Managing storage growth is painful when a system exhausts available storage; it is not only an operational inconvenience but also a budgeting nightmare. Many system administrators already have historical data for their systems and thus can predict full capacity events in advance. Hence need exists for an efficient capacity forecasting tool that analyses historical data from multiple back-up systems daily, forecasts the future date for full capacity, and sends proactive notifications.
With ManageEngine IT360, you can effectively forecast storage trends. IT360 enables prediction of the future storage needs, depending on the historic and current usage levels, thus helping administrators to plan the future storage needs. It allows you to generate future trend analysis reports on all the performance parameters of the storage devices, viz., read/write errors, traffic, throughput, etc., so that you will be able to understand and manage SAN competently. This in turn prevents over-provisioning of resources and emergency storage purchases, thus reducing the overall IT budget.
