Utility Gets More Useful

IBM and Hewlett-Packard have added automated, proactive management software to their utility computing strategies. IBM last week introduced the IBM Tivoli Intelligent Orchestrator, which lets business-technology managers centrally control IT resources and convert data centers into IT utilities. Due later this month, Intelligent Orchestrator will help automatically provision server workloads based on network traffic and increase server-utilization rates. HP says it will acquire Talking Blocks Inc., a privately held maker of service-oriented architecture and Web-services-management software. Talking Blocks' software could be used to develop and manage Web services that interface with HP's Utility Data Center to dynamically change an IT infrastructure.
