With the enterprise storage scenario evolving rapidly, a dedicated storage solution is essential for organizations in order to increase security and reliability of data. According to statistics, the amount of data in an enterprise network doubles every year. With data growing at this rate, it is important for businesses and data centers to have a storage monitoring software in order to manage their data effectively.
Dedicated storage solutions call for a dedicated storage management software. OpManager's integrated storage monitoring solution gives you the freedom of managing all your network storage devices from a single pane. With advanced performance monitoring and extensive reporting, OpManager packs a ton of features such as 'Disk Read/Write' stats, capacity utilization monitors and storage growth trend graphs to efficiently manage and monitor your storage devices round-the-clock. It enables you to monitor SAN components such as Fiber channel switches, Storage Arrays, and Tape Libraries which form the backbone of enterprise applications.
For in-depth network storage monitoring, OpManager's predefined storage monitor can be associated with storage devices to view the availability, for storage performance monitoring and to monitor various parameters of storage devices. OpManager also allows you to configure thresholds and depending of the criticality of the fault condition, each event and alarm is assigned a severity. OpManager simplifies storage device monitoring and is one among the leading storage monitoring tool available in the market.
OpManager utilizes SNMP / CLI / SMI-S/ vendor-specific APIs to discover and monitor the RAIDs in your network. For in-depth storage device monitoring, OpManager offers advanced asset management with comprehensive physical and logical asset details. You can view the health, availability and utilization of storage RAIDs and get alerted in real-time on hardware and software problems, drive failures and sensor faults. Reports based on performance and availability of storage RAIDs can be instantly generated over a period of time to aid with trend analysis. OpManager also helps you visualize your RAID storage network with topological maps of connections, link details table and color-coded icons to display the status with drill down option.
OpManager can automatically discover tape libraries in SAS / NAS networking vendor specific MIBs or APIs. Using OpManager, you can monitor the cleaning status, door status, operational status, etc. of tape libraries and addition, removal, mounting, unmounting, and other functions of tape drives. Reports based on availability trends, downtime history and MMTR reports can be generated for various time periods with OpManager.
OpManager offers advanced storage forecasting and capacity planning which helps you predict the storage requirements for your organization. You can predict the storage capacity by growth trend and utilization, get alerts when the specified capacity threshold is breached and schedule reports based on capacity trends. Take control of your storage devices with OpManager.
OpManager manages and monitors Fabric switches based on SNIA’s standard Fabric switch management MIBsand offers advanced insights by utilizing vendor specific MIBs and APIs. Asset and configuration details, capacity and performance of the Fabric switches and ports are readily available in OpManager and can also be generated as a report for detailed analysis. OpManager also offers advanced visualization capabilities like topological map of switches with their interconnections, link details and color-coded icons to quickly identify the status of a switch. OpManager’s real-time graphs and threshold based alarms help you to effortlessly monitor and manage the fabric switches in your environment.
