Capacity solution helps businesses optimize OpenStack environments
HOUSTON December 3, 2014 — In today’s digital world, it is imperative for IT to deliver services that are guaranteed to provide the right level of quality and performance and to support business agility. To ensure IT hits the mark, BMC Software is introducing the TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10 solution to extend its current cloud capabilities to the OpenStack platform and to help align IT infrastructure needs with business priorities.
“Businesses are struggling to understand the dynamics of performance within the cloud and need cost-effective and agile solutions to better manage IT infrastructure,” said Tim Grieser, program vice president, enterprise systems management software at IDC. “With the addition of OpenStack cloud support, BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization extends its support for physical and virtual environments and provides a level of overall visibility that allows enterprises to cost effectively leverage cloud resources and tie recommendations directly to business outcomes.”
The BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization solution uses advanced analytics to define the most agile, cost-effective IT architecture based on business goals, capacity usage patterns, predicted growth and planned projects. IT can now expertly manage capacity across all compute environments — physical, virtual, and cloud including data center resources like storage, network and database.
Key new features in TrueSight Capacity Optimization 10 include:
Full-stack Cloud Capacity Management – Visibility has been extended to OpenStack-based private and hybrid clouds to give IT a better grasp on when and where to leverage cloud technology.
Reservation Analytics – Reservation analytics prevents over commitment of reserved resources allowing IT to more accurately plan provisioning and reservations and aligning to expected business growth and new business demand.
“As the hype around technologies such as cloud and virtualization fades, IT is faced with the grim reality of delivering on its promise of agility, staff efficiencies and cost effectiveness,” said Bill Berutti, president of the performance and availability business at BMC. “TrueSight Capacity Optimization helps IT live up to these promises by moving to a proactive approach that helps optimize existing data center assets by improving utilization rates, eliminating the risk of outages and preserving capital budgets. This allows cost savings to be tapped by the business to fund new and innovative digital services.”
“At Sanofi, IT has become a strategic business partner by providing consistent global services. A large part of our success is due to TrueSight Capacity Optimization, which helps us manage global technologies throughout our regional data centers,” said Chris Wimer, global capacity manager at Sanofi. “With this new release, we plan to focus on integrated demand management capabilities to fully understand resource constraints and spare capacity across the enterprise.”
“Moviri leverages BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization to help its enterprise customers’ services run faster, while reducing the cost of IT resources and meeting business demands,” said Renato Bonomini, manager of Moviri Inc. “TrueSight Capacity Optimization makes our work more agile by allowing customers to adapt to rapid business changes by quickly assessing their capacity demands and accurately predict when new capacity must be procured.”
