Reportedly, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) announced the closing of its acquisition of Turbonomic, Inc., an Application Resource Management (ARM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) software provider based in Boston, MA. The recent closure complements IBM’s recent acquisition of Instana for application performance monitoring and observability, along with the launch of IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps to automate IT Operations using AI.
IBM offers its customers AI-powered automation capabilities that range from AIOps, the use of AI to automate IT Operations to application-centric performance and IT resources observability, built on Red Hat OpenShift to run on any hybrid cloud environment. The close of the acquisition adds on IBM’s increasing investment in its ecosystem of business partners, such as Cisco, to help customers accelerate their journey to hybrid cloud and AI.
Turbonomic ARM will assist to expand its support for infrastructure and services for all of the major public clouds, including IBM Cloud, and also provide recommendations and automation for a wider set of enterprise applications, PaaS services, and software.
“Today, applications run the business. Turbonomic’s Application Resource Management assures application performance and governance so customers can focus on innovation. IBM’s acquisition of Turbonomic now helps us reach and serve more customers globally – enabling successful application hosting operations across any cloud environment,” stated Ben Nye, CEO, Turbonomic.
As the use of the hybrid cloud continues to grow, companies go through high costs associated with managing performance and availability for multiple applications and sharing an increasingly complex hybrid cloud environment.
The acquisition highlights IBM’s focus on providing organizations with a one-stop-shop of AI-powered automation capabilities for business and IT all built on Red Hat OpenShift. Over the last year, IBM has taken bold steps including acquisitions of Turbonomic, myInvenio, Instana, and WDG Automation; ecosystem partnerships; and organic R&D including the launch of Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps and IBM Watson Orchestrate.
