CiRBA Announces Control Console for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0

CiRBA’s new Control Console provides IT organizations with control over risk and efficiency in virtual and cloud infrastructure

CiRBA on Wednesday announced support for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0 in its latest release of CiRBA Version 7.0. CiRBA's new Control Console provides IT organizations with control over risk and efficiency in virtual and cloud infrastructure. The console provides a visualization revealing in a single view where attention is required at the VM, host, and cluster level and explicit instructions on what to do in order to eliminate risk and increase efficiency.

"CiRBA and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization provide a powerful solution for enabling organizations to gain control over virtual infrastructure while significantly reducing its cost," said Chuck Tatham, SVP, Operations and Business Development at CiRBA. "CiRBA's analytics help organizations place workloads and allocate resources in order to safely maximize efficiency and VM density. Organizations benefiting from the efficiency gains provided by CiRBA analytics along with the performance and cost advantages of leveraging Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization-based infrastructure have opportunities to achieve substantial savings on infrastructure over VMware-based alternatives."

Regardless of virtualization platform, most organizations today combat risk in server infrastructure by over-provisioning capacity and over-allocated resources to VMs, significantly increasing the cost of virtualization. CiRBA's Control Console gives organizations the power to set policies for how virtual infrastructure should be managed, then safely eliminate waste  by revealing whether or not VMs, hosts or clusters have "Too Little Infrastructure" (resources in the red band), "Too Much Infrastructure" (resources in the yellow band) or are "Just Right" (resources in the green band). This provides a simple means of understanding what is at risk, what is inefficient, and where action needs to be taken. Infrastructure managers use the Spectrum view and explicit actions provided by CiRBA such as VM moves, VM allocation or capacity changes to work toward a simple goal of moving all of the entities in an environment into the green. CiRBA's analytics model an organization's business and operational policies so that requirements for SLAs, regulations, DR, HA, and other critical criteria are reflected in the actions recommended by the solution.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
