Experts from Cirba and IBM to Discuss Software-Defined Infrastructure Control at Private Sector IT Assembly

Session will offer CIOs best practices to densify virtualized environments

Toronto, Ontario – May 4, 2015 – Cirba Inc., the leading provider of software-defined infrastructure control solutions, announced industry experts, Ken Christiance, Distinguished Engineer, IBM, and Riyaz Somani, Co-founder and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, Cirba, will discuss strategies for densifying virtualized and private cloud infrastructure at the Private Sector IT Assembly today, May 4, in Phoenix, Ariz. Christiance will share his own experience in ensuring efficiency in IBM’s managed client infrastructure by leveraging policy-based analytics to balance application demand with infrastructure supply.

Many organizations over-provision hardware and software in virtualized infrastructure to hedge against operational risk. However, this often leads to unexpected performance issues. CIOs and IT leaders from various industries attending this workshop will learn the methods and technologies which lead to a balance of supply and demand, and cost and risk. Key learnings from this session include:

  • Software-defined approaches to enable opportunities for more efficient infrastructure
  • Recommended approaches to demand management which provide the ability to create efficiency and fit for purpose infrastructure
  • Methods to place workloads and align demand to existing supply which lead to significant hardware reductions and software requirements
  • Tips to take advantage of external sources of capacity in a way that makes both operational and financial sense
