Cirba brings IBM® Cloud Orchestrator Customers Software-Defined Control over VM Placements

Toronto, Ontario – October 15, 2015 – Cirba Inc., the leading provider of software-defined infrastructure control solutions, today announced its integration to IBM® Cloud Orchestrator. IBM Cloud Orchestrator customers will now be able to leverage Cirba’s predictive, policy-based analytics to gain software-defined control over their environments in order to automate and safely optimize application hosting, workload placement and VM sizing decisions.

Organizations leverage IBM Cloud Orchestrator to accelerate the provisioning of cloud resources and automate associated management tasks. Cirba’s analytics are integrated with the solution to provide intelligent control over VM hosting, placement and sizing actions according to resource requirements, demand patterns, business requirements, operational policies and technical fit. This allows organizations to enable “fit for purpose” infrastructure in order to significantly reduce costs and operational risks across multi-hypervisor, multi-SLA, multi-site virtual and cloud environments.

“As more diverse virtual and cloud hosting options become available, what organizations really require is intelligent automation that is driven by analytics, with a complete world view that includes detailed workload requirements and deep awareness of the capabilities of available infrastructures. Cirba adds this intelligence to the automated provisioning and management capabilities available in IBM Cloud Orchestrator, which together provide incredibly powerful software-defined control for any organization looking to adopt private cloud,” said Andrew Hillier, CTO and co-Founder of Cirba.
