The VirtualWisdom platform provides insights into the performance, availability, health and utilization of your storage infrastructure–across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. VirtualWisdom intelligently correlates and analyzes an unmatched breadth and depth of data via agentless software probes and purpose-built hardware devices, to transform data into answers and actionable insights. It analyzes real-time wire data directly from your infrastructure – something that no other monitoring solution can do.
With Applied Analytics, we’ve taken the expertise gained from working with hundreds of enterprise customers and built that wisdom right into the platform. The analysis that used to take experts hours or even days is now executed in seconds – turning data into actionable answers. With our growing catalog of expert-infused analytics, our customers are confidently managing and optimizing their storage infrastructures. Typical scenarios include: Verifying load balancing across hosts with Balance Finder; Finding out if any deviations require attention with Event Advisor; Understanding causality between trends with Trend Matcher; Optimizing system-wide performance and reducing wait times with Queue Solver; and seeing optimal placement of virtual machines across clusters with VM Coordinator and VM Deployment Advisor.
Entity-centric is VirtualWisdom’s unique method of logically grouping system-wide resources, physical devices, and application workloads. Entities can be groups of storage, switches, servers, and applications. They are organized in hierarchical groupings that allow you to view varied levels of granularity and logical aggregation. This allows collaborative teams to understand how their resources are performing, based on function, correlation, and interdependency—helping guarantee that you and your teams are driving maximum performance at the appropriate infrastructure spend throughout the organization.
When it comes to knowing how your infrastructure is truly performing, context and real-time data are key. Without context, data is indecipherable to the human interpreter, incapable of revealing meaningful insight. VirtualWisdom’s Live Reports visualize millions of metrics in powerful combinations, specific to performance, health and utilization at device and Entity levels. Live Reports then converts this data into graphical representations that are easy to understand and interpret—like Bar Charts, Trend Charts, Time-Based Comparisons and Histograms.
Intelligent Topologies provide a high-level summary of what is going on in your infrastructure, allowing you to quickly identify emergent issues, and enabling you to understand the impacts and interdependencies between workloads and infrastructure. Sparc lines show key trends related to performance, health and utilization, and alarm badges identify if there is a current alarm event related to the entity or one of its sub-components.
Alarms are typically automated responses generated by your infrastructure monitoring tools and are armed with good intent. But these alarms end up generating more noise than actionable alerts, defeating the purpose of having them at all. VirtualWisdom offers a better, groundbreaking approach with case-based alarms. An alarm-generating event actually opens a case and all subsequent related alarms populate that case, enabling you to understand trends and determine correlation and severity on a case-by-case basis.
The largest and most agile enterprises in the world trust VirtualWisdom to guarantee the performance and availability of the infrastructure that supports their mission-critical applications. Whether you’re concerned about providing excellent customer experiences, patient data availability, business continuance, national security, or anything in between, VirtualWisdom helps IT teams deliver on the promise of performance no matter how digital businesses evolve.
The VirtualWisdom NAS Performance Probe (ProbeNAS) is the industry’s most complete, real-time, full line-rate monitoring solution for NFSv3 environments. Working completely out-of-band, the NAS Performance Probe analyzes every IP Packet on monitored NAS ports, and reports hundreds of metrics every second to provide comprehensive, accurate, and vendor agnostic monitoring at the protocol level. The Probe is offered in a 2U chassis with up to 16 x 10GE links.
