These have a lot of customization abilities, but they require a ton of time and effort to manually maintain. Plus, if the person who built or manages the tool leaves the company, a lot of training and knowledge will be required to continue leveraging it. With Visual Storage Intelligence®, we handle all of the maintenance and development – and you won’t need a dedicated person on staff to “make the tool work.”
Native Vendor Tools
With Visual Storage Intelligence®, you’ll never have to log into separate tools just to see data and insights from different devices you own. We display everything together on a single pane of glass, automating reports and analytics that teams often have to build spreadsheets to compile when using native vendor tools (like Active IQ, Pure ONE, HPE Insights etc.) in a multi-vendor storage environment. On top of that, we display your compute and cloud information as well – we go way beyond on-prem devices.
Unlike NetApp (OCI), Dell EMC (SRM), and similar vendor tool distributors, Visual Storage Intelligence® does not manufacture or design storage devices – meaning we have no bias towards one set of devices, and no motive to omit certain data about your devices for sales purposes. Plus, Visual Storage Intelligence® is often less than half the maintenance renewal costs of most storage management tools.
Other vendor-agnostic tools like Virtana, Aptare, SolarWinds SRM, and similar tools can be complex – with too many bells and whistles that, at the end of the day, most people don’t really use. Additionally, some of these SRMs are simply add-on products in a much larger company that is focused on other projects. Visual Storage Intelligence® focuses on what’s important to you now. In fact, we often add custom views, reports, or device support within less than a month when clients request them. Our white-glove service is one of our driving principles as a company. Plus, Visual Storage Intelligence® is often less than half the maintenance renewal costs of most storage management tools.
