Recently one of our Account Managers spent 3 days down in Sydney attending an IBM conference on the Tivoli software suite focusing on Storage and Automation. He found the storage talks very interesting because they addressed some issues that we hear a lot when talking to you.
The variety of information being created and captured is staggering. IT staff are faced with the challenges of managing their storage growth, executing capacity forecasting and storage reporting properly and managing storage costs. IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Centre provides improved visibility, control and automation to help tackle these concerns.
Visibility enables users across the organisation to understand the business in real-time. Visibility capabilities include configurable dashboards and reports that provide a comprehensive view of infrastructure and operations, driving insights for improved service delivery.
Control enables the business to transform and adapt while limiting operational risk. Control capabilities include storage management and optimisation options that drive performance improvement across heterogeneous infrastructures. Improved control can help organisations better manage storage processes as the infrastructure grows – all while controlling costs.
Automation enables the business to achieve greater efficiency by standardising on best practices in a repeatable and auditable way. Automation capabilities can be used to standardise processes from backups and configuration to SAN planning. Improved automation can help organisations reduce administrative overhead and reduce risk by eliminating time-intensive and error-prone manual tasks.
