What is Turbonomic?

Added Friday 11 November 2022

IBM Turbonomic is an AI-powered, technology-agnostic platform that assures application performance with intelligent Application Resource Management (ARM). It ensures an organisation’s applications are always available, compliant, and performing at optimal levels wherever they run, however they’re architected, and whatever the level of user demand.

Multiple layers of abstraction often separate modern applications, making it difficult to understand which underlying server, storage or networking resource supports which application. Turbonomic uses AI to automate critical actions, ensuring each application receives the resources it needs to perform continuously and sustainably, helping organisations avoid disruption and costly overprovisioning.

How Turbonomic Supports Business

In an application-driven world, poor performance can damage both sales and credibility. It also leads to poor productivity, lowers customer satisfaction, and drives up costs. Turbonomic solves modern application challenges for private cloud, public cloud, and Kubernetes by helping businesses optimise application performance for smarter resource management.

A recent Forrester Total Economic Impact Study commissioned by IBM found that organisations using Turbonomic ARM saw a wide range of benefits, including a massive 471% return on investment (ROI), as well as:

  • Almost a 30% reduction in on-premises infrastructure expenditure
  • 33% saving on public cloud consumption spend
  • 50 hours of IT personnel time savings each month
  • Over $2.5 million realised in end-user business benefits annually
  • Improved employee experience and more free time to innovate
  • Greater ability to drive revenue and time to market
  • Improved visibility into application resourcing requirements
  • Reduced carbon footprint to support environmental sustainability goals

Why Turbonomic?

For modern organisations, intelligent and automated resource management is vital, as manual resource management and overallocation are time-consuming, costly, and unsustainable for increasingly complex applications – and as the research figures show, the financial and operational benefits of Turbonomic ARM speak for themselves.

Turbonomic has a range of features that support businesses on their cloud journey, including:

Full-Stack Visualisation

Turbonomic goes beyond visibility and monitoring. It allows businesses to take the guesswork out of providing applications with the resources they need to perform by giving IT teams a holistic view of the entire environment that manages the full application stack.
