Unisys, Storage Fusion to offer Storage Resource Analysis (SRA) service

To help companies optimise data-centre efficiency and reduce storage costs

By CBR Staff Writer

Unisys has teamed up with software developer Storage Fusion to offer a global Storage Resource Analysis (SRA) service, designed to help companies optimise data-centre efficiency and eliminate expensive storage costs.

Through the service, businesses can use a portal to access a headline report on their system utilisation, capacity allocation and disk tiering. The report includes an environmental module that shows power consumed by storage hardware down to individual disk drives, the company said.

Using an innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery model, the self-service portal can deliver detailed analytics within hours by cutting through the complexity of heterogeneous storage environments, the company claims.

Nikki Wilton, director of information and data management at Unisys, said: “Most organisations struggle with storage complexity and cost because they don’t know what they have or what they really need. Consequently, they often try to manage growth by just buying more. Even more alarming, some run the very real risk of data loss through a simple lack of visibility.

“For example, one large public-sector organisation that signed up for our headline report discovered that large amounts of data were unprotected due to simple configuration issues. Just imagine the reputational damage if the problem had remained undetected and data had been lost as a result.”
