Compatibility with IBM Storwize V3700
According to IBM, SMBs alone are now responsible for nearly 65% of the global GDP. The launch of Storwize V3700-based on Storwize V7000, storage management solution for large enterprises, will make IBM storage services available to a number of companies , as well as providing resellers with opportunities to offer storage management services to a new range of customers.
Wizards Storage Portal provides real-time monitoring, analytics, automated reports and alerts to allow IT and their IBM reseller partners more efficient management of their business storage. It is compatible with storage management technologies including Tivoli Storage Manager, Storwize and SVC.
For SMBs, where IT budgets are too often stretched just to keep the lights on, this service frees up resources for more strategic, business-focused projects. Using WSP, IT departments can save up to 70% of the time they spend managing IBM storage and backup, while eliminating the need for additional hardware or software.
Peter Wharton, CMO at Debriefing Software, said: "It's not just the larger enterprises that want to maximize their storage investments: SRM analytics, monitoring and surveillance are equally important to small-to-medium businesses. Like IBM, we see a huge opportunity in the SMB market."
For IBM reseller partners, it enables you to develop managed services portfolios in order to increase the number of annuity-based customer relationships.
Paul Stroem, global sales director, Debriefing Software, said: "Wizards Storage Portal provides IBM reseller partners with a unique range Storage Resource Management tools and features that can help them build a platform to offer managed services. By using WSP to work more closely with their customers, IBM resellers can extend existing customer relationships while bringing in new customers, creating recurring revenue streams that contribute to higher margins."
This version comes complete with all the features available in WSP for Storwize V7000, but with a few more features to help businesses save more time and money.
Jesper Matthiesen, CTO of Debriefing Software, said: "Wizards Storage Portal helps businesses, whatever their size, expand the lifespan of their storage infrastructures. It's not just about data growth. You can also see visual representations of response times, read/write ratios, input/output operations, transferred storage and much more. With this information in hand, it's easy to determine where performance issues have their origins in the storage system."
