IntelliMagic Vision has extensive support for z/OS Disk architectures. View this brief video to discover how IntelliMagic Vision can optimize your z/OS disk environment.

From Data to Intelligence

Consistent access to enterprise data is highly important for any large company. Through RMF, z/OS offers extensive performance measurements of the entire disk environment, but this data cannot be interpreted without the right intelligence.

IntelliMagic Vision enhances the RMF data and applies its built-in knowledge about workloads and disk storage system architecture, which we have been developing over the course of decades. This results in an early warning system that automatically identifies I/O issues in the making. This way, time can be spent on strategic performance management instead of on fire-fighting efforts.

The risk indicators in the Disk Storage System dashboard allow you to prevent service disruptions from happening because it unveils what is happening inside the disk storage systems, even before applications suffer.

Furthermore, the root causes of storage issues can be investigated very easily by using the drill-down options. When you are alerted to a yellow or red-rated dashboard or chart, you can find the cause of the problem, and learn what you can do about it. IntelliMagic Vision will show you the ‘heavy hitters’ and provide guidance towards a solution.
