Problem: Monthly Capacity Planning Reports Were Too Time-Consuming

To perform effective capacity planning for 300 PB of storage, this two-person team needed faster, more accurate historical data from their devices. Although they used a management tool to collect this data from their multi-vendor storage environment, the process was difficult and time-consuming.

Meanwhile, using the data required them to build and maintain tedious spreadsheets, each separately designed for specialized tasks like forecasting. “It took a good two weeks just to do monthly reports,” said one of the capacity planners. That left less than half the month to accomplish anything else.

Outcome: Automated Capacity Planning Reports

Visual Storage Intelligence’s® (VSI) vendor-agnostic data collectors take in and sort infrastructure data with no need for external management. Teams can generate any of their 60+ reports in just a few clicks.

Tasks that seemed impossible in Excel – like change forecasting and volatile trend modeling – are accessible in minutes on VSI’s dashboard.

Impact: Reporting Time Cut in Half

By using Visual Storage Intelligence®, the team gained back more than a week per month in reporting time to use on new projects moving the organization forward.

“Including the efforts needed to maintain our prior tool’s infrastructure, we saved an entire FTE – plus significant cost savings between the tools.”


“We used to be responsible for data collection and analysis soup-to-nuts. Now, Visual Storage Intelligence® manages most things for us – cutting our monthly capacity reporting time in half.”
