Key Features & Benefits
Defining specific QoS levels for mission-critical applications makes tiers or dedicated resources unnecessary.
Elevate discussions about delivering on specific QoS instead of arbitrary infrastructure sizing or configuration.
Elevate the Conversation with App Owners
With Turbonomic, your conversation with application owners is elevated to a discussion about delivering on a specific quality of service instead of arbitrary infrastructure sizing or configuration.
No More Tiers, No More Wasted Resources
Defining specific QoS levels for mission-critical applications makes tiers or dedicated resources unnecessary. These applications can exist alongside their less critical counterparts, maximizing the benefits of shared resources, while assuring QoS levels
Resource Allocation Based on SLA Adherence
When a QoS goal is defined for applications (all or some), for example 500 ms latency or 1,000 transactions per minute, Turbonomic applies its market abstraction to take care of the rest. QoS levels are simply another dimension that Turbonomic uses to refine an environment’s healthiest state.
How It Works
Turbonomic abstracts the data center as a marketplace of buyers and sellers. Applications buy virtual resources from containers or VMs and sell QoS to the business. Meanwhile, containers and VMs sell the virtual resource to the applications and buy infrastructure resources (compute, storage, network).
The price of resources is a function of the resources utilization: the higher the utilization of a resource, the higher its price. Data center entities shop for the best deal they can get for what they consume.
Applications sell QoS and the more QoS is “utilized” (i.e. the QoS is trending closer to its specified goal), the higher its price and as a result the higher the revenue the application is making. The higher the revenue the application has, the higher its buying power, and the more resources it can afford – even if the resources are congested and as a result very expensive. As a result, these applications will always have the buying power required to buy the compute, storage, and network resources they need to meet QoS levels.

The Data Center’s n-Dimensional Problem
Virtualized infrastructure is an n-dimensional universe of potential resource states with infinite possibilities of states. Finding the Desired State among all these possibilities is an n-dimensional challenge. QoS is simply another dimension that refines the Desired State.Get Free eBook
