SolarWinds(R) Orion-Supported Storage Resource Monitor Extends Its Heterogeneous Storage Management Support by Including EMC(R), Dell(R), HP(R), and Dot Hill(R) Families, Providing IT Pros With Greater Real-Time Monitoring of SAN and NAS Arrays and Visibility From Array to Application
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/15 --
SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT performance management software, today announced enhancements to its newest product, SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM), which provides IT with the necessary insight into multi-vendor storage resources and the potential performance impact on virtual environments to ensure business-critical application performance. In the latest version, SolarWinds SRM extends the breadth of its multi-vendor storage management by adding monitoring capabilities for the more commonly used EMC, Dell, HP, and Dot Hill storage array families to the SolarWinds Orion® technology backbone.
"Applications are at the heart of every business today, helping productivity and driving revenue, so the performance of the underlying infrastructure that applications run on is vital to business success," said Nikki Jennings, group vice president, products and markets, SolarWinds. "A key component of the underlying infrastructure is the storage layer and the latest release of SolarWinds SRM helps to further simplify the complexity of managing multi-vendor environments with the addition of monitoring abilities for new array families. Using the real-time performance and storage capacity monitoring capabilities of SolarWinds SRM, IT pros gain unparalleled multi-vendor visibility and can ensure application performance."
SolarWinds SRM provides IT pros with single-pane-of-glass visibility into their storage infrastructure, including:
- Multi-vendor NAS and SAN monitoring, alerting and reporting
- Insight into storage performance across devices, storage groups and LUNs to identify I/O hotspots
- Automatic capacity monitoring and growth forecasting
Now with support for 30 percent more storage arrays, SolarWinds SRM continues to provide IT pros with heterogeneous monitoring abilities by adding EMC Symmetrix®, Dell Compellent®, HP StoreServ® 3PAR®, HP MSA™/P2xxx, and Dot Hill Assured SAN 4xxx/5xxx to the Orion technology backbone.
Additionally, SolarWinds SRM continues to support NetApp® Cluster-mode, NetApp 7-mode, NetApp E-series family, IBM® N-series, EMC VNX® & VNX2 family EMC Celerra®, Dell EqualLogic® PS Series, among others.
"By working closely with and listening to SolarWinds' thwack® online user community of over 130,000 IT pros, SolarWinds is able to expedite the product release cycle, solving the problems and challenges that specifically address the IT needs of today," said Jennings. "The increased product release velocity ensures IT pros get the right functionality for their changing environment, when they need it, as well as increased value for their investment in SolarWinds products over time. As a result, IT pros can anticipate more of their most commonly used storage arrays be added to Storage Resource Manager when the demand calls for it."
SolarWinds Orion integration allows data collected by SolarWinds SRM to be incorporated into the SolarWinds' AppStack dashboard, which delivers critical data from SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor and SolarWinds Virtualization Manager, giving IT pros end-to-end visibility into the underlying IT infrastructure to better troubleshoot application issues. With real-time visibility into heterogeneous SAN and NAS arrays and integration with the AppStack dashboard, IT pros are able to view and manage an IT environment from array to application.
SolarWinds SRM also works with SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer in Orion to give teams a performance-oriented view of the resources, performance and interdependencies between database operations, storage systems and the infrastructure that supports them, including host servers and virtualization layers. When used together with the AppStack dashboard, teams gain database and storage visibility in the context of application performance.
