Cirba Announces 5 Steps to Understanding the Hidden Dangers of Reactive IT Control Systems

Toronto, Ontario – March 31, 2016 – Cirba Inc., the leading provider of software-defined infrastructure control software, today announced the availability of a five step guide to help organizations understand the dangers of using reactive controls to place applications and allocate resources.

Reactive control systems are simplistic, using limited data to perform critical tasks such as load balancing. They lack the intelligence to proactively prevent performance issues or optimize infrastructure. In fact, because of their limited view of the environment being constrained to recent data, these tools have been proven to actually create problems including excessive VM motioning and application performance issues.
