Dynamic Transformation Planning is available through CiRBA’s award-winning Control Console for virtual and cloud infrastructure, and enables users to simply “drag and drop” existing VMs and hosts onto new target platforms or environments to assess the suitability and impact of a change. The new capability combines the Control Console with CiRBA’s industry leading transformation analytics, leveraged by Fortune 500 organisations and global tech firms such as CGI, Dell, IBM, Wipro and Unisys in their virtualisation and cloud migration consulting practices.
“In many organisations, existing virtual environments are starting to be considered legacy, and the push toward cloud operational models is intensifying,”
CiRBA’s Control Console enables organisations to manage and control capacity in virtual and cloud environments by providing current and predicted views of infrastructure requirements according to both policy and utilisation requirements. The console enables users to take action and automate its recommendations for optimal VM placements, allocations and capacity decisions in order to reduce infrastructure requirements by 40-70%. Dynamic Transformation Planning adds another dimension to the existing capacity control features by enabling users to rapidly model alternative supply options, such as hardware changes and upgrades, as well as demand changes, such as the migration of workloads to other internal or external environments. These capabilities further extend the ability of the Control Console to increase efficiency and reduce operational risk.
CiRBA Version 7.2 also enhances its capacity control capabilities with the introduction of a new Storage Sensor that when activated provides visibility into used and provisioned datastore capacity status for VMware environments. Users can see which VMs and hosts rely on a particular datastore to understand the impact of shortfalls and can also reserve capacity within the datastores for new VMs coming online through its Bookings capability, giving visibility into future demand for storage.
“CiRBA’s new Storage Sensor seamlessly integrates datastore capacity into the Control Console, enabling visualisation of supply and demand, reservation of storage capacity, and forecasting to better plan for requirements and avoid potential shortfalls,”
