In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
CiRBA’s Automated Capacity Control Now Supports Microsoft Hyper-V
This new capability is a key addition to CiRBA’s already strong platform support

CiRBA has announced the availability of CiRBA Version 8. With this release, CiRBA adds support for Microsoft® Hyper-V® to its award-winning Control Console, which enables organizations to maximize efficiency and minimize risk in virtual and cloud infrastructure. This new capability is a key addition to CiRBA’s already strong platform support, which includes VMware® ESX®, IBM® PowerVM®, and Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization.

“The shift toward cloud is placing less emphasis on the specific hypervisor technology, and more on the capabilities it provides,” said Andrew Hillier, CTO and co-Founder of CiRBA. “Having a scientific way to make hosting decisions across all hypervisors and hosting platforms really opens up the playing field, and allows organizations to focus on the bigger picture of enterprise-level supply and demand.”

Also now shipping in Version 8 is CiRBA’s new Reservation Console, announced last fall, which automates the entire process of selecting the optimal hosting environment for new workloads and reserving compute and storage capacity. The Reservation Console combines with CiRBA’s cross-platform support to enable CiRBA customers to automate “fit for purpose” placements for new workloads across multi-hypervisor, multi-SLA, multi-site virtual and cloud environments.

Concerns about vendor lock-in and hypervisor costs are driving more and more organizations toward multi-hypervisor adoption. In fact, according to research by Torsten Volk of EMA, 82% of organizations plan to adopt more than one hypervisor.

Multi-hypervisor adoption, particularly within private clouds, can present a significant management challenge for organizations in determining which workloads should be hosted on each respective platform. In order to help combat the complexity, organizations need to change how they make workload placement decisions.

“We currently leverage CiRBA from a cross-platform capacity control perspective. As we seek to automate and more closely balance infrastructure supply with the demands of the business, the capabilities found in CiRBA Version 8, and specifically coverage of even more hypervisor technologies, will be a welcome addition,” said Matt McCarter, server engineering lead of McKesson Corporation.

CiRBA’s Hyper-V® support spans the entire scope of CiRBA functionality. Within the Control Console, organizations use it to achieve daily operational control over VM placements, and create predictive, forward looking views incorporating capacity reservations for new workloads providing unmatched accuracy in forecasting requirements. Within the new Reservation Console, the addition of Hyper-V® can have a significant impact on workload routing decisions, and clearly exposes the relative advantages of different hypervisors from a cost and fit for purpose perspective.

“Organizations are keeping their options open, and our new release removes a lot of the barriers that would prevent multiple hypervisors and cloud technologies from being adopted,” continued Hillier. “We are very excited to bring this new level of operational control and automation to Hyper-V® infrastructure, making it an even more viable option.”
