Adapt and thrive
More than ever, users want access to IT services when and where they need them. The cloud promises a way to efficiently meet this need. But it often comes with hidden costs and risks. That’s because managing the cloud can be more difficult as virtualisation of resources can obscure visibility and hinder control. This can translate to higher administration costs and unknown vulnerabilities.
IBM Tivoli software can help you navigate this shift, adapt to the changes it brings and successfully satisfy your users while balancing these costs and risks. Tivoli software provides you the tools to ensure you maintain visibility, control and automation across your cloud including:
- Monitoring and performance management to ensure peak operation
- Scheduling and systems automation to balance system loads
- IT service management to minimise system downtime and accurately track costs
- Provisioning and orchestration to provide rapid scalability and deployment
- Storage management, backup and recovery to simplify data management administration and simultaneously reduce the risk of data loss
Enhance IT agility and optimize the trade-offs of cost, risk and innovation in the delivery and management of services.
IBM SmartCloud Foundation is a set of technologies for building and managing virtualised infrastructures and private and hybrid clouds. Together these technologies can help build a fully functional cloud management system that aids business transformation and new service delivery. Individually, these technologies can help nearly any cloud project make quick and incremental progress towards a longer term cloud strategy.
IBM SmartCloud Provisioning, a true IaaS solution, reduces costs and offers near-zero downtime and automated recovery.
IBM SmartCloud Monitoring helps monitor & optimise virtual infrastructure + virtual servers within, ensuring high availability & policy-driven placement of critical workloads.
Tivoli® Storage Manager for Virtual Environments protects virtual machines by offloading backup workloads to a centralised server and enabling near-instant recovery

Cloud Computing Use Cases
This white paper is a product of the Cloud Standards Customer Council1 (CSCC) and documents a collection of high priority use cases for both the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud computing service models. In general, use cases highlight the benefits of cloud computing and are key to identifying specific technical requirements including the need for open standards that promote portability and interoperability.Learn more
Thirty-six percent of enterprise IT leaders surveyed said that implementing a private cloud is a high or critical priority for 2012, but Forrester research suggests that most of these companies aren’t operationally ready to make this transition and need to take key operational improvement steps to get there.
