Business Challenge story

Tectrade solves its clients’ challenges, from keeping data secure and compliant, to controlling data growth. To do this effectively, it wanted a solution to help it easily monitor and manage cloud-based storage, analyze clients’ environments, and identify performance issues early.


Tectrade implemented IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights, a cloud-based data and storage management service. The solution offers analytics-driven storage tier optimization, delivers more precise trend analysis over time with automatic learning, and enables users to reclaim unused storage capacity. William Bush, Technical Services Manager at Tectrade, comments, “Now we and our clients can quickly analyze storage environments and track data growth, and spot performance issues before they impact operations.”


With the IBM Spectrum Control solution in place, Tectrade can manage data far more efficiently in client landscapes, and can offer storage management as a service to its clients. William Bush notes, “The IBM Spectrum Control solution offers incredibly quick time-to-value, and can be up and running in 30 minutes. What’s more, it monitors tier data based on historical usage to reduce cost, can quickly identify reclaimable storage, and identifies and reallocates idle storage to maximize utilization. With such a powerful tool, we can solve our clients’ challenges faster and more cost-effectively than ever before.”
