Scale-out NAS deployments tend to continuously, and even exponentially, grow, becoming critical data repositories that simply can’t go down or even slowdown. The impact of mission-critical NAS deployments experiencing performance problems can mean both lost revenues, delayed projects, and unproductive, idle employees. Teams in the oil & gas, media, healthcare, EDA, finance and manufacturing sectors heavily rely on large-scale NAS deployments for their success.
Inefficient, legacy management and monitoring tools that lack a real-time capability, application awareness, and correlation with problems across the infrastructure simply can not be used to assure scale-out NAS performance. A better approach is needed.
Organizations need to implement end-to-end strategies that provide real-time visibility into the applications that live on their storage systems. Having application workloads at the center of these IT strategies, businesses can anticipate the storage needs required to adapt and remedy unplanned outages and slowdowns to unstructured data streams.
Virtual Instruments delivers unprecedented visibility into Dell EMC Isilon scale-out network attached storage with an application centric monitoring approach that spans from cluster to disk. The software integration for Isilon storage when coupled with wire-data monitoring enabled by the Virtual Instruments Performance Probes provides visibility into application conversations at the highest possible granularity in the industry.
