What it does? APTARE StorageConsole 7.1 software increases the efficiency of storage management in the data center and reduces cost. It integrates backup storage capacity replication and server virtualization reporting into a single agentless Web 2.0 console. APTARE StorageConsole enables administrators to dramatically increase the efficiency and utilization of their storage.
The software discovers additional storage capacity in unused "dark" storage that can then be reclaimed and reused. This reduces costs by deferring purchases of additional storage to a later date.APTARE StorageConsole also provides predictive analysis that helps storage administrators forecast the growth of storage consumption including VMware environments. Forecasting reports improves the accuracy and process of capacity planning. APTARE also provides extensive chargeback reporting by storage tier that is essential for identifying and assigning the true cost of storage.
