Automating Complex Routing & Bursting Decisions to External Cloud
Large enterprises have hundreds of new workload placement requests each month, and yet they currently rely on very rudimentary, manual means of determining which internal or external infrastructure option is an appropriate hosting environment for a given application. Released in
Now, with support for AWS and IBM Softlayer, the Reservation Console enables broader and more complex hosting decisions. This includes the ability to determine the fit-for-purpose of public clouds for specific workloads, as well as temporary cloud bursting, where customers can effectively leverage external resources for cyclical requirements by identifying which workloads are appropriate to be moved and where.
“Without analytics to assess application requirements against infrastructure capabilities, organizations cannot make smart decisions about how to leverage their own internal infrastructure resources, let alone expand into external cloud,” said
“Even the most sophisticated spreadsheets and manual processes are fundamentally incapable of answering the complex question of where to host workloads.
Gaining Visibility and Control over All Enterprise Workloads
Through its new integration to public clouds, Cirba’s award-winning Control Console is also targeting hybrid scenarios by providing centralized management for enterprise applications across physical, virtual, private cloud and external cloud environments.
For internal infrastructure, Cirba’s Control Console provides an intuitive visualization of whether sufficient or excess resources exist at the environment, cluster, host and VM, datastore, physical storage, resource pools levels and can automate detailed recommendations to remediate any issues. Users can also achieve application-centric or department-oriented views of the information to ensure appropriate resourcing across business lines.
With the upcoming release,
Hillier added, “Having a centralized policy-based control system for managing hybrid cloud is critical. Determining where a workload should be hosted and how resources are assigned to is fundamental to modern IT infrastructure, and doing this automatically is the very heart of cloud and software-defined operational models. It cannot be left to manual processes, opinions and best guesses.”
