IBM has completed its acquisition of Turbonomic, an Application Resource Management (ARM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) software provider based in Boston, MA. The close of the acquisition complements IBM’s recent acquisition of Instana for application performance monitoring (APM) and observability, and the launch of IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps to automate IT Operations using AI.
It builds on IBM’s growing investment in its ecosystem of business partners, such as Cisco, to help customers accelerate their journey to hybrid cloud and AI. Turbonomic has built and will continue to grow an OEM relationship with Cisco through Cisco Intersight.
Turbonomic capabilities add value to the Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer, providing users with a top-down, application-driven approach to ensure applications continually get the resources they need to perform
In addition, Turbonomic ARM will continue to expand its support for infrastructure and services for all of the major public clouds, including IBM Cloud, and provide recommendations and automation for a wider set of enterprise applications, software and PaaS services.
With this acquisition, IBM will leverage Turbonomic’s NPM products and strong presence in the telecommunications industry to complement its own offerings and expertise in this area, helping customers intelligently optimize applications running in 5G environments.
