Ionix(TM) Storage Configuration Advisor 2.0
The new software, the Ionix (TM) Storage Configuration Advisor 2.0, automates the validation of storage configuration best-practices in physical and virtual environments, utilizes agentless discovery to simplify storage deployment and management, and provides detailed reports and trend analysis that improve storage change and configuration management processes.
A virtualized data center increases flexibility by streamlining server and storage provisioning processes, but it also changes the way IT organizations manage storage in critical ways: 1) Virtualization accelerates the pace at which capacity can be allocated to new applications, and 2) Live migration capabilities like VMware VMotion(TM) and VMware Storage VMotion(TM) enable the dynamic movement of applications from one server to another or virtual disks from one array to another.
Ionix Storage Configuration Advisor 2.0 performs near-real-time discovery, change tracking and best practice validation of the virtual SAN environment. The solution significantly improves the efficiency of the change process, can raise service levels and accelerate/optimize planning and control as adoption of VMware-virtualized environments increases.
