Turbonomic Demonstrated Cloud Capabilities at AWS re:Invent 2016

Turbonomic, the autonomic cloud platform, demonstrated new cloud native capabilities at AWS re:Invent 2016. With most of Turbonomic's over 1600 customers adopting or preparing to adopt the cloud, Turbonomic aims to ensure their success as they do so. These extensions to the platform, as well as the recent partnership with RiverMeadow Software, are only the latest examples of Turbonomic's commitment to enabling customers to confidently accelerate their cloud strategies.

Turbonomic provides organizations leveraging elastic compute in the cloud the ability to scale while assuring app performance and minimizing cloud costs. Traditionally, AWS users must determine EC2 placement, sizing, and autoscaling manually, often relying on 3rd-party or homegrown automation scripts to scale. An autonomic cloud platform elevates humans from this cumbersome process by enabling EC2 instances to self-manage.

Turbonomic also enables more organizations to reap the benefits of Kubernetes at scale. The autonomic platform enables Pods and EC2 instances to self-manage, significantly minimizing the operational lift and expertise typically required to run Kubernetes. With Turbonomic, users can fully leverage this powerful open source container-cluster manager, controlling heterogeneous, highly-dynamic environments at scale.

Further, Turbonomic is announcing a partnership with RiverMeadow Software, a leading provider of cross-hypervisor, Lift & Shift server migration. RiverMeadow's SaaS offering automates the migration of physical, virtual and cloud-based servers into and between public, private and hybrid clouds.

"Performance fine-tuning and cloud migration are two significant friction points that enterprises are faced with when migrating servers to Cloud," says Richard Scannell, President & CEO of RiverMeadow Software. "The RiverMeadow-Turbonomic partnership removes this friction. It arms customers with the analytics necessary to make smart business decisions on where to house their servers and applications while providing them with automated migration at scale and real-time self-management." Together, Turbonomic and RiverMeadow Software enable customers to accelerate cloud migrations by assuring application performance across hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.

The RiverMeadow partnership and Turbonomic's cloud native capabilities are only the most recent examples of the promise of autonomic intelligence. In November 2015, Verizon and Turbonomic jointly announced Intelligent Cloud Control. Powered by Turbonomic, ICC drives real-time, automatable, price-, performance- and compliance-based placement decisions, as well as sizing and configuration decisions to deploy and migrate workloads to and across CSPs. In October 2016, Turbonomic announced Cloud Cost Compare, a free service which, after input of the details of your application, tells you where your application should run based on performance and cost.

"Customers are eager to leverage public clouds for the agility and go-to-market benefits the cloud enables. Whether IT decision-makers take a hybrid- or multi-cloud approach, Turbonomic is committed to providing the autonomic platform that enables the production-grade delivery of their vision," said Turbonomic VP of Advanced Engineering, Endre Sara. "Our efforts over the last year are just the beginning."
