Let’s unlock real business outcomes with automation you can trust
The first driver of an automatic-shift car no doubt wondered if this newfangled thing would stop on command. It can be a bumpy road to embracing innovation, and trust is a big factor. Introducing automation into your dynamic IT operations for application resource management (ARM) is no different.
IBM® Turbonomic® is the only platform that provides actions you can trust to automate continuously. When intelligent software acts automatically, you gain the value of speed, scale, efficiency and cost reduction.
Journey to automation
Automate at your own pace
Once you’ve learned the details of recommended resourcing actions, automating the task isn’t an all-or-nothing proposition. You retain control over which to integrate into your approval, DevOps, or communications workflows and which to allow IBM Turbonomic to handle with full, continuous automation.
Place and move actions
IBM Turbonomic can non-disruptively place and move workloads (VMs, pods) to avoid performance congestion while consolidating clusters.
IBM Turbonomic software generates vertical and horizontal scaling actions based on real-time application demand. With automation, VMs, containers, databases and storage are always appropriately sized. Horizontally scalable applications are elastically scaled to meet demand.
By understanding every layer of the stack, the IBM Turbonomic automation knows when you need to suspend or scale out the application (for example, provision pods) as well as the underlying infrastructure (such as provision nodes, VMs or hyperconverged nodes).
Reserved instance actions
IBM Turbonomic considers RIs when generating VM scaling actions, applying cloud reservations you already have and recommending purchasing actions when you need more. The software tracks rates, coverage and uptime and identifies monthly savings opportunities.
Automating responses to performance issues means you’re able to comply with service levels without impacting clients.
Reduced manual labor
Your team will spend less time monitoring and allocating resources, freeing them up to focus on more critical projects.
IBM Turbonomic automatically addresses resource underutilization and overprovisioning, enabling a more cost-effective infrastructure.
