you can finally realize the promise of agility, elasticity and speed to market.

Optimize your cloud environment

Cloud compute optimization Turbonomic software automatically determines the correct virtual machine (VM) instance type for your cloud application workloads. The solution uses a wide range of metrics: vCPU, vMem, network and storage input/output (IO), throughput, reserved instance inventory, pricing and discounts, disk count, quota and available region.

Cloud storage optimization Turbonomic software evaluates throughput and IOPS demand to scale to the optimal storage solution for each individual disk. This includes scaling between and within storage tiers, sizing up volumes, modifying IOPS or throughput capacity on 101/102 Azure Ultra with no downtime, and deleting unattached storage devices.

Database optimization Take advantage of platform as a service (PaaS) more completely when you can scale Azure SQL and Amazon RDS database resources exactly when the application needs them, without paying for unused database capacity.

Kubernetes optimization Turbonomic software optimizes any upstream version of Kubernetes with container rightsizing, continuous pod moves, intelligent cluster scaling and container planning. The intuitive container platform dashboard lets you view the overall performance, capacity and health of your container infrastructure and get insights into top container platform clusters so you can assess their health and sort by risk level.

Reserved instances optimization Turbonomic software provides specific, automatable compute scaling actions based on utilization so you can fully use existing RI inventory and maximize reservation-to-VM coverage. The software automatically ingests and displays negotiated rates and helps you capitalize on savings opportunities.

How Turbonomic addresses common cloud challenges
How can I safely reduce my public cloud bill without impacting application performance?

The Turbonomic platform's AI-powered software continuously generates hybrid cloud cost optimization actions that dynamically match application demand to infrastructure supply. This helps ensure applications receive exactly what they need to perform at the lowest cost. These actions do not risk performance because our analytics engine accounts for the resource needs and dependencies across the full stack, from application to platform to hardware.

The automatable, scalable solutions Turbonomic software provides allow you to drive efficiency in your cloud usage, improve your cost analysis and maximize the value of your cloud budget.

How can I maximize discount pricing coverage?

The Turbonomic platform’s analytics engine automatically ingests and displays negotiated rates with public cloud providers. It then generates specific reserved instance purchasing and scaling actions so you can take full advantage of existing RI inventory and maximize reservation-to-instance coverage.

How can I continuously eliminate cloud cost overruns for my organization?

Turbonomic software enables you to integrate hybrid cloud cost optimization actions into your pipelines, processes and workflows. With the Turbonomic platform, you can execute automation with ease and achieve immediate outcomes that last.
