Turbonomic Showcases Workload Automation for Hybrid Cloud at Cisco Live Europe

Grazed from Turbonomic

Turbonomic, which delivers workload automation for hybrid cloud, announced details of its platinum-level sponsorship of Cisco Live at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona. Experts from Turbonomic will demonstrate the latest technologies for automating and optimizing today's complex hybrid cloud infrastructures at booth P1. 

By 2020, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud (LogicMonitor,'Cloud Vision 2020: The Future of the Cloud Study'). This transformation introduces an ever-increasing set of complex tradeoffs for IT staff, such as whether to place workloads on-premises or public cloud, when and how to scale up or scale out workloads, and what resources to allocate without overprovisioning. To de-risk this transformation, IT organizations are turning to self-managing and real-time workloads. Ben Nye, CEO at Turbonomic, will explain how to use workload automation to optimize hybrid cloud estates at the C-Max Theatre on Thursday 1st February at 14:30 CET. In this session, Nye will also discuss how Turbonomic and Cisco are working together to assure application performance at the lowest cost, while maintaining compliance policies across hybrid cloud estates.
