CiRBA Advances Partner Program with Addition of Outsourcers and Cloud Service Provider Categories

CiRBA, a leading provider of Automated Capacity Control software, today announced that it has extended its partner program to include streams and license options for both managed infrastructure (IT outsourcers) and cloud service providers. CiRBA enables these organizations to compete more effectively, drive down the cost of infrastructure, and service customers better by ensuring performance and service levels.

“We are seeing a significant shift in hosting and managed infrastructure businesses. Cloud is having a huge impact on delivery and contract models. These businesses have to be more focused than ever on driving efficiency gains for their customers,” said Chuck Tatham, SVP, Business Development and Marketing of CiRBA. “At the same time they need to provide greater transparency and flexibility through the use of cloud technologies. These shifts necessitate investments in software like ours in order to bring a scientific approach to balancing infrastructure supply and demand and managing operational risk and efficiency.”

CiRBA’s Automated Capacity Control software enables cloud service providers and outsourcers to more intelligently balance capacity supply and demand and in turn, be more competitive in the market and deliver greater value to their customers. CiRBA is unique in its ability to provide total visibility into application demand, including the pipeline of new requests in order to accurately manage supply requirements for compute, storage and network resources. The software’s patented algorithms optimize VM sizing, routing and placement decisions in order to maximize efficiency while mitigating risk. Flexible APIs allow those answers to be fed to other systems in order to automate a significant amount of the daily changes that are required.

“CiRBA’s unique capabilities that span both infrastructure supply and application demand enable our partners to optimize the end to end process of providing infrastructure for their clients. As capacity becomes more commoditized, having granular control is increasingly necessary to compete,” said Tatham.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
