3PAR Intros Tiered Storage Metering

FREMONT, Calif. -- 3PAR, the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today a new version of 3PAR System Reporter, a Web-based historical performance and capacity management reporting tool for 3PAR InServ® Storage Servers. New 3PAR System Reporter features include fine-grained, threshold-based email notification for proactive, Service Level Agreement (SLA) management and one-click tier views for easy administration of tiered-storage environments. Together, these features enable customers to plan, monitor, and meet SLA-based requirements in tiered environments with greater ease and precision.

“With the new 3PAR System Reporter, it’s ‘set it and forget it’,” said Jerry Porter, VP of Production Operations at Silverpop. “With System Reporter, our tiered-storage platform proactively notifies us of changes in metrics and trends so we can easily assure service levels for our various campaigns.”

Effortless Service Level Administration

As users increasingly consume storage as a service, service level management and planning involves more intensive and critical activities for administrators. Without proper tools to automate the process, manual gathering and conversion of system-level data into SLA-relevant information is time-consuming and error-prone. With 3PAR System Reporter, users define application-specific or system-level performance and capacity thresholds and trends about which they want to be notified. Built-in email services, coupled with the rich logical instrumentation of 3PAR InServ Storage Servers, enable System Reporter to keep administrators informed effortlessly--anytime, anywhere--of the most salient service level information such as aggregated or application-specific IOPS, throughput, and service times.
