NetApp has now become one of the fastest thriving SAN storage vendors and their storage appliances are used by enterprises to share vast loads of data across physical and hybrid cloud environments.
Owing to the rampant adoption of NetApp storage appliances by businesses, and tonnes of vital resources stored on them, their malfunction could profoundly cripple operations. Also, their inconsistent monitoring could mislead resource allocation. Making NetApp monitoring a part of your routine and incorporating a dedicated NetApp monitoring tool could help you avoid operational disasters.
Due to the number of business-critical functions dependent on NetApp storage appliances, outages and downtime could severely cripple operations; to this end, an effective NetApp monitoring tool can do wonders.
Here are some bottlenecks you may encounter if you fail to employ a NetApp monitor:
Here are some major benefits obtained by NetApp performance monitoring
Proactively detect storage performance hiccups before they evolve into serious threats.
Lessen the time needed to spot and troubleshoot storage-related issues and in turn augment uptime
Accurately determine storage capacity by keeping an eye on NetApp disk utilization
Leverage real-time monitoring stats and historical stats to ensure your data is protected
