IBM Spectrum Control supports a wide range of storage systems, software-defined storage and storage area networks (SAN) devices with monitoring, and provides a central console to manage storage infrastructure.
Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
I have been using the IBM Spectrum Control since many years now when it was branded as Tivoli Storage Productivity Center. We use to manage the DS8000 systems using this product with very limited options. IBM has come a long way forward after rebranding the product as IBM Spectrum Control and have managed to provide us with the centralized management and monitoring of all of our storage systems as well as even from various vendors. There are certain limitations as we can use spectrum control to manage and monitor the block storage only. Files storage is not yet supported. Similarly, non IBM equipment has certain limitations as well when it comes to the monitoring and performance statistics. We have few DS8000s, v7000, FS 7200s, FS 900s along with few SVC clusters as well as the Unity and VNXs being configured on spectrum control. Hosts includes various clusters of ESXi, RHEL and IBM AIX.
- Managing of block storage
- Standard and customized advanced reporting
- Performance monitoring of the IBM block storage
- Monitoring and Performance of the vSphere cluster
- Must extend the management and monitoring to File storage.
- Performance monitoring of non IBM equipment may also be added.
IBM Spectrum Control is very well suited for the large enterprise where there is multi vendor environment in terms of storage and host virtualization. It is not suited at all where file storage is dominant. It is capable of providing very detailed reports as it leverages the IBM Cognos for that purpose and offers very detailed customization as well. It can even provide the enterprise with the SAN management capabilities as well.
It monitors all our data storage platforms and regularly updates us on any system issue. The data analytics we get from this platform give our departments efficient time working on performance. It can easily consolidate to be stored in flash disks under a secured environment. It automatically sends feedback to our data analysis team, giving volume quantities from all data sources.
- Monitoring data from our storage servers
- Provision of data analytics
