Xsigo Performance Manager Increases Data Centre Efficiency through Unparalleled Visibility across Fibre Channel and Ethernet Networks

Allows IT managers to visualise, monitor and manage network and storage performance across the landscape

(PresseBox) ( London, UK, )
Xsigo Systems, Inc., the leader in virtualised data centre infrastructure, today announced the Xsigo Performance Manager, a plug-in for the Xsigo XMS Management Interface that, for the first time, lets administrators monitor I/O traffic across all attached resources, including virtualised and standalone servers, storage, and network components. This gives data centre and virtualisation administrators a detailed view of the environment, allowing them to address issues before they impact the user experience by making the necessary adjustments to the relevant systems and networks.

"IT managers need predictable application performance to consistently meet their service level agreements. This can be a challenge in highly virtualised environments where multiple virtual machines often compete for limited resources," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst with ZK Research. "By providing a real time and historical view of data traffic at multiple levels, from virtual machines to network connections and Fibre Channel storage, the Xsigo Performance Manager can provide valuable insight to help identify and fix performance bottlenecks before they impact service delivery."

Key features include:

- Consolidated view of data traffic across all server, virtual machine, storage and networking resources on a single screen;
- Multiple granular resource views, from specific ports to entire servers;
- Monitoring support for both Fibre Channel and Ethernet;
- Detailed data from both virtualised and standalone resources, gathered over a specific time period: hours, days, or months;
- Overlay views to layer old and new data for short or long term trend analysis.

"As virtualisation administrators upgrade their data centres to new agile architectures, I/O performance issues can create numerous challenges such as poor user experience, unpredictable performance, lengthy backup jobs, and network congestion," said S.K. Vinod, vice president of product management at Xsigo. "The Xsigo Performance Manager helps the virtualisation team identify I/O problems across the entire data centre before they impact performance, eliminating the barriers for them to move to more efficient virtualisation and private cloud architectures."

The Xsigo Performance Manager is available in March, 2012, and is priced at £5,000 for a single I/O Director license.
