How ACI Worldwide Reduced Software Licensing Costs

 

ACI Worldwide is one of the largest payment processors on the planet, processing over 13 trillion dollars in transactions. It runs over 5000 guests and is saving over seven figures annually with Turbonomic.

“The ROI for us was measured in months….there’s not many things out there that pay you back that quickly. So, why wouldn’t you do it?,” says Mike Campell, VP of Hosted Operations.

Reduce the Number of Processors/Hosts That Require Licensing

Turbonomic customers typically increase utilization by 40-59%, greater VM density results in fewer processors/hosts required to assure performance. Turbonomic automates resource placement, sizing, and start/stop decisions across hosts, clusters, and datastores to assure application performance. The same approach also ensures the underlying infrastructure is being utilized as efficiently as possible and VM density is maximized.

Keep the VMs on the Licensed Hosts

Turbonomic’s Policy Engine allows administrators to create dynamic groups for hosts and VMs, and define rules that ensure these groups stay together in a dynamic virtualized data center. It enables definition of dynamic groups (e.g. all hosts with 8 pCPUs, all SQL VMs) and rule assignment allowing you to keep your VMs from wandering to hosts they are not licensed for and avoiding out of compliance risk.
