We are extremely excited to announce the addition of new features in Turbonomic 6.4 for customers who are running VMware vSAN and VMware hyperconverged environments. With this new integration we are about to profile application resource demand to optimize vSAN performance and ensure that you are getting the most performance and value out of your VMware hyperconverged investment.
Turbonomic 6.4 introduces a variety of new features and integrations. Updates to the VMware Horizon VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) integration are among the new capabilities which have our customers extremely excited to be able to use the Turbonomic Application Resource Management platform to get the most performance and value out of their VMware Horizon deployments.
Turbonomic 6.3 extends our Application Performance Monitoring (APM) integration further through new integration with Dynatrace, alongside Cisco AppDynamics. APM integrations bring rich, application-focused analytics to the Turbonomic analytics engine which are rendered in the user interface. This delivers customers with full-stack topology and the ability to drill down and explore application-specific metrics being pulled from Dynatrace and AppDynamics.
Containerized workloads are rapidly increasing in popularity as a method to deliver and manage infrastructure for cloud-native applications and microservices architectures, which are also rapidly increasing in popularity as a way to build applications.
Autoscaling applications have become a favorite feature in public cloud environments.The challenge is that they are built on the premise of scaling up rapidly at an arbitrarily specified threshold, and scaling down slowly to maintain availability. While this does achieve scaling of applications, there is a better way! On that note, we're incredibly excited to deliver continuous intelligent cloud autoscaling with availability-set awareness. This enhanced capability delivers consistent scaling while simultaneously assuring application performance and resilience in AWS and Azure environments.
We’re very excited to announce new, top-down application-driven capabilities that further empower customers to continuously manage and optimize their workloads in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
There are many variations on the definition of DevOps. The central theme of them all is that DevOps is used to increase the flow of value from idea to prototype, and from prototype to production. It’s a set of processes and behavioural patterns which change the way that development and operations (and hopefully security) teams communicate, interact, and move code through the application lifecycle.
The quest of the modern CIO is much different than it may have been in the not too distant past. Recent years shows that more CIOs are leveraging and even demanding new IT operational models (e.g. Cloud, PaaS) to move from baseline operations to advancing the state of business through IT innovation.
"Two things have always been true about human beings. One, the world is always getting better. Two, the people living at that time think it`s getting worse." - Penn Jillette
If you recall the 90s in IT and business then you probably remember the early introduction of the role dubbed the CIO. Chief Information Officer began as the first crossover role where business was leading technology initiatives which bridged a gap that was very prominent. IT was known then primarily as a cost centre. The necessary evil of an organization that often saw technology as only a minimal part of the success of business initiatives.
