Description

Not all workloads have an equal value to the business, and IT organizations often find themselves in the unenviable position of having to decide which jobs get prime access to key compute resources – such as server processing, memory, storage, and networking resources. In this 7-minute video, IBM cloud and smarter infrastructure tiger team member, Xavier Giannakopoulos joins EMA managing research director, Steve Brasen for a discussion on how to determine the prioritization of workloads so that they optimally meet business requirements. Also described are key insights into how to easily implement workload priorities once the hierarchy has been determined. This video was inspired by two blogs: Xavier Giannakopoulos’ on creating priority lanes in workload automation (http://www.servicemanagement360.com/2014/04/01/promoted-priority-lanes-workload-automation/) and Steve Brasen’s on business-focused workload prioritization (http://blogs.enterprisemanagement.com/stevebrasen/2014/07/07/prioritizing-workloads-deciding-whats-hot-whats/).
