How it works

VMware vCenter Server provides a centralized management platform for VMware hypervisors. When you manage your VMware environment with the IBM® Turbonomic® platform, our software manages resources to help ensure that your VMs automatically get the resources they need to perform. 

Additionally, many customers stitch their virtualization layer to other parts of the stack, including applications and databases, container platforms, cloud for hybrid cloud management, storage, hyperconverged and more. IBM Turbonomic software provides extensive visibility that helps you understand the relationships between applications and infrastructure and generates automatable actions that prevent performance degradation.
