SolarWinds adds Dell Compellent to heterogeneous storage management solution

By David Frost

BRISBANE - March 23, 2012. SolarWinds® Inc. (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software today announced the release of its latest, award-winning SolarWinds Storage Manager, Powered by Profiler. Now with support for Dell Compellent, SolarWinds Storage Manager is the most complete monitoring tool for Dell arrays and an easy-to-use solution for implementing a multi-vendor storage strategy.


'¢ SolarWinds Storage Manager gives users unmatched visibility into shared storage that is not available through other vendors' solutions, including the management tools included with most storage arrays and the servers, switches, hosts and VM's they are connected to.

'¢ SolarWinds continues to reinforce its investment in storage management by extending its heterogeneous support and end-to-end monitoring to Dell Compellent storage arrays.

'¢ In addition to adding Dell Compellent support, the latest release of SolarWinds Storage Manager enables users to launch the Target View for block storage (Fibre Channel or iSCSI LUN) or file storage (NFS) shares, identifying contention on both the virtualization and storage sides; easily diagnose issues and help resolve them with more performance metrics for HP EVA, IBM SVC and IBM DS 6/8K storage arrays; alert on more performance metrics on arrays; and see storage and performance trends with configurable charting.

'¢ SolarWinds Storage Manager was recently named the Storage Management Tools 'Bronze' winner for the 2011 Products of the Year presented by the editors of TechTarget's Storage Media Group, and has been nominated for the 'Bench Tested Product of the Year,' Network Computing Awards (UK).

'For most IT departments, operating with just one type of vendor array or platform is not practical. A multi-vendor strategy allows for flexibility to address specific business needs whether it is performance, capacity or cost,' said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds' VP & Market Leader. 'Storage Manager supports all major vendors, including Dell, EMC, HDS, HP, IBM , LSI, NetApp, Oracle (Sun), Pillar and Xiotech. It is an admin's single pane of glass into real time physical and virtual storage data, making it easy to report, plan, troubleshoot and drill down into critical views.'

'I've used SolarWinds Storage Manager for many years as a way to monitor the performance of our application servers, as well as the virtual and storage environments,' said Jeff Conte, Network Engineer at APP Pharmaceuticals. 'Throughout this time, I've appreciated the product enhancements along the way with its additional VMware integration, heat maps and now the Dell Compellent array support."
