Akorri Intros Dell Interoperability

LITTLETON, Mass. -- Akorri, Inc., the leader in performance management for the virtualized data center, today announced its BalancePoint performance management software now supports Dell EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI Storage Area Networks (SANs). IT organizations can use Akorris BalancePoint to plan, optimize and manage performance and resource utilization in data centers that are running Dell EqualLogic iSCSI SANs, which are increasingly popular in virtual data center environments. According to IDC, shipments of iSCSI-based storage solutions will increase 138 percent annually over the next five years.

“We believe that many IT organizations looking for cost-effective ways to virtualize their storage environments will adopt iSCSI storage solutions,” said Steve Ricketts, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Akorri. “Akorri is unique because we can model the performance of both iSCSI storage and servers, so that IT managers can ensure high utilization and good response time within their entire virtual infrastructure."
