BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - Turbonomic, the autonomic cloud platform, will be demonstrating new cloud native capabilities at AWS re:Invent 2016, booth 1944. With most of Turbonomic's over 1600 customers adopting or preparing to adopt the cloud, Turbonomic aims to ensure their success as they do so. These extensions to the platform, as well as the recent partnership with RiverMeadow Software, are only the latest examples of Turbonomic's commitment to enabling customers to confidently accelerate their cloud strategies.
Turbonomic provides organizations leveraging elastic compute in the cloud the ability to scale while assuring app performance and minimizing cloud costs. Traditionally, AWS users must determine EC2 placement, sizing, and autoscaling manually, often relying on 3rd-party or homegrown automation scripts to scale. An autonomic cloud platform elevates humans from this cumbersome process by enabling EC2 instances to self-manage.
Turbonomic also enables more organizations to reap the benefits of Kubernetes at scale. The autonomic platform enables Pods and EC2 instances to self-manage, significantly minimizing the operational lift and expertise typically required to run Kubernetes. With Turbonomic, users can fully leverage this powerful open source container-cluster manager, controlling heterogeneous, highly-dynamic environments at scale.
Further, Turbonomic is announcing a partnership with RiverMeadow Software, a leading provider of cross-hypervisor, Lift & Shift server migration. RiverMeadow's SaaS offering automates the migration of physical, virtual and cloud-based servers into and between public, private and hybrid clouds.
"Performance fine-tuning and cloud migration are two significant friction points that enterprises are faced with when migrating servers to Cloud," says Richard Scannell, President & CEO of RiverMeadow Software. "The RiverMeadow-Turbonomic partnership removes this friction. It arms customers with the analytics necessary to make smart business decisions on where to house their servers and applications while providing them with automated migration at scale and real-time self-management." Together, Turbonomic and RiverMeadow Software enable customers to accelerate cloud migrations by assuring application performance across hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.
The RiverMeadow partnership and Turbonomic's cloud native capabilities are only the most recent examples of the promise of autonomic intelligence. In November 2015, Verizon and Turbonomic jointly announced Intelligent Cloud Control. Powered by Turbonomic, ICC drives real-time, automatable, price-, performance- and compliance-based placement decisions, as well as sizing and configuration decisions to deploy and migrate workloads to and across CSPs. In October 2016, Turbonomic announced Cloud Cost Compare, a free service which, after input of the details of your application, tells you where your application should run based on performance and cost.
"Customers are eager to leverage public clouds for the agility and go-to-market benefits the cloud enables. Whether IT decision-makers take a hybrid- or multi-cloud approach, Turbonomic is committed to providing the autonomic platform that enables the production-grade delivery of their vision," said Turbonomic VP of Advanced Engineering, Endre Sara. "Our efforts over the last year are just the beginning."
In 2009 Turbonomic's founders set out to create a platform that controls any workload on any infrastructure. That mission to transform the industry with autonomic intelligence has even greater relevance as organizations leverage multiple clouds-each with their own ecosystem of tools and services-to deliver IT services.
Turbonomic delivers an autonomic platform where virtual and cloud environments self-manage in real-time to assure application performance. Turbonomic's patented decision engine dynamically analyzes application demand and allocates shared resources to maintain a continuous state of application health.
Launched in 2010, Turbonomic is one of the fastest growing technology companies in the virtualization and cloud space. Turbonomic's autonomic platform is trusted by thousands of enterprises to accelerate their adoption of virtual, cloud, and container deployments for all mission critical applications.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
