For decades, IBM has been at the forefront of staple and emerging IT solutions (including their game-changing acquisition of Red Hat in 2018), and over the years, our ties to IBM have only grown stronger. From the beginning, ATS Group could boast a direct connection; our founders, Tim Conley and Chris Churchey, held positions as IBM Systems Architects and Engineers prior to establishing ATS Group. Through consulting efforts, ATS Group developed Galileo Performance Explorer — a proactive, data-driven solution for IT capacity and performance management supporting servers, storage, systems, networking, database, SAN and cloud. Galileo, initially used exclusively in ATS consulting engagements, is publicly available as a SaaS offering allowing them to increase uptime, pinpoint usage trends, forecast demands, right-size environments and accurately plan for the future.
As a supporter of critical infrastructure and IT innovation, ATS and Galileo are pleased to maintain and grow our long-standing partnership with IBM, providing the most advanced solution for our collective clients.
Supporting IBM Solutions
It’s no secret that Big Blue is one of the go-to providers for core infrastructure systems. From its advanced servers and storage all the way to the cloud, IBM is an undisputed giant in the tech sector. For these and an array of other reasons, it makes sense that Galileo continually builds out our IBM-connected technology agents, ensuring that users of our infrastructure performance monitoring solution can access unlimited historical data and accurately align IBM infrastructure assets with capacity needs.
The reliability of the modern infrastructure takes on a new level of importance with today’s data-intensive workloads. Galileo supports a full suite of IBM products, enabling users to access an array of historical insights, predictive analytics, performance metrics to predict and prevent latency and downtime as it related to data growth and usage trends. Thanks to Galileo’s IPM solution, IBM clients can continually keep their critical infrastructure systems running optimally, providing exceptional user experiences both internally and externally.
Galileo delivers predictive insights for key IBM systems including:
- IBM AIX
- IBM i
- IBM Spectrum Scale
- IBM DS3000, DS4000, DS5000 and DS8000
- IBM FlashSystem
- IBM SONAS
- IBM Spectrum Virtualize
- IBM V7000 Unified
- IBM XIV
- IBM Power
- IBM z
Our development and services team focus on, adapt to and innovate according to modern infrastructure requirements and next generation technology. Our teams are always working to remain on top of IBM technologies, keeping our finger on the pulse of the overarching technology industry.
Upcoming 2019 IBM Conferences
Speaking of maintaining pace with the ever-advancing tech industry, IBM also hosts several key conferences throughout the year to ensure that attendees can do just that. ATS and Galileo have a constant presence at these events, including those coming up this year:
- From February 12-15, we’ll be sponsoring and exhibiting in the Infrastructure Campus at IBM Think 2019 in San Francisco.
- In April and May, our teams will be among those attending the IBM Systems Technical University in Atlanta, GA.
- In October, we’ll be at the IBM Systems Technical University in Las Vegas.
In addition to these events, our team members are continually working to brush up on own IBM skills. Members of both the ATS and Galileo teams, including sales, marketing, technical and development, currently hold many IBM professional certifications for systems, storage, cloud and more, and are always working toward the next level.
