Piscataey, NJ (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

Interscape Technologies announces two key SAN/NAS/DAS services as part of its “expert inclusive” Perfonics™ based Performance Analysis As a Service™ offerings. The new services include Storage Hot-Spot & Bottleneck Analysis and Server Level IO Bottleneck Analysis. Performance Analysis As a Service™ is a cloud-based offering focused on providing Performance Analysis, Capacity Planning, Performance Troubleshooting, Consolidation Modeling, Migration Planning, Capacity Planning, Trending and Forecasting for multi-vendor SAN & NAS Storage Infrastructures.

“We are very excited to announce these two key storage services. At a cost of less than three people days these ‘expert inclusive’ Interscape offerings provide significant value to end-user Enterprise storage groups, Storage services providers and Resellers.”, said Alok Jain, Founder & CEO of Interscape Technologies. “The Hot-Spot & Bottleneck Analysis helps in identifying key issues in a storage infrastructure by providing a proactive solution which reduces reactive-fires & downtime. The Server Level IO bottleneck is aimed at identifying key storage latency issues at the Host Levels.”

The Hot-Spot & Bottleneck Analysis is a proactive approach to reducing reactive fires & storage infrastructure downtime by pin-pointing unbalanced load due to Fan-out or IO Load distribution. It can identify Hot-Spots at Disk Adapter or Physical Disk levels, Hot-Spots at RAID Group or Storage Pool levels and Bottlenecks due to 100% utilization at front-end/back-end/disk-levels. Critical key metrics are identified that are causing the bottleneck using component level Heat Charts. (e.g IOPS, MBPS, Cache-hits, Write-pending, Read vs. Write, Sequential vs. Random, Block Sizes & IO Queues)

The Server Level IO Bottleneck Analysis provides details around IO latency issues within the server. It can also help baseline IO load across storage devices, I/O queues, read/write IO profiles, block size distribution and other key host level metrics.

Performance Analysis As a Service™ approach is implemented using the Interscape methodology based on a tool called Perfonics™. This methodology provides a hands-off model; there is no software, agents or appliance needed to be installed and no additional specialized skill-sets are needed by customer. Customers simply provide the OEM tools data already collected in their environment or run well-known native storage & server commands/scripts. Once the collected data is uploaded on to secured Interscape cloud, analytic reports are generated and provided via reporting dash board. Customers can take advantage of our “expert inclusive” services to get a deeper understanding of the issues that will help them decide on the corrective actions.

Interscape believes in a simple low cost pricing model:
Hot-Spot & Bottleneck Analysis starts at $2450 for 5TB/5 Hosts
Server Level IO Bottleneck Analysis starts at $950 for a single host
