Most environments have hidden availability risks because getting insights in the end-to-end risks, from the VMware guest through the SAN fabric to the Storage LUN, is difficult to accomplish in practice. It requires many relationships from a variety of sources.
It is time for a new, more intelligent approach to managing the performance, capacity, and configuration of your multi-vendor SAN environment. One that provides a dramatically different result that you can easily verify on your own data.
What’s new is the ability to visualize the connections of your VMs all the way down to your back-end storage LUNs. This intelligent, interactive capability allows potential availability incidents to be avoided altogether.
This webinar covers:
- What is the topology viewer?
- Requirements for the topology viewer?
- What kinds of end-to-end infrastructure storage problems are discoverable with the topology viewer?
- How can you diagnose issues with it?
- How can I get ahold of it?
Best Practices for Managing your SAN Performance (Part 3: Planning)
