What if you could turn legacy into legendary?
With the proliferation of cloud platforms promising greater elasticity and savings, many organizations are moving workloads out of existing on-prem data centers. It makes sense if your infrastructure costs are up, utilization is down, and overprovisioning is sideways.
IBM® Turbonomic® Application Resource Management (ARM) can help you reimagine the data center as the next-gen hero of your ecosystem. IBM Turbonomic optimizes your applications’ resourcing levels while dynamically scaling with business demands, automated in real time. You get a more efficient data center and legendary outcomes.
Continuous compute placement
IBM Turbonomic continuously, proactively analyzes the level of app demand and resource supply. It generates automatable actions that reduce the potential for resource congestion, reduce the impact of latency, and safely use all hardware without putting performance at risk.
Safely increase density and avoid resource contention from oversized allocation. When appropriately sizing virtual machines (VMs), IBM Turbonomic considers VM virtual memory, CPU, storage, IOPS and latency as well as demand across the stack to resize up or down the VM.
Continuous storage placement
IBM Turbonomic understands the experience each workload gets from storage, and the relationship storage has to the availability and performance of the underlying array. This enables IBM Turbonomic to optimize the storage device by moving data at the virtualization layer without disrupting performance, or forcing a reconfiguration of the array itself.
Proactive capacity management
IBM Turbonomic uses an accurate view of the real-time environment to simulate changes you define, such as how much physical infrastructure is needed to support growth or migrate workloads. With continuous optimization and automation in place, you can run any simulation your team can dream up.
Optimized super clusters
At any given time, your server clusters probably don’t have a balanced amount of free space. To combat that, IBM Turbonomic enables you to create “super clusters,” or virtual pools that unlock the total cumulative resource amount by allowing workloads to move between clusters when demand increases. This delivers more elasticity, better performance and improved cloud economics right in your data center.
When deploying a new application, you need to know which cluster has available capacity and is compliant with all relevant policies. IBM Turbonomic answers all of these with a single API call and automatically executes the placement through your existing orchestration tools. Integrations with workflow or ticketing tooling such as ServiceNow are also supported.
