The Canadian startup Lanamark continues to release new modules for its hosted capacity planning suite.
After the recent Desktop Analysis Pack, now the company launches a Storage Design Module.
The module assesses physical disks usage and I/O requirement, helping to properly size the SAN to host a virtual infrastructure for server consolidation or VDI scenarios.
This new component is also able to evaluate what-if scenarios taking care of technical constrains that may depend on the HBAs, FC switches and storage arrays that the customer wants to use.
Designing (or redesigning) a storage area network is one of the most critical and challenging tasks when embracing virtualization, and it’s where many companies discover many hidden costs.
Thus the new Storage Design Module is a needful component of the Lanamark Suite.
