StorNext Connect makes it easier for you to discover, manage and monitor your StorNext® environment by connecting all your StorNext resources—storage, CPU, memory and network interconnect—in a single graphical view. With StorNext Connect, you can shorten the time it takes to deploy or upgrade a StorNext environment, identify problems before they affect users, and reduce the risk of downtime or degraded performance by eliminating error-prone manual tasks.
Discover. Monitor. Manage your environments with StorNext Connect!
StorNext environments are dynamic workspaces where multiple users interact with valuable data through a wide variety of applications. Maintaining performance and access to data is an ongoing administrative task. While StorNext is one of the most hands-off data management platforms available, enhanced insight into system status and single-screen manageability can provide even greater control and visibility.
Before you can manage and monitor the components in your environment, you must make sure the environment is fully installed and discovered. That is, the components must be able to communicate with the StorNext Connect system. Connect enables simplified and straightforward installation and configuration of all Xcellis appliances via a robust web-based GUI.
StorNext Connect provides a single-screen view of your StorNext environment, providing a single location for day-to-day monitoring. Users can view current statistics as well as historical and future trends for performance, throughput, and latency of all file systems at a high level with a drill down to individual components.
StorNext Connect includes applications to help you perform common management tasks in your StorNext environment, and makes it easier to set up and manage workflows by shortening the time it takes to deploy or upgrade a StorNext environment.
The Xcellis solution specified by StorExcel not only enables us to take advantage of Quantum's powerful StorNext platform but also allows us to start with the capacity and performance we need now, and then scale up the storage system economically as those needs change.Andrew Moraski
