Report explores compelling new Cloud-based approach to performance management for system admins tired of misaligned tool support and gaps in coverage

The Tanjea Group is an IT industry-respected analyst that is focused on delivering solid, in-depth, and hype-free analysis of the storage industry.

“Shops that spend man-years on enterprise management tools would do well to add Galileo as a highly capable front line of defense to get things done today.”

Galileo Performance Explorer™—a cloud-based performance monitoring solution developed by the ATS Group for server and storage system analysis—today announced the results of a validation report published by the Taneja Group. The report asserts that Galileo Performance Explorer provides fast moving IT staffs with a superior performance tool that get things done, proactively, without spending time integrating and managing complex and impractical management software.

“Performance is everything and today’s management solutions need to help IT operate faster and better – and not waste valuable admin time supporting unwieldy enterprise platforms approaches. Galileo’s cloud-based approach is easy to deploy, rich in value, and enables fast moving and growing IT organizations to run leaner and meaner,” said Mike Matchett, Sr. Analyst at the Taneja Group. “Shops that spend man-years on enterprise management tools would do well to add Galileo as a highly capable front line of defense to get things done today.”

The recently published Taneja Group report titled, “What Admins Choose for Performance Management: Galileo’s Cross Domain Insight Served via Cloud,” validates that Galileo Performance Explorer offers significant cost and time savings, with these top 5 advantages over traditional solutions:

1. Faster time to management value, faster time to implement/expand coverage across wide scales of systems and storage

2. More focus for System Admins on work processes, not on maintaining tools

3. Indefinite detailed history retention in the Cloud without onsite data management effort

4. Deep cross-domain analysis and insight – deep storage and server utilization and configuration metrics automatically collected and analyzed together

5. Enhanced stakeholder communication – better relations with other IT domains, IT management, and even business clients (using custom web dashboards, chart widgets, and distributed/mobile cloud access)

“We built Galileo based on our collective years of experience managing data centers and understanding the challenges facing any monitoring solution,” says Tim Conley, co-creator of Galileo Performance Explorer at the ATS Group. “Having independent validation underscores what our customers have been telling us; Galileo provides fast time to value based on real-world systems and storage monitoring needs.”

Excerpts of Customer Interviews

Why a big Financial firm chose Galileo: “…traditional tools became ineffective for day-to-day management of operations (note – we aren’t talking about reactive failure alerting, but the harder task of making sure things are running ok and not going off the rails. In other words, being proactive.”) –VP of IT Platform Engineering, responsible for all the enterprise storage and Unix server platforms amounting to over 13PB and 4000 servers

Why a respected Healthcare organization chose Galileo: “…this is part of a modern approach to providing storage as a service”. Using SaaS is the right way to deliver solutions – “I don’t have the resources for the care and feeding of management”. In fact, he finds it curious that there aren’t big vendors transitioning their legacy solutions to the obviously beneficial SaaS approach. –Director of Enterprise Storage, with only 4 admins and responsible for over 35PB of mixed storage ranging from GPFS (for HPC) to SVC (for virtualization) to mid- and enterprise-grade arrays
