We are a Disaster Recovery service provider and we provide DRaaS cloud-based services to our clients. We have a very mixed storage environment that services IBM Mainframe, pSeries (AIX), iSeries (AS/400) and x86 environments. Intellimagic monitors and reports across all of our storage platforms to quickly alert us to issues and historical capacity and performance information.
  • The reporting capabilities are some of the best in the industry
  • The granular metric details that are captured are extremely helpful when reviewing storage performance
  • The ability to link hosts to volumes and report on specific host performance based on volume performance is very helpful
  • Storage Area Network switch monitoring is critical to alerts such as buffer credit overflows
  • object storage reporting is missing
  • virtual hypervisor host storage reporting is missing
Intellimagic is well suited for any environment but particularly heterogeneous environments where you need a single reporting tool to tie together all of your storage arrays, storage fabric switches, and host endpoints to clearly and quickly see where you might have a problem.

Used by SAN and storage team. IntelliMagic Vision for SAN gathers performance metrics for both SAN and storage, and this allows reporting and performance monitoring and trending.
  • Performance metrics for multiple vendors and equipment models
  • Stability and reliability of the system
  • Ease of report creation
  • Additional reports needed for IBM SVC replication monitoring
  • Additional new equipment not yet monitored
  • Automated report generation and distribution is not easy to implement
  • Trending and projections into the future are needed
Performance metric gathering for storage units, SVC virtualization layer, and Brocade SAN switches/directors are rock solid. Built-in reports cover the most-used scenarios, and the report creation has been improved to let you build the custom reports not already covered.

What is IntelliMagic Vision for SAN?

IntelliMagic Vision's AI-driven analytics platform analyzes the performance health of multi-vendor SAN components on a daily basis and translates the outcome into intuitive dashboards and rated charts. The vendor promises it automatically identifies issues in the making before they can impact production.

IntelliMagic Vision collects performance and configuration information on the VMware, fabric and storage systems to provide a complete end-to-end picture. This includes a visualization of the infrastructure topology which is integrated with the reports and charts.

When issues with SAN performance do occur, IntelliMagic Vision makes it easy to find the root cause without having to depend on the storage or switch vendor. According to the vendor, by using the drill-down options on the charts that show an issue, you can resolve problems quickly and independently.
