The high-tech industry has
spent decades creating computer systems with ever mounting degrees of complexity
to solve a wide variety of business problems. Ironically, complexity itself has
become part of the problem. As networks and distributed systems grow and change,
they can become increasingly hampered by system deployment failures, hardware
and software issues, not to mention human error. Such scenarios in turn require
further human intervention to enhance the performance and capacity of IT components.
This drives up the overall IT costs-even though technology component costs continue
to decline. As a result, many IT professionals seek ways to improve their return
on investment in their IT infrastructure, by reducing the total cost of ownership
of their environments while improving the quality of service for users.
managing computing helps address the complexity issues by using technology to
manage technology. The idea is not new many of the major players in the industry
have developed and delivered products based on this concept. Self managing computing
is also known as autonomic computing.
autonomic is derived from human biology. The autonomic nervous system monitors
your heartbeat, checks your blood sugar level and keeps your body temperature
close to 98.6°F, without any conscious effort on your part. In much the same
way, self managing computing components anticipate computer system needs and resolve
problems with minimal human intervention.
managing computing systems have the ability to manage themselves and dynamically
adapt to change in accordance with business policies and objectives. Self-managing
systems can perform management activities based on situations they observe or
sense in the IT environment. Rather than IT professionals initiating management
activities, the system observes something about itself and acts accordingly. This
allows the IT professional to focus on high-value tasks while the technology manages
the more mundane operations. Self managing computing can result in a significant
improvement in system management efficiency, when the disparate technologies that
manage the environment work together to deliver performance results system wide.
However, complete autonomic systems do
not yet exist. This is not a proprietary solution. It's a radical change in the
way businesses, academia, and even the government design, develop, manage and
maintain computer systems. Self managing computing calls for a whole new area
of study and a whole new way of conducting business.
Self managing computing
is the self-management of e-business infrastructure, balancing what is managed
by the IT professional and what is managed by the system. It is the evolution
What is self managing computing?
Self managing computing is about freeing IT professionals to focus on high-value
tasks by making technology work smarter. This means letting computing systems
and infrastructure take care of managing themselves. Ultimately, it is writing
business policies and goals and letting the infrastructure configure, heal and
optimize itself according to those policies while protecting itself from malicious
activities. Self managing computing systems have the ability to manage themselves
and dynamically adapt to change in accordance with business policies and objectives.
