Xangati Plans to Extend Storage Performance Analytics to VMware Virtual SAN

Xangati announced its intent to extend cross-silo intelligence and storage performance analytics for VMware Virtual SAN technology.

Xangati collects information from all servers, switch and storage systems that comprise the virtualized data center and gathers information from VMware vSphere, VMware vCenter Server and VMware Horizon to coalesce a holistic, end-to-end health picture of end-user quality of experience impacts to virtual desktop or virtual server infrastructures, augmenting VMware vCenter Server and VMware vRealize Operations.

Xangati has also implemented deep and direct integration into NetApp storage systems that shows the IOPS throughput and latency that NetApp is delivering to the hypervisor. Additionally, data on NFS or CIFS (Common Internet File System) shares, iSCSI or Fibre Channel LUNs (Logical Unit Numbers) and overall network bitrates are collated by Xangati. Storage-related storms typically occur when applications unknowingly and excessively share a storage controller, a volume or even a LUN, which cause storage performance to deteriorate, often dramatically and spontaneously, especially among converged infrastructures.

Relative to VMware Virtual SAN support, Xangati will collect information from the hypervisor about the Virtual SAN-based datastore and its constituents, including latency, throughput and IOPS, as well as capacity utilization, resource efficiency and availability information. Virtual infrastructure performance data are collected with highly granular, second-by-second precision, then correlated by Xangati’s advanced analytics engine to adjust thresholds dynamically, eliminating false alarms. When a service impediment crops up, such as a resource contention storm involving Virtual SAN, Xangati will utilize its exclusive StormTracker technology to automatically determine root cause and analyze Virtual SAN-specific metrics to resolve triage-level issues quickly.
