Cloud environments bring with them a new set of challenges with lots of additional workload and resource management. Much of the savings gained from cloud deployments comes from reduced resource usage. But this requires well-managed, automated provisioning of applications and workloads and the capability to quickly de-provision, as well, to free up resources when there is no longer a need for the workload or application. If you’re moving to implement cloud support for new workloads and applications, these are important considerations. Workload automation can help.
IBM SmartCloud workload automation capabilities are designed to provide a consistent look and feel that enables unattended workload or application operations, with the provisioning and de-provisioning of cloud resources and infrastructures. Join us for this complimentary webcast as we look at how to gain additional value with improved availability and productivity by automating much of the workload associated with managing applications in a cloud. You can save time and money with SmartCloud workload automation, while simplifying cloud operations.
