OCZ Technology today introduced an SSD management application that monitors and manages OCZ enterprise drives connected to network servers, storage arrays or appliances.
Developed as a network-accessible management system, OCZ's new StoragePro XL 1.1 securely connects to multiple host systems across the network and allows IT managers to centrally monitor and administer their enterprise flash resources from a web-based management interface. Supporting enterprise hosts running Linux and Windows operating systems, and featuring an easy-to-use web-based centralized GUI (graphical user interface), IT managers are afforded specific drive details on performance, reliability and operation. Along with the monitoring functionality, a user configurable alerting systems is provided that enables identification of any potential system and/or storage issues in advance enabling corrective actions to be initiated at an early stage.
The StoragePro XL GUI provides a structured group-based view of host and SSD activity throughout the data center. It offers
critical alert displays and warnings from hosts and connected SSDs, while it also performs checks and administrative tasks from firmware updates to printing detailed reports.
StoragePro XL supports OCZ's portfolio of enterprise SSDs including the Z-Drive PCIe Series, the Deneva 2 SATA Series, the Talos 2 SAS Series, the ZD-XL SQL Accelerator and the soon-to-be-released Intrepid 3000 SATA Series.
