Five capabilities to integrate capacity management for your private/hybrid cloud and boost results

Enterprises who have made the move to cloud—or who are looking to add cloud to their data center operations—need cloud management tools that will enable them to integrate management across all layers of their private or hybrid cloud stacks from the infrastructure to the services. This is critical if enterprise IT is to ensure that cloud lives up to its promises of meeting SLAs, policies and changing demand. Many organizations lack the integrated cloud management maturity to handle these challenges with tools such as SLA monitoring, a unified self-service catalog, dynamic capacity management, usage based cost analysis, or integrated automation and orchestration across the full stack.   Without these integrated management tools, it is nearly an impossible task for IT to be able to optimize and ensure the benefits are delivered to their business consumers from the cloud environment across all the layers of physical, virtual and internal and external service abstraction.

Getting a handle on both capacity management and services cost visibility are key enablers to optimize your private and public cloud resources.  The right cloud management tools allow you the ability to manage down through the hybrid cloud stack layers, from the services to the infrastructure. Five key advanced capabilities you should consider adding to your cloud management toolset include:

  1. Right-sizing of VMs which maximizes utilization by suggesting how VMs can be properly sized to be more capacity efficient based on historical resource usage trends and available capacity. Solutions like HPE Helion Cloud Suite provide this with the included HPE Cloud Optimizer tool— and its integration with HPE Cloud Service Automation—enabling cloud consumers to use these recommendations, releasing unused resources to reduce cost and free capacity.
