Cirba announces Hewlett Packard Enterprise integration
Cirba has announced the integration of its software-defined infrastructure control analytics with Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Cloud Service Automation software.
The integration of Cirba and HPE Cloud Service Automation software will provide policy controlled and optimal workload placement across private and public cloud including Microsoft Azure, AWS and VMware vSphere and VMware vCloud Air. Additionally, the joint solution will deliver continuous optimisation through predictive workload rebalancing and resource tuning.
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.
The joint solution will enable organisations 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 minimises 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 optimisation recommendations. It’s a great combination.”
