CiRBA has extended its partner program to include streams and license options for both managed infrastructure and cloud service providers.
CiRBA says it helps these organizations to compete more effectively, drive down the cost of infrastructure and service customers better by ensuring performance and service levels.
"We are seeing a significant shift in hosting and managed infrastructure businesses. Cloud is having a huge impact on delivery and contract models. These businesses have to be more focused than ever on driving efficiency gains for their customers," said Chuck Tatham, SVP, business development and marketing, CiRBA. "At the same time they need to provide greater transparency and flexibility through the use of cloud technologies. These shifts necessitate investments in software like ours in order to bring a scientific approach to balancing infrastructure supply and demand and managing operational risk and efficiency."
CiRBA's Automated Capacity Control software enables cloud service providers and outsourcers to more intelligently balance capacity supply and demand and in turn, be more competitive in the market and deliver greater value to their customers, the company said. CiRBA provides total visibility into application demand, including the pipeline of new requests in order to accurately manage supply requirements for compute, storage and network resources.
The software's patented algorithms optimize VM sizing, routing and placement decisions in order to maximize efficiency while mitigating risk. Flexible APIs allow those answers to be fed to other systems in order to automate a significant amount of the daily changes that are required.
