SolarWinds has added support for EMC XtremIO and Pure Storage all-flash arrays (AFAs) to its SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor (SRM).

SolarWinds SRM provides IT professionals with the necessary insights into multi-vendor traditional and flash storage resources and their potential performance impact to enhance business-critical application performance.

With the expanded device support, SolarWinds SRM helps ensure that any IT organization’s deployment of market-leading EMC XtremIO and Pure Storage AFAs, as well as other flash-based storage, provides the expected improvements to application performance. Combined with its already broad support of traditional storage devices, SolarWinds SRM is now even more uniquely capable of maximizing the performance of multi-generational storage environments all from within a single tool.

“Flash-based storage is quickly becoming commonplace in the enterprise due to the improving cost-to-performance ratio,” said Gerardo Dada, VP, Product Marketing, SolarWinds. “However, many IT departments must now manage new high-performance flash arrays alongside legacy storage systems. This can prove challenging, especially in terms of managing overall capacity, monitoring performance, aligning storage performance with changing application requirements and the complexity of generating consolidated alerting and reporting. SolarWinds SRM can help IT departments get the most out of their existing storage while also migrating to newer flash-based technologies, and then realize the full potential of their flash investment.”

SolarWinds SRM provides IT departments the following benefits across traditional and AFA storage deployments:

- Unified heterogeneous storage monitoring

- Storage performance monitoring with status and usage thresholds

- Automated storage capacity planning

- Prebuilt and custom alerting and storage resource reporting

SolarWinds SRM also integrates with the SolarWinds Orion platform, allowing storage performance data collected to be incorporated with data from SolarWinds Server & Application Monitor, SolarWinds Virtualization Manager and SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer into the platform’s AppStack environment view, thereby giving IT departments end-to-end visibility into the complete underlying application infrastructure to better troubleshoot application performance issues. With real-time visibility into heterogeneous SAN and NAS arrays and integration with the AppStack environment dashboard, IT professionals are able to view and manage an IT environment from array to application.
