As we have mentioned in previous blog posts, organizations struggle with the decision of where to put their workloads. This doesn’t just apply at the server level, but it also very challenging to determine which environments new and existing applications should run in. Spreadsheets are commonly used and to be blunt, these homegrown models just aren’t up to the task.
In January, Cirba released The Reservation Console which enables organization to optimize and automate workload routing decisions. At VMworld 2014, we are very excited to announce that we are extending support for the Reservation Console and the Control Console to include Amazon Web Services and IBM Softlayer!
This means Cirba will be able to determine the best execution venue for applications, whether that is on internal or external infrastructure, while also providing management control and visibility across all enterprise workloads.
Support for Amazon AWS and IBM Softlayer ships starting in December 2014. In the meantime, our CTO & co-founder Andrew Hiller provides an early peek at what’s to come in the video below!
