Virtual Instruments Introduces the VirtualWisdom SolutionPack for the EMC Storage Resource Management Suite

Virtual Instruments announced the VirtualWisdom SolutionPack for the EMC Storage Resource Management (SRM) Suite. The VirtualWisdom SolutionPack complements the capabilities of the EMC SRM Suite with sub-second performance analysis and SCSI-level protocol visibility, providing customers real-time insights into how their storage environment is performing. The VirtualWisdom SolutionPack, which was developed through a collaborative engineering effort with EMC, extends the capability of the EMC SRM Suite with: High-performance SAN monitoring and troubleshooting: Detect and troubleshoot performance spikes in one second intervals; SCSI protocol level visibility: Identify faulty components, misconfigurations and saturated resources through continuous, real-time monitoring of SCSI transactions; Performance-based SLA management: Enable IT to guarantee SLAs to business owners through continuous monitoring of real-time performance metrics and Accelerated migration of performance-sensitive applications to software defined storage (including EMC ViPR): Accelerate the realisation of benefits delivered through software defined storage. The VirtualWisdom SolutionPack is now available with EMC Storage Resource Management Suite V3.0.

Virtual Instruments Announces New VirtualWisdom SAN Performance Probe, the ProbeFC8-HD48

Virtual Instruments announced new VirtualWisdom SAN Performance Probe, the ProbeFC8-HD48. The new probe is the industry's first and only 48-port, real-time 8G line rate monitoring solution for Fibre Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs). It significantly improves the economics associated with dedicated performance monitoring of SAN-based systems, enabling organizations to extend monitoring capabilities deeper into their IT infrastructure. The ProbeFC8-HD48 delivers six times the density of the original ProbeFC8 and lowers the cost per monitored link by 50%. It also uses 75% less rackspace and consumes 75% less power for the same monitoring footprint. Traditionally, organizations have deployed dedicated monitoring solutions only against tier-1 revenue-generating or customer-facing applications. With the improved cost/benefit ratio of the ProbeFC8-HD48, organizations can now affordably monitor a broader application portfolio and drive greater performance optimization across more of the IT infrastructure. The SAN Performance Probe family of devices is the only solution on the market that delivers the real-time visibility that customers need to optimize the performance of their IT infrastructure. The ProbeFC8-HD48 is designed for large scale deployments with high port density storage arrays and for high-growth storage environments. The ProbeFC8-HD, which was introduced last year and monitors up to 16 Fibre Channel links per unit, is built for mid-scale, distributed deployments with mid-tier storage arrays. The ProbeFC8, which monitors up to 8 Fibre Channel links per unit, is ideal for small, entry-level deployments. The SAN Performance ProbeFC8-HD48 is part of Virtual Instruments' Infrastructure Performance Management platform, VirtualWisdom. VirtualWisdom provides a broad and deep view into the performance, health and utilization of large-scale, heterogeneous infrastructures, helping drive improved performance and availability while lowering the total cost of the infrastructure supporting mission-critical applications. The ProbeFC8-HD48 is available for pre-order on October 8, 2013 and is expected to be generally available by the end of the year.
