IBM Product Briefing
Increasingly, complex applications run your business. And they can run your teams ragged trying to stay ahead of dynamic demand. When application performance drops, you may over provision resource allocations, making costly estimates that often don’t always pay off. To avoid disruption, you might end up provisioning more resources, such as memory, CPU and storage, for your cloud environment than needed, resulting in a bloated cloud bill and a disappointing ROI.
IBM Turbonomic® Application Resource Management (ARM), helps you automate critical actions that proactively deliver the most efficient use of compute, storage and network resources to your apps at every layer of the stack. Continuously, in real time and without human intervention.
With IBM Turbonomic your organization can unlock all of its applications’ potential without impacting your environment by providing:
– Cloud cost optimisation
– Data center optimisation
– Kubernetes optimisation
– Sustainable IT
Key benefits of using IBM Turbonomic include
Ensure optimal application performance while minimising costs with continuous cloud optimisation.
Automatically adjust resources in real-time and resolve bottlenecks; ensuring optimal performance.
Automate processes and eliminate guess work in resourcing applications, freeing up IT teams to focus on strategic priorities.
Predictive analytics and capacity planning enable accurate workload forecasting and proactive decision-making.
Hybrid Cloud Optimisation
Empowers organisations to leverage their hybrid cloud strategy effectiveky, maximising flexibility, scalability, and cost savings.
Leverage existing investments and seamlessly integrate a wide range of software, tools, processes, and workflows to enhance Turbonomic’s powerful capabilities.
- Ease of setup – in the course of a day, Turbonomic can be deployed and start to proactively identifying opportunities
- Place and move – Turbonomic can place and move workloads (VMs, pods) without disruption to avoid performance congestion while consolidating clusters
- Scale actions – generate 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.
- Provision actions – by analysing every layer of the stack, IBM Turbonomic software can tell when you need to suspend or scale out the application as well as underlying infrastructure.
- Reserved instance actions – Turbonomic considers RIs when it generates VM scaling actions, applying cloud reservations you already have and recommending purchasing actions when you need more. Turbonomic tracks rates, coverage, and uptime, and identifies monthly savings opportunities.
Turbonomic and Instana
A major priority for Responsiv and our clients is the shift from traditional ITOps to AIOps. This requires an organisational paradigm shift.
Responsiv bundle the IBM® Turbonomic® and IBM Instana® Observability hybrid cloud cost optimisation solutions to provide clients with a comprehensive view of their entire IT environment; from the application layer down to the infrastructure and its ability to help clients proactively reallocate resources to reduce waste and improve application performance.
No longer rely on disparate monitoring tools and manual intervention to optimise your cloud and on-prem environments.
We will provide you with a full-stack view and AI-powered automation helping to identify resource congestion before the end-user experience is impacted.
Our services include, but are not limited to, multi-cloud management, application performance management, continuous vulnerability, and compliance monitoring, as well as hybrid cloud cost optimisation.
Our typical clients have between 100 and 500 servers, and we maintain environments that are on-premises, in Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS), and on hybrid cloud.
We use IBM Turbonomic and IBM Instana to assure app performance and cut carbon emissions – we start by deploying Turbonomic and turn to Instana to assure application performance during clients’ critical releases.
Ease of deployment and time to value are key. Experience shows that the initial setup of Turbonomic and Instana is simple and immediate. In the course of a single day, both tools can be deployed and start proactively identifying resizing opportunities.
Instana has a single agent that can be installed in a matter of minutes, while Turbonomic can be installed in a matter of hours. Turbonomic provides AI-powered hybrid cloud cost optimization, while Instana provides infrastructure monitoring and observability, each with a full dashboard that is easy to navigate and provides actionable insight right away.
