FireScope has introduced FireScope Analytics, a real time analytics product that delivers business insight and decision support for capacity and performance of critical business services, on-demand.

FireScope Analytics is a next generation extension of FireScope Unify that enables drag and drop analysis of services and service dependencies across the technology stack and data centers in which they reside. Multiple forecasting formulas and algorithms are available to determine technology performance, correlate current data and provide predictive support for future needs. IT leaders gain real time decision support to respond to current activity demands and anticipate technology requirements in the future based on forecasted business growth.

The data used by FireScope Analytics is collected and normalized by FireScope Unify via its real-time data collection capabilities. Commonly used data collection methods include common standards and direct API connectivity for VMware, NetApp, Cisco and others. A multi-site capability pushes this service-related data and events from multiple geographically dispersed instances to a single data repository, which FireScope Analytics leverages for global service business insight and decision support.

FireScope's on-demand capacity and performance analysis enables IT planners to quickly evaluate their current storage investments, as well as, how a future investment in storage will impact a service, what business outcomes can be anticipated, and if the investment makes sense for the business. Not only does this help organizations map out the best strategy for cost-effective scaling of services, but also enables right sizing of private and outsourced cloud initiatives in a way that optimizes users experiences without over spending.
