Optimize and plan your data center and cloud resources

Visibility and insights into the technology resources that run your business services


Technology resources, on premises or cloud, fuel your business and innovation. Do you have the right resources to satisfy business and customer expectations? Without insights into the risk, efficiency, and cost of your technology resources, business services and budget can be disrupted.

  • Single view of the health of business services across the enterprise, classified by level of importance
  • Insights into the risk, efficiency, and cost of the resources running a business service
  • Self-service dashboards and custom views that keep stakeholders informed of the state of technology resources running their business services, applications or environments
  • Exception-based reporting that alerts on anomalous conditions that could lead to business interruption

Optimize your technology resources and reduce costs


IT budgets never seem to get bigger. So it’s important to make the most of your IT investments and budget to run your business and prepare for the future. Use machine learning and automation to optimize resources and lower costs.

  • Right-size on premises and cloud resources with automated recommendations and visualize before and after usage models
  • Terminate and reclaim unused resources based on automated recommendations with historical explanation of resource use
  • Adjust resource configurations with predictive saturation alerts and notifications
  • Resolve resource constraints using business KPIs and prevent business service disruption

Plan for changes in business demand and future innovations


Continuous delivery requires planning. Ensure you have the technology resources to run your business today and tomorrow.

  • Simulate workload migrations to cloud with right-sized recommendations along with cost and performance comparisons
  • Plan for changes in business demand with correlation analysis using business KPIs
  • Model “what-if” scenarios like decommissioning resources, changes or upgrades in resources, or validating disaster recovery scenarios
  • Reserve resources for new applications and business services with a calendar view of committed and available resources
