Automation for virtual, private cloud and software-defined infrastructure

Cirba for Cloud, Virtualization,
and Server Architects and Engineers – Enabling Automation

Cirba provides software-defined control for virtual and private cloud infrastructure through its policy- based analytics. It fills a critical gap in cloud management platforms by automating the routing of new workloads to the best possible hosting environment and making the associated capacity reservations for compute and storage resources.

"We're building our private cloud using VMware technologies, but they only provide part of the solution we need. Cirba fills critical gaps by enabling us to intelligently route and place VMs and automate those processes."

Cirba provides a comprehensive model of compute, storage, network, and resource requirements by examining utilization requirements, policy, capacity reservations, and technical considerations to provide accurate resource planning and forecasting.

"VM placements are key to reducing the hardware and software requirements in our infrastructure. Only Cirba understands how to make these placements in order to maximize efficiency. And only Cirba incorporates capacity reservations accurately to model forward-looking views of infrastructure requirements."

Cirba for IT Executives – Measuring Efficiency

Allocate Resources

Only Cirba provides the software-defined control required to truly optimize and automate virtual, private cloud, and software-defined infrastructure. Our customers improve infrastructure efficiency by 40 to 70% without introducing risk by intelligently routing workloads to the right host infrastructure, increasing density, and reducing infrastructure requirements through optimal VM placements and accurately modeling overall infrastructure requirements leveraging capacity reservations. Imagine knowing that you have the perfect amount of infrastructure to satisfy SLA and policy requirements, without having too much and that your workloads are optimally placed and configured to ensure low risk operations. This is the power of Cirba.

"Through the Cirba Efficiency Index, I now have a way of understanding how efficient our operations really are. Cirba's ability to accurately measure efficiency and then provide recommendations and a clear path to increasing efficiency has helped our organization increase density and save millions in hardware, storage, and software licensing."

Cirba for Cloud Service Providers

Cirba's Software Defined Infrastructure Control is transforming the way leading cloud service providers manage and provision capacity for customers. Rather than the model of old where excess capacity was a cost of doing business, progressive organizations are treating capacity supply scientifically and provisioning no more than what is actually needed. Balancing supply with demand ensures the most cost-effective infrastructure, lower price points and more profit.

"We are able to rapidly and confidently place customer workloads such that we are efficient and profitable while ensuring tiered services
levels and stability."
