As most new storage software emphasizes agnostic management and virtual hardware pools, a new product from W. Quinn Inc. focuses on performance management and helps administrators deduce what storage to buy when expansion beckons.
SiteStor is available now for Windows- or Solaris-based storage and for Network Appliance Inc.s network-attached storage hardware, according to officials at W. Quinn, the Reston, Va., subsidiary of Precise Software Solutions Ltd., in Westwood, Mass.
Through about 100 pre-configured reports, SiteStor determines whats already in place and which applications are using that storage.
Also determined are the capacities and application growth rates. Businesses can then use the information to help set their priorities. SiteStor licenses cost from $1,295 to $2,995 per server, with extra support options.
