IBM Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure and the Trellis™ Platform
The strategic partnership of the Trellis™ platform and IBM's Cloud and Smarter Infrastructure solutions combines DCIM and IT service management capabilities to enable the management of the data center as an ecosystem. Now, facilities resource consumption can be optimized in real time based on IT application demand, resource availability and service level requirements.
The result: significantly enhanced operational efficiencies, service quality and service management across all data center IT and facilities resources.
The combined solution will enable data center managers to understand the true costs of running an application, calculate its resource demands in real time, and dynamically provision physical and logical resources to support the application efficiently and cost-effectively. Overall, data center infrastructure becomes more relevant and more aligned with business priorities. With immediate access to actionable data and metrics, such as Watts per workload, facilities can reduce the cost of running IT.
With real-time visibility across IT and facilities, customers can:
- Overcome critical challenges in energy efficiency
- Improve asset and space management
- Optimize availability
- Increase operational agility
- Improve service quality and performance
