ViON presents the Virtual Instruments VirtualWisdom SAN and Virtual Infrastructure Optimization Solution. Virtual Instruments is the leader in instrumentation, measurement and monitoring solutions that allow IT managers to optimize the performance, availability and utilization of Storage Area Networks (SANs) and virtualized IT infrastructure. Virtual Instruments helps IT organizations maximize their use of existing assets through detailed measurements of performance and utilization – enabling your organization to "do more with less."
Virtual Instruments understands the challenges taking place in today's virtualized data centers. One of the major challenges facing IT managers is getting visibility and meaningful data about their virtualized applications and infrastructure on both a real‐time and historical basis. Virtual Infrastructure Optimization, a new category of data center management solutions, holistically assesses the entire virtual and physical infrastructure and provides the administrator with the data necessary to make intelligent decisions about capacity, utilization and performance for every layer of the IT infrastructure, including server, storage, network and applications.
VirtualWisdom is the leading SAN and virtual infrastructure optimization solution and is installed in scores of the world's largest data centers. Comprised of hardware and software probes and an easy to use graphical user interface, VirtualWisdom includes comprehensive, real-time and historical monitoring and measurement of SAN utilization, performance and availability to drive significant operational benefits. VirtualWisdom is the only product that can non-intrusively improve the performance of virtualized applications in real-time by analyzing actual SAN I/O traffic data. VirtualWisdom tracks the I/O conversations across the SAN infrastructure to provide real-time monitoring and trend analysis of the overall performance between enterprise applications, VMware Virtual Machines and the Fibre Channel SAN. VirtualWisdom delivers when detailed knowledge of I/O performance is essential, such as business‐critical enterprise applications deployed with server and storage virtualization technologies.
For mission‐critical applications, the Storage Area Network (SAN) is disproportionately the primary cause of application slowdowns and downtime. As SANs continue to grow, usually between 30‐50% annually, IT organizations face the challenges of ensuring that these mission critical storage networks are available 24x7, require limited personnel resources and eliminate operational risks. Our customers have adopted VirtualWisdom as a best practice to assure application availability, optimize SAN resources, improve performance, and reduce operating and capital costs. The quantifiable benefits of VirtualWisdom fall into five categories:
- Operational (OpEx) savings through faster problem resolution, reduced outages and lower maintenance fees on server and SAN resources
- Capital expenditure (CapEx) savings through higher utilization, performance‐based storage tiering, and elimination of unnecessary server and SAN expenditures
- Better adherence to and monitoring of enterprise SLAs and external compliance standards
- Accelerated application, SAN and virtual infrastructure deployments
- Stronger vendor management through auditing of vendor claims and faster root‐cause analysis.
