With Foglight for Storage Management, virtualization administrators can visualize their entire virtual to physical storage environment through detailed architectural representations. Out-of-the-box alerts provide the ability to predict, diagnose, and resolve problems affecting performance, capacity, and availability, while allowing storage administrators to visualize the consumers of storage and impacts to changes. Foglight for Storage Management enables organizations to better manage their underlying physical storage for optimal virtual infrastructure performance, and reduce data gathering time with end-to-end visibility to quickly ascertain root cause.
