Cirba's Reservation Console
Real-Time Automated Workload Routing Decisions & Capacity Reservations
Cirba's Reservation Console makes routing workloads to the right host environment and reserving capacity as easy as booking a hotel online. Support for hybrid cloud provides the critical decision control point for whether applications reside on internal infrastructure or in the public cloud.
Cirba's Reservation Console is unique in its ability to find the optimal host environment and server placement in real-time for new VM requests based on critical criteria, including workload requirements, technical requirements, operational and business policies, and relative cost in order to meet workload requirements and balance demand. Integrating with your existing self-service request portals or cloud management platforms, Cirba automates new VM routing and reserves capacity for those VMs to guarantee its available when needed.
Track and manage all new VM placement requests from self-service portals, cloud management platforms, migration projects, and release management, capturing details such as:
- Requested resources, utilization, and business, technical, and software requirements
- Packaged integration to VMware® vRealize™ Automation and OpenStack™ enables Cirba to capture demand directly from those cloud management platforms to intelligently route workloads
