Virtana said in a statement that AUCloud's IT infrastructure has seen a 30% savings in IT capacity and a 20% improvement in performance by using its deep IT monitoring tools.
The VirtualWisdom software is claimed to ensure performance and availability of mission-critical workloads through AI-powered monitoring analytics, and automation, across Australian data centres in Canberra and Sydney.
The company said AUCloud had adopted VirtualWisdom in the early stages of building its new data centres. AUCloud chief operating officer Brad Bastow said: "We wanted a product that was capable of doing multiple tasks. I know Virtana from a previous life and have had very good support from their services people. We first engaged with an overview of VirtualWisdom, then a deep dive, and finally a POC – which settled the argument.
AUCloud's head of Technology Stephen Sykes said: "We had it up and running and productive in a few days. I ran some of the analytics and it gave me recommendations, like how much memory and CPU we could lose on VMs, and we could choose if we wanted to do that or not. It offers right-sizing and optimisation suggestions out of the box."
Virtana chief technology officer John Gentry said: "Sophisticated IaaS providers want insights on how their infrastructure is performing. AUCloud is a forward-thinking organisation that worked with us to strategically find its hybrid cloud infrastructure solution that efficiently maps, plans, and validates optimisation.
"Today, they have detailed analysis, including real-time right-sizing and optimisation recommendations, all in a single interface. It is partnerships like this that continue to improve our ability to optimise the hybrid cloud-based infrastructure sector for cost, performance, and capacity."
