Leiden, The Netherlands, September 30th, 2010
Today, IntelliMagic announces the availability of their software suite for
heterogenous Storage Performance Management (SPM).
IntelliMagic has been a worldwide leader of Storage Performance
Management solutions for many years with their RMF Magic product for z/OS
mainframe storage environments and the Disk Magic storage performance
modeling product.
The scope of the IntelliMagic solutions is now extended from mainframe
attached storage to also include storage in distributed systems environments,
and enhanced with a new graphical user interface.
“The performance of enterprise storage hardware is an area that large data
centers are now addressing much more proactively”, says Dr. Gilbert
Houtekamer, IntelliMagic’s Managing Director.
“This is because with today’s storage architectures it is very difficult to ensure
that the required I/O service levels are met without significant overspending
on hardware. Furthermore, even after overspending the risk of hot spots still
exists due to the lack of visibility inside the storage system. The inefficient use
of storage hardware due to limited visibility and poor balance of workloads
across the storage hardware resources is costing large data centers millions of
dollars and can be avoided, while at the same time reducing risk”, says
Houtekamer.
The new version of RMF Magic is named IntelliMagic Vision and is available
for z/OS mainframe sites using RMF and SMF data sources, and for distributed
systems environments using data from IBM’s TotalStorage Productivity Center
(TPC) or using SMI-S performance data directly from the storage array.
IntelliMagic Vision provides full visibility inside the storage systems where
performance bottlenecks occur. It also provides early warning of upcoming
problems with the automated daily health dashboard and now contains
intuitive drill down features on each chart to quickly identify root causes.
Disk Magic, the industry’s leading storage performance modeling solution, is
renamed to IntelliMagic Direction and is available for mainframe and
distributed systems environments. The third product in the IntelliMagic Suite,
IntelliMagic Balance, increases the performance capacity of storage systems
by balancing workloads over resources inside the storage system and is
available today for mainframe sites.
On their web site www.IntelliMagic.net, IntelliMagic offers more information
on their solutions as well as educational materials on Storage Performance
Management.
IntelliMagic also offers a Storage Efficiency Report via their web site, which
shows organizations the hidden throughput potential for their storage
environment.
