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.

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.
Microsoft Ignite and Microsoft Envision are running in Orlando with a 30,000+ crowd and lots of excitement about what's happening both on-premises and in the Azure cloud. The events are split between Ignite, geared towards the cloud + product admins/devs/users, and Envision is targeting the executive teams who are driven the digital transformation initiatives and cloud initiatives. While it may seem a challenge to split out the content and still keep audience counts high, Microsoft is clearing hitting the mark on both sides as each event is flourishing.
Another important milestone for Turbonomic has been achieved with the official release of version 6.2 of the industry-leading workload automation platform for hybrid cloud. Our team has been both listening and leading to the industry through our customers and our growing and excited community. The launch of Turbonomic 6.2 marks another step forward in a well thought out roadmap towards bringing modern workload automation to the full-stack across hybrid environments.
If you are a newcomer to Turbonomic, it is important to have a smooth and quick deployment to let you see just how quickly the value comes from the platform. The launch of Turbonomic 6.1 has kept this in mind as we introduced a new guided deployment wizard.
