NetApp OnCommand Insight

Solution Overview
NetApp OnCommand Insight is a powerful resource management tool that enables customers to simplify infrastructure resource management whether on-premise, in a private cloud or in the public cloud. Insight is a single solution to enable cross-domain, multi-vendor resource management and analysis across networks, storage and servers in physical and virtual environments.

Insight will provide visibility into infrastructure resource utilization as well as correlation of metrics to drastically reduce troubleshooting time in the event of an outage or performance affecting event. Its ability to monitor resources end to end (VM, compute, fabric, storage) will enable infrastructure engineers to look at a single tool to troubleshoot issues or to optimize their environment. Insight can easily identify over-provisioned resources as well as orphaned resources to help customers save on their infrastructure costs or avoid costly upgrades.
