PRESS RELEASE

VirtualWisdom SolutionPack

Virtual Instruments, a developer of Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) solutions for physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, has announced the VirtualWisdom SolutionPack for the EMC Storage Resource Management (SRM) Suite. The VirtualWisdom SolutionPack complements the capabilities of the EMC SRM Suite with sub-second performance analysis and SCSI-level protocol visibility, providing customers real-time insights into how their storage environment is performing.

Virtual Instruments delivers critical performance management capabilities for the software defined datacentre. The VirtualWisdom SolutionPack, which was developed through a collaborative engineering effort with EMC, extends the capability of the EMC SRM Suite with:

  • High-performance SAN monitoring and troubleshooting - Detect and troubleshoot performance spikes in one second intervals;

  • SCSI protocol level visibility - Identify faulty components, misconfigurations and saturated resources through continuous, real-time monitoring of SCSI transactions;

  • Performance-based SLA management - Enable IT to guarantee SLAs to business owners through continuous monitoring of real-time performance metrics; and

  • Accelerated migration of performance-sensitive applications to software defined storage (including EMC ViPR) - Accelerate the realisation of benefits delivered through software defined storage.
