0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Introducing the new NetApp OnCommand System Manager 2.0 Organizations today, especially medium-sized enterprises, are experiencing a number of business and IT challenges. They're dealing with the complexity of setting-up and maintaining storage systems. Standing up a new storage system can stretch on-staff expertise, often involving expensive professional services. And after installation, ongoing management can be complex -- such as developing vendor-specific scripts, or using multiple tools for different classes of storage. Organizations have to negotiate resource constraints, with smaller IT shops having an especially difficult job, managing more capacity with the same level of staffing. Getting the maximum productivity without breaking the budget on specialized training can be a serious challenge. Today's businesses also have to maximize the return on their storage investment. The business demands that IT get the most benefits possible out of CAPEX invested in storage hardware. This necessitates unlocking the full power of new technologies to increase capacity utilization, reduce required labor, and support new capabilties like cloud solutions. Fortunately you don’t need to be a storage expert to manage NetApp storage systems. Configuration and ongoing management are easy using the browser-based OnCommand System Manager. While our competitors have different management tools for different types of data, System Manager is a single management tool that can manage both SAN and NAS storage from one dashboard. System Manager is one product that can manage the entire NetApp storage product line, including V-Series, rather than having different management solutions for each different class of storage. With System Manager, NetApp offers Unified management to complement its Unified storage offerings. System Manager provides simple workflow-based wizards to automate the most common device management tasks. With System Manager, adminstrators can quickly set-up and efficiently manage NetApp SAN and NAS systems using the expertise they already have. System Manager enables very fast execution of common tasks such as creating NFS exports. NFS shares are created by System Manager by default and CIFS shares are created in just a few steps in two minutes. In addition, many common tasks are facilitated by easy-to-use wizards including setup of aggregates, volumes, LUNS, Qtrees, shares, and exports. Use the same tool to configure your NAS -- CIFS or NFS, and SAN -- iSCSI, Fibre Channel or Fibre Channel over Ethernet. The wizard-driven VMware ESX integration enables simplified virtual storage management as well. System Manager is easy to use, yet it can manage some of the most advanced storage technologies such as Cluster-mode environments. System Manager is the NetApp management tool for Data ONTAP Cluster-Mode 8. Use NetApp storage technology to deliver several key business benefits: Improve Productivity by automating storage workflows, improving response time for storage requests, and using dashboards for single systems and clusters, with graphing, notifications and reminders. Improve Utilization by taking advantage of space-saving techniques such as deduplication, compression, thin provisioning and Snapshot copies. Other advanced features include SnapMirror, SyncMirror, Snaplock, vFilers and vServers, ONTAP 8 scale-out cluster management, real-time reporting of system performance and access and communications security features. In summary, System Manager is a simple, fast, yet powerful management solution for NetApp Storage systems. Quickly and easily leverage powerful storage features such as deduplication, thin provisioning and scale-out cluster management through an easy-to-use browser-based interface. And get all this functionality with no impact on your budget. System Manager is available at no additional charge for NetApp platforms.
