DataDirect Networks Launches Centralized DC Management

Chatsworth, Calif.-based DataDirect Networks on Aug. 1 released DirectMon, a centralized data center management package that works with the company's proprietary storage, file system and in-storage processing IT.
It is the company's first product to specifically tackle big data management inside a data center.

DirectMon is designed to handle all aspects of Big Data storage infrastructure administration and minimize administrator overhead, the company said. Additionally, the management system provides a comprehensive framework for both real-time and predictive systems management and tuning of SAN, NAS and parallel file storage environments.

DirectMon works with the company's 6620, 10K and 12K series of products. Additionally, DirectMon will immediately support DDN's Gridscaler file system and IBM GPFS environments. This is the first of a release strategy that will, over time, address the broader range of DDN's file storage products as well as the company's analytics infrastructure direction, the company said.
