Accurately Forecast Your IT Department’s Capacity Needs and Eliminate Surprises
Shared resources in complex virtual environments can make storage capacity planning difficult. Unexpectedly exceeding storage capacity can cause outages and critical issues for your business critical applications. SIOS iQ provides precise, accurate storage capacity forecasting that lets you optimize your capacity without costly over-provisioning. SIOS iQ analyzes your capacity utilization patterns and forecasts how many days remain before data store(s) run out of free space.
SIOS iQ also allows you to adjust the parameters of the capacity forecasting algorithm, including the ability to set the severity levels you want to use to determine related application Performance Root Cause issues. It generates a warning for a given severity level — Critical, Warning, or Informational — if its forecast indicates that the specified capacity usage percentage (% of Capacity Used) will be reached within the timeframe indicated.
SIOS iQ goes far beyond manual spreadsheet analysis and one-dimensional projections. Instead, SIOS iQ uses a precise analysis of actual component behavior and the impact of that behavior on capacity usage over time. This in-depth, real world analysis enables it to provide the most accurate capacity forecasting in the industry.
This feature optimizes your infrastructure without risking costly emergencies. It can be used with the SIOS iQ Snapshot / Virtual Resource Waste analysis or ROI Calculator features to optimize storage and maintain a predictable budget.
