Turbonomic Debuts New ‘SMART’ Workload and Application-Aware Infrastructure Innovations

Latest Release Extends Turbonomic’s Lead in Multi-Cloud Management
for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure Environments

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Turbonomic,
the leader in workload automation for hybrid cloud, today announced new,
top-down application-driven capabilities that further empower customers
to continuously manage and optimize their workloads in hybrid and
multi-cloud environments. As organizations prioritize digital
transformation initiatives, enterprises of all sizes are deploying
varied and complex infrastructure, often including multiple clouds and
containers. With its latest software platform release, Turbonomic is
helping customers assure application performance at the lowest cost
while ensuring policy compliance.

According to Gartner, infrastructure and operations leaders are
beginning to build IT strategies with a focus on their application
portfolios rather than on the physical infrastructure, moving away from
traditional IT architecture-driven decisions toward a service-driven
strategy.1

With today’s news, because Turbonomic automatically matches workload
demand to infrastructure supply both on-premises and in the cloud, the
platform is accelerating cloud and cloud-native adoption:

  • Intelligent Cloud Autoscaling: Enhanced, continuous
    intelligent cloud autoscaling with availability-set awareness delivers
    customers consistent scaling while simultaneously assuring application
    performance and resilience in AWS and Azure environments. Applications
    managed by Turbonomic scale based on actual workload demand versus
    static thresholds that do not guarantee performance.
  • Reserved Instance (RI) Enhancements: New enhancements assure
    cloud workload performance while also maximizing both RI coverage and
    utilization. These new capabilities deliver the ability to accurately
    plan ahead to make accurate decisions as to which workloads should
    utilize reserved capacity and when those RIs should be purchased in
    order to assure performance while minimizing public cloud spend.
  • Kubernetes: Enhanced Kubernetes integration enables customers
    to realize optimal performance and consolidation benefits of
    intelligent workload automation in their Kubernetes deployments.
    Turbonomic’s management of performance, compliance and cost tradeoffs
    are critical to achieving production-ready Kubernetes. New platform
    enhancements identify opportunities to consolidate Kubernetes
    workloads while continuing to assure performance and maintain
    compliance. This enhancement is part of the real-time optimization, as
    well as planned simulations.

One of the world’s largest financial and professional services firms
turned to Turbonomic’s AI-powered platform to operate at the increasing
speed of business. The customer is an early user of Turbonomic’s new,
intelligent cloud autoscaling feature, which is expected to deliver near
immediate ROI on top of the over $3 million in annual savings that the
platform has already delivered to the organization and is being invested
to further accelerate its Azure cloud migration and adoption.

These new capabilities deliver cloud customers with enhanced cloud
migration experiences – and once in the cloud, continuous optimization.

Another Turbonomic customer, a global Fortune 500 bank, is using
Turbonomic to accelerate its adoption of cloud-native infrastructure in
order increase speed-to-market for digital services. Automating the
decision-making process associated with dynamic workloads is critical to
its success. The bank currently has tens of thousands of containers in
production, in addition to containers also running in its development
environment. Turbonomic’s trustworthy decision engine is enabling the
bank’s IT staff to automate management that has become exponentially
complex.

Additionally, Turbonomic bridges the application-to-infrastructure chasm
through Turbonomic’s application-aware decisions, which correlate
infrastructure configuration to real-time application performance
through alignment and integration with leading Application Performance
Monitoring (APM) vendors, including Cisco
AppDynamics
. These capabilities deliver customers full stack,
multidimensional visibility of an application-aware infrastructure, and
further Turbonomic’s position as the industry’s only, application-aware
workload automation platform.

According to Stephen Elliot, Program Vice President, Enterprise System
Management Software at IDC: “Growth in APM is being driven by the need
to manage application performance throughout the application life cycle
from DevOps to production operations to ensure that end-user experience
meets competitive quality standards. End-user satisfaction with
application performance and reliability is critical for successful
digital business operations.”2

“By applying the economic principles of supply and demand to manage IT
resources, the Turbonomic platform automatically matches workload demand
with infrastructure supply – on-premises and in the cloud,” said Charles
Crouchman, Chief Technology Officer at Turbonomic. “The platform’s new
cloud and container capabilities further extend our lead as the
industry’s only single-platform that optimizes workloads spanning any
environment.”
