IBM has announced the upcoming acquisition of Turbonomic, a company that works on the management of application resources and network performance. This is the 11e acquisition in the field of hybrid cloud and AI for IBM since the arrival of CEO Arvind Krishna. The acquisition of Turbonomic comes after the recent purchase by IBM of the automation company myInvenio.
For IBM, the purchase of Turbonomic will strengthen its AIOps activity. Turbonomic’s platform uses AI to monitor and manage containers, virtual machines, databases, servers and storage instances.
IBM will use Turbonomic’s platform for cloud-based infrastructure observability, optimization tools and AIOps. Turbonomic will complement IBM’s recent purchase of Instana and its IBM Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps and will be integrated with Red Hat OpenShift.
Also used for 5G deployments
According to IBM, Turbonomic’s network performance management tools will also be used for enterprise 5G deployments. Turbonomic has also entered into a partnership with Cisco.
The deal is expected to be finalized in the second quarter.
