IBM boosts autonomic computing resources

IBM Corp. on Tuesday will unveil its Autonomic Computing Zone, an online information resource featuring daily and weekly updates of information pertaining to autonomic computing.

Autonomic Computing Zone is intended to help customers, developers, and ISVs learn skills needed for implementing autonomic environments for business transformation. IBM positions autonomic technology as enabling self-managing computing systems. Featured in the Zone are daily and weekly updates of articles, tutorials, news, tools, products, and events. A user forum also is highlighted, as is a self-assessment section that covers autonomic “maturity” levels, IBM said.

Autonomic Computing Zone constitutes an upgrade of the Autonomic Computing Resource Center, which featured the Autonomic Computing Toolkit, which is an Eclipse-based toolset for designing and testing autonomic systems as well as several downloads for building autonomic computing systems. The toolkit was downloaded nearly 3,000 times in the first two weeks, according to IBM.

The Zone provides a tour of autonomic computing, demonstrates concepts, and discusses tools available in the Autonomic Computing Toolkit. Additionally, the Zone provides an autonomic computing road map and a self-assessment regarding autonomic computing.

IBM on Monday announced plans to hold free autonomic computing seminars from April to November in Canada, the United States, Denmark, Belgium, England, Italy, France, Japan and in the Middle East and Australia regions. Attendees at the full-day seminars will get an overview of autonomic computing and core technologies, including details on problem determination, solution change management, and integrated solutions console technologies. They also will be provided with information on monitoring distributed workloads and steps to take to move to an autonomic environment.
