CiRBA Gets on Cloud Bandwagon with CiRBA 6.0

Data center intelligence software maker CiRBA is getting on the cloud bandwagon with CiRBA 6.0, which the company calls "an enterprise solution for efficiency management that meets the evolving demands of managing cloud and virtualized infrastructure." v6.0 combines cross-platform analytics with customizable role-based dashboards that increase visibility and control over the efficiency and risk of systems.

The company's new v6.0 dashboards deliver role-based views of efficiency and risks that offer "accurate, actionable answers." In this automated environment, the likelihood of human error is minimized and the decision-making process is enhanced.

Looking at it from 30,000 feet, the idea behind v6.0 is to enable faster decision-making in dynamic environments based on analytics computations that include cross-correlating data housed in corporate data center s. For example, based on analytics output, CiRBA can tell you how many IT resources you will need over the next 90 days to satisfy policy, HA and DR requirements.

As CTO and co-founder Andrew Hillier told me over a recent lunch, "Without analytics, it's a tangled mess and a waste of peoples' time. You can't do a good job of managing when you get different answers each time. Companies relying on manual approaches and spreadsheets simply cannot aggregate the required data, analyze it accurately, and provide answers with any level of reliability." Pricing runs between $25,000 and $1 million based on company size.
