Turbonomic, the leader in workload automation for hybrid cloud, has been recognized by CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, as a 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Award winner, taking top honors in the IT Automation Software category. The awards honor standout software, services and hardware that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling this year’s list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using criteria that included technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges. Winning the 2018 IT Automation Software category marks Turbonomic’s second consecutive appearance as a CRN Tech Innovator, recognized last year in the Enterprise Management Software category.
The cloud promises agility and elasticity and is essential to achieving digital transformation goals. However, the increasing volume of dynamic workloads (virtual machines and containers) distributed across a decentralized hybrid cloud infrastructure leads to management complexity that is beyond human scale. Turbonomic’s AI-powered workload automation ensures workloads continuously get the precise resources needed to perform at the lowest possible cost, while maintaining policy compliance.
“Eliminating the costly mistakes that many organizations experience during their ‘cloud rush’ requires real-time assessment, planning, migration and ongoing optimization of workloads. The dynamic nature of workloads in hybrid cloud is impossible to manage manually,” said Tom Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer at Turbonomic. “We’re honored to be recognized by CRN once again this year, validating that together with our partners we’re delivering customers with AI-powered precision to automate the management of their workloads on-premises and in the cloud.”
“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
