Application Optimisation

Imagine if your applications always performed at their peak. Imagine if their underlying resources were continuously optimised, and if you could trace slow business transactions down to a single line of code... and if all of those applications ran on a secure, multi-cloud, adaptable digital platform. It’s time to stop imagining and start working with Logicalis and Cisco to make Application Optimisation your reality. 

Application Optimisation integrates the power of Cisco's AppDynamics with their Intersight Workload Optimizer (CIWO), creating an AIOps platform that employs pre-built AI algorithms to automate optimisation decisions within CIWO based on the context of the application performance, business transaction and user experience analytics from AppDynamics. The solution unifies and simplifies IT operations, DevOps and service management with a single platform controlling applications across cloud and data centre, physical, virtual and containerised resources and services, all governed by centralised policies. 

Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) provides the unified micro-segmentation fabric across clouds and data centres to connect and secure the communications between your application tiers and microservices. Cisco HyperFlex is the digital multi-tool for the data centre, providing high performance and capacity scale-out resource options that support physical, virtualised and containerised workloads, integrated into multi-clouds. 

  • Connect visibility of application performance to user experience and business transactions to drive better digital experiences 
  • Automatically save costs on multi-cloud deployments 
  • Automatically govern workloads on multi-cloud resources 
  • Securely connect workloads across multi-clouds controlled by a single policy 
  • Unify IT operations, DevOps, and service management teams with a single platform 
Intersight Workload Optimizer

Intersight Workload Optimizer

Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer (CIWO) assures application performance and resource costs whilst adhering to governance policies. It automates the optimisation of application resources across clouds, data centres, virtual machines, containers and networks.  

CIWO balances the supply of resources with the demand of applications, continuously in real time. With the explosion of microservices adoption, applications are getting to a scale and complexity beyond human capability to manage in real time. CIWO uses AI-driven decision making and automation to overcome this. 

Automation requires governance and guard rails, CIWO is no exception. Policies govern and control the platform, balancing the provision of optimum resources for application performance with costs and governance, such as what workloads can be placed in what clouds. 

CIWO integrates with other platforms enabling AIOps-driven application optimisation. Integration with Cisco ACI networks and Cisco HyperFlex hyperconverged platforms enhances CIWO decision making in the data centre. Integration with AppDynamics ingests application contextual data into CIWO enabling application-level optimisation.
