DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In conjunction with Clear Technologies, a leading solution provider of IT consulting, server, storage, and software products, Visual Storage Intelligence is proud to unveil a new service offering, Capacity Planning-as-a-Service.

The Capacity Planning-as-a-Service (CPaaS) solution is a significant advancement in the future of storage optimization.

White Paper: Essential Principles of Capacity Planning

Digital transformation heightens the need for continuous storage capacity analysis for determining critical IT infrastructure, application and financial resource needs. The CPaaS solution provides on-demand, comprehensive, actionable insight into the utilization and performance of any storage environment. CPaaS also eliminates the costly risk of over-provisioning cloud storage. With CPaaS, IT executives can ensure staff resources remain focused on normal workloads and suspend manual capacity planning.

Paired with the human intelligence of Clear Technologies’ storage experts, IT executives will be well equipped to confidently make decisions for provisioning on-prem and cloud storage capabilities, at scale.

“We’re committed to building a strong, service-oriented relationship with our customers. In some of our discussions, we noticed customers conducting manual capacity planning outside of normal business operations and utilizing outdated tools. With turnover, the skillset and intricate excel spreadsheets were left to team members without the knowledge or time to complete manual reporting.”

“We identified a strong need for accurate, on-demand capacity planning to help these customers save money and maintain normal workloads. We’re excited to unveil the new Capacity Planning-as-a-Service offering to ensure customers are optimizing their storage environment and making confident, data-driven decisions for the future.”

“Developing the Capacity Planning-as-a-Service solution enhances the capabilities of the Visual Storage Intelligence tool,” said Van Symons, Visual Storage Intelligence’s Chief Technology Officer. “We created Visual Storage Intelligence as a client-driven tool to continuously meet the needs of our clients’ storage environment.

Visual Storage Intelligence was founded in 2010 as a subsidiary of Clear Technologies. At the time, most clients managed their storage with either storage resource management (SRM) software or Excel spreadsheets and manual processes. Visual Storage Intelligence is an easy-to-use Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) that gives clients the insights that they need without the cost and complexity of traditional SRM products or the manual intensive approach of spreadsheets.

With over 25 years of experience and a premier offering of cloud-based infrastructure and services, Clear Technologies partners with enterprise organizations to deliver customized IT solutions designed to increase operational efficiency. Clear Technologies utilizes Visual Storage Intelligence (SRMaaS) to help enterprises discover performance insights, simplify storage management processes, and increase ROI.
