We are proud to share in an announcement here on our extended partnership with the Microsoft Azure team with the addition of support for Azure VMware Service (AVS). Turbonomic and Microsoft have been working together, along with our customers, to address the challenges that are being felt as the shifting workload deployment patterns change as customers make the jump to leveraging cloud-based alternatives to the traditional on-premises private cloud platforms.
Ever felt like building a pipeline to help you with your application deployment process? It's not as difficult as you'd think and we are going to show you just how easy it is! In this blog, we will talk about how to set up a super quick code pipeline and get started with Red Hat OpenShift, so that you can be deploying faster than ever before!
This will be an end-to-end walkthrough of setting up a simple application with code hosted on Github that you can deploy into OpenShift yourself to give you a primer on the ease-of-administration when it comes to getting applications from idea to working prototype without a single SSH or FTP session required.
It's no secret that the cloud has been a disruptive technology, and as it is still an emerging field of computing in relative terms of the age of some services, there are many misconceptions about what multi-cloud infrastructure really means. Whether you're considering going all-in on one provider or spreading your data across providers for higher availability, we'll cover some of the truths and myths behind this exciting new way to build out your IT infrastructure.
How many times do you revisit your IT architecture? One of the things that the public cloud has helped us to do is to revisit not just our architecture, but ways we can infuse some of the new processes into our existing IT platforms.
How many times do you get a call from the help desk about some application being slow or down? More than you would like, I’m sure. The more troubling part is that they call about some business application (or many of them) that are affected and now you have to chase down what the underlying root cause of the issue is.
It may sound bold to think that a simple Linux utility can be life changing. In a world of remote access and remote administration this nifty little program just got a whole lot more valuable. How often have you found that you want to run some long-running task on a remote server and your connection fails because of a timeout or just forgetting you had a remote session open? (hint: it happens to me a lot).
How many times have you been chasing between tools and products to find out what is going on in your environment? We have seen incredible results with our Turbonomic Application Resource Management (ARM) across thousands of environments, and a few very interesting use-cases kept coming up that customers were experiencing.
Application performance and resource availability is critical both in real-time and over time. You already have the power of application response time in the real-time environment with Turbonomic whether with our own APEX capabilities or with our APM partners including Cisco AppDynamics, Dynatrace, New Relic, AppInsights, direct app targeting for SQL servers and web applications.
What if you could have that same insight of the relationship between resources and the application and infrastructure performance and availability with highly granular data, over a 13-month history?
As we talked about in the first blog about, we have our new Application Performance Extensibility (APEX) features that have been introduced for your Turbonomic 8 platform:
- Application Technology Definition (ATD) – brand new ability to define your business applications and services using a wide variety of dynamic criteria
- Data Ingestion Framework (DIF) – open-source declarative framework for creating customizable entities in Turbonomic ARM
The DIF is a very powerful and flexible framework which enables the ingestion of many diverse data, topology, and information sources to further DIFferentiate (see what I did there) the Turbonomic platform in what it can do for you.
Imagine now that you get a call from the application operations team or the help desk and they tell you “customers are calling because the website is really slow”. Now what? Well, it’s actually not a problem if you have Turbonomic!
With Turbonomic 8, we have an amazing set of new capabilities that solve this problem for you in more than one way. Our new application-centric user experience has proven to be very popular with the ability to automatically propagate application and infrastructure risk visibility for all of your applications by showing you all the dependent infrastructure and service resources.
