We are excited to be a part of the return to an in-person Cisco Live next week! From June 13–16th, technology innovators from all over will gather to learn and share ways of fueling the digital future. This is a special event for us as this will be our first presence as Turbonomic, an IBM Company.
We are excited to announce that Turbonomic supports horizontal scaling of cloud native application services as well as the underlying compute resources based on customer experience Service Level Objectives (SLOs). Released with 8.4.4, this feature is a huge step in supporting our customers who have modernized their business-critical applications to deliver great customer experiences while increasing elasticity. Too often organizations find themselves scaling microservices based on default utilization metrics and, unable to correlate autoscaling at the application layer with the underlying compute, spending a significant amount of labor setting triggers and policies that ultimately limit elasticity. With Turbonomic the investment in modern, cloud native microservices achieves elasticity that simultaneously benefits your bottom-line, customer experience, and even your sustainability goals.
Data centers globally use an estimated 200 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity each year. If the collective data centers of the world were a country, it would rank #23 on a list of highest electricity consumers by nation.

Enterprise companies can save up to 70% on compute costs by committing to short- or long-term usage. So why aren’t all businesses using Reserved Instances for their applications? The reason is that purchasing, renewing, and managing the usage or coverage of Reserved Instances is extremely complex.
When the ecommerce industry boomed in the early 2000s it ushered in the API era. Information was being shared at a rapid pace and businesses realized they could use this data to improve digital experiences. The Application Programming Interface (API) created a way for information in one application to be easily available to other applications, allowing developers and programmers to transform the customer experience.
There is no doubt that sustainability has quickly become a top business initiative – regardless of industry, company size, or geography. We are excited to launch this first blog as a part of an upcoming series that will cover the most pressing challenges, opportunities, best practices, and first steps for organizations on their path towards green IT.
