Onaro's Storage Software Gets Support from NetApp

Apr 05, 2007

Onaro's SAN screen storage management software will now support NetApp fabric-attached storage systems, helping users manage different storage devices that support various applications.

Storage service management provider Onaro , and Network Appliance announced April 4 that Onaro's storage area network screen storage service management software will support NetApp's fabric-attached storage systems.

Onaro's SANscreen is a suite of integrated products that allow enterprises to manage storage as a service. With SANscreen, available since 2004, NetApp FAS customers will have access to reports on the storage services delivered to a particular application.

These services include:

-- Capacity assigned to the application

-- Access paths the application uses to get to the capacity

-- Recoverability of the application in the event of source volume failure

-- Performance of the storage environment

"The combination of Onaro SANscreen with NetApp FAS gives customers real-time feedback that all the devices in their SAN infrastructure are working together to meet the services required by their applications," Bryan Semple, vice president of marketing for Boston-based Onaro, told eWEEK.

With SANscreen, NetApp FAS customers will be able to use features such as root cause analysis, which links the changes that have been detected at the device level with the changes that have occurred at the service level, while also providing a reason for service failure.

"By doing this, customers can verify the present level of storage service, record and analyze past levels and predict the future level to ensure optimal service delivery," Semple said.

NetApp customers will also have access to SANscreen's planning module, which allows businesses to create ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) plans to implement any change in the environment. The planning module also monitors the storage environment as the changes are made.

"It benefits users because it gives IT teams visibility into the services delivered by their storage infrastructure," Semple said.

SANscreen is available now and pricing starts at $185 per port.
