MonoSphere Teams With EMC
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- MonoSphere Inc., creator of award-winning storage capacity management software, today introduced Storage Horizon 3.2, a comprehensive solution delivering exceptional visibility into the most popular EMC storage arrays. Ideal for managing many terabytes of storage, this enterprise-class software solution provides Global 3000 companies with a unified view of current and projected storage capacity usage, giving companies the insight to develop effective storage capacity plans and maximize utilization of existing and future storage assets.
The result is both a dramatic decrease in storage capital expenditures -- as much as 50 percent -- and a reduction in operational expenditures such as power, cooling and floor space.
New in this version of Storage Horizon is support for EMCs CLARiiON product family and EMCs industry-leading Symmetrix replication solutions - Business Continuance Volumes (BCV) and Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF). Storage Horizon is the industrys only solution for capacity planning environments that use BCVs and SRDFs to store multiple copies of data. This version deciphers the complex associations between host volumes and their RAID levels, storage array logical devices and their RAID levels, and replication levels supported by EMC BCVs and SRDFs. Through these associations, current and forecasted usage of arrays is determined.
For storage administrators, aligning storage resources with actual usage has been a challenge that can result in over-purchasing hardware or out-of-storage emergencies, said Brad ONeill, senior analyst at the Taneja Group. Using Storage Horizon, enterprises can map storage usage from application hosts down to storage subsystems, allowing users to make well-informed purchasing decisions and reduce unnecessary hardware spending.
