New Storage System Efficiency: Galileo enhancements deliver greater insight and control over virtualized I/O networks and storage units.

Galileo provides new visibility into Virtual I/O Servers (VIOS) operating in fibre-channel networks.

Galileo Performance Explorer™, a cloud-based performance monitoring tool for server and storage systems, created by the ATS Group, has expanded its range of capabilities to provide greater insights for high-traffic storage installations.

The latest release provides IT managers with insights for more efficient use of their N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) technology. It also gives users of SVC and V7000 storage systems the ability to chart and monitor activity on the internal drives of those systems that act as intermediaries between servers and backend storage systems.

“With the added NPIV charting capabilities, Galileo provides new visibility into Virtual I/O Servers (VIOS) operating in fibre-channel networks,” says Tim Conley, co-founder and principal partner for the ATS Group. “Having the ability to chart physical adapter statics as well as aggregate server statistics, gives users a better understanding of their I/O virtualization performance and helps them manage system resources more efficiently.” The same charting functionality also supports Multiple Shared Processor Pools (MSPP), Shared Ethernet Adaptors (SEA), and tape systems.

As a cloud-based service, Galileo provides universal access to IT server and storage analysis from any browser window. That accessibility makes it easy for prospective users to explore the new NPIV, SVC, and V7000 system monitoring capabilities—or any of Galileo’s 190 charts and 236 metrics—under ATS’ FREE 30-Day Trial program.
