Toronto, Ontario – December 6, 2016 - Today, Cirba Inc. announced the integration of its software-defined infrastructure control analytics with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Cloud Service Automation software to deliver unprecedented VM density, flexibility and automation. Cloud Service Automation is part of the new Hybrid Cloud Management suite, and HPE customers running hybrid cloud deployments will benefit from Cirba’s industry leading predictive optimization and workload placement analytics.
The integration of Cirba and HPE Cloud Service Automation software provides:
The integration creates an advanced hybrid cloud ecosystem that provides high agility, high automation, high workload density and enterprise-class governance across the lifecycle of an application or business service, and brings together several key products:
As part of the integration, Cirba and HPE have jointly developed an HPE Reference Configuration for Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Using Cirba, HPE Cloud System Automation and HPE OneView. This reflects proven deployment best practices, and guides customers in the deployment of the HPE and Cirba products to enable critical hybrid cloud management functions:
The joint solution enables organizations to achieve agility and real-time cloud provisioning, while at the same time adding enterprise-class governance and control over application hosting decisions. When used in combination with HPE servers, HPE storage and cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure, this not only minimizes the unit cost of hosting workloads, but also reduces capacity-related risk by performing detailed analysis of workload patterns to enable predictive alignment of infrastructure supply and application demand.
"Customers want the optimal combination of public and private cloud from both a performance and cost perspective," said Rahul Tripathi, vice president of product management for IT Operations Management, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "Integrating Cirba's analytics with HPE’s leading Hybrid Cloud solutions enhances our ability to deliver tremendous efficiency and operational control."
"HPE's OneView and Cloud Service Automation are a natural integration point for Cirba," said Gerry Smith, CEO of Cirba Inc. "On top of offering industry leading converged infrastructure, HPE provides a brilliant automation management platform for automating Cirba's workload placement and optimization recommendations. It’s a great combination."
The reference configuration is available and can be downloaded from HPE’s Enterprise Library.
