CiRBA Reservation Console

Toronto-based vendor CiRBA is releasing Reservation Console, a software tool that automates the process of routing workloads and reserving capacity in virtual and cloud environments.

Admins typically choose the hosting environment on which to run their workloads on a manual basis, which means they have to figure out how much server and storage capacity they need as well. Reservation Console removes the guesswork and adds automation to make the choices easier.

CiRBA says the tool is like a "hotel reservation system" that ensures that application groups and lines of business get the capacity they need. The Reservation Console will hit the market in November, CiRBA says.
