Capacity Reporting for Every Environment

Visual Storage Intelligence’s® reporting features give you unified insight into your entire storage / compute / cloud environment – all on a single pane of glass.


Track usage and capacity over time at as high or low a level as you need, from enterprise-wide to device by device.


Use data reduction ratio reporting to know when flash arrays will run out of space – even when their capacities change over time.

Virtual & Compute

View and project usage and capacity on VMs, plus utilizations across vCenters and clusters.


Are you using all the space you provisioned? Use historical data to structure cloud contracts so that you’re always paying for no more than you need.

Visual Storage Intelligence customers interviewed by EMA indicated that the capacity management capabilities of the platform were exceptional and enabled them to substantially reduce storage infrastructure costs by accurately pre-planning growth requirements.
