How Adaptive Computing Guarantees SLAs
October 03, 2012
Service Level Agreements (SLA) are critical to business performance, as they manage performance tracking information and provide system feedback on service agreements across a variety of a company’s departments. SLAs allow you to quantify the level of service you receive within your organization, as well as from service contracts with outside vendors.
Further, SLAs help you to determine if your resources are available when you need them.
Needless to say, it’s important to that know when a power outage occurs for a resource specified in a service agreement, your provider will be there to handle it.
Adaptive Computing, an esteemed provider of private cloud management solutions, takes this critical business aspect head on by guaranteeing SLAs for its users. Its flagship Moab Solution works to provide grained modeling of workload and organizational SLAs and priorities to automate complex decisions and actions so that you’re not limiting your ability to optimize the complexities of a cloud environment, according to Jill King, director of Marketing Communications at Adaptive.
Some additional features and functionalities of Moab:
- Provides IT with powerful controls to accelerate and touchlessly automate decisions across large scale environments
- Ability to enforce thousands of customer policies
- Frees IT from slow and inconsistent repetitive manual decisions and processes
- Surpasses other orchestrators who provide only basic, one-dimensional decisions (which usually crumble)
Furthermore, the company’s Auto VM Overcommit migration policies intelligently migrate live VM workloads from resources as they become overloaded due to usage, thus exceeding hypervisor SLA thresholds to avoid service performance issues and curb the risk of any business disruption.
Additional features and functionalities of the company’s signature Moab Cloud Suite:
- Continual monitoring of resource workloads throughout their lifecyle
- True, touchless service optimization, as Moab makes both the decision to migrate and then initiates the migration
- The Moab intelligence engine identifies VMs at performance/SLA risk as based on policy settings and resource usage load, as well as identifies where they can be moved to for more optimal performance (resource requirements and load usage considered)
Additionally, Moab automatically initiates migration actions via its management tools to offer more optimal hypervisors to guarantee target SLAs and performance levels.
At the end of the day, you want – and need – a provider who guarantees SLAs in the case of a failure in order to protect yourself from potential future occurrences, as well as limit the economic impact it could have. When choosing Adaptive Computing’s Moab solution, you simply can’t go wrong.
