Metron, known worldwide for its capacity management solutions and IntelliMagic, known for its storage performance management expertise are partnering to provide Companies with an integrated performance and capacity view of both their servers and storage.
Server and storage capacity are allied yet it is a difficult and complex task to keep tabs on both at the same time. The fruits of this partnership, in line with Metron’s 360° Capacity Management strategy, bring together data from these two formerly disparate areas. In addition to enabling detailed performance investigation of each area, Metron’s athene® will now provide a single reporting window across both.
Andrew Smith CSMO at Metron commented “We are really pleased to stand shoulder to shoulder with IntelliMagic. We both pride ourselves on delivering the most advanced and reliable solutions available today. The combination of our products allows systems and storage to work together and the long term benefit to Companies will be significant, not only in cost savings but also in user satisfaction. The quality analysis of storage performance that IntelliMagic brings, strengthens the all-inclusive 360° view of performance and capacity data that athene® handles.”
This combination of Metron’s athene® along with IntelliMagic’s Vision and IntelliMagic Balance gives an unparalleled view of server and storage performance leading to the prevention of performance issues, faster problem resolution, more efficient usage of both server and storage hardware. The modelling capabilities of athene® and IntelliMagic Direction predict performance issues in advance and allow Companies to move away from ‘fire-fighting’, reduce staff time spent in ‘War Rooms’ and adopt a pro-active approach to infrastructure management.
Gilbert Houtekamer, Founder of IntelliMagic, stated “IntelliMagic’s Storage Performance Management solution delivers unique benefits. Users reduce risk and improve efficiency of their storage with IntelliMagic’s early warning and deep visibility. These types of proactive features have been the hallmark of Metron athene® on the server side for many years. Now with the IntelliMagic-Metron collaboration, customers are better prepared than ever to provide superior end-to-end performance and capacity monitoring of their infrastructure and will realize better SLA achievement with fewer resources.”
