The BVQ Storage reporting Service (SRS) is a solution which combines the strength of an onsite installed BVQ with the cost advantages of SaaS. SRS provides a very simple way for users to do storage monitoring by replacing time consuming monitoring steps with easy to understand reports. The SRS service is so sophisticated, that in case of unexpected performance problems a full BVQ analysis can be started immediately to quickly detect and fix any problems.
In many cases storage environments are very static and only extended from time to time. Here it is less important to perform daily monitoring and analysis but one must still keep an observant view eye on all the storage operations and capacity growth to avoid surprises.
To keep complexity low, the easiest way here is to work on reports which cover storage capacity growth and performance aspects.
In addition to this simplicity, it is desirable that also intensive analyses are possible at any time. The data used for reporting must be archived for a longer time to allow further analysis. Examples are planning for new storage, optimizations and performance bottleneck analysis.
Very deep knowledge and special experience is often needed for worthful analysis. Experts can help here with their special knowledge and experience.
BVQ SRS allows simple monitoring and enables appropriate analysis
With SRS a client with very low footprint is installed in the user data center, which collects the performance and capacity information and sends it to the next BVQ service point where it will be stored in fully qualified BVQ instances. All data transfer is encrypted.
An automated process is generating monthly performance and capacity reports which will be sent back to the user.
An optional part of the SRS service is the periodical health check. It is recommended to run health checks twice a year. This is the best way to keep the storage healthy and avoid unexpected problems (BVQ health check service)
BVQ/SRS data is an excellent base for capacity planning. This helps to reduce purchasing cost with a better understanding of measured performance and capacity needs prior to expansions. (BVQ planning analysis)
Most beneficial side effect on SRS is that all data is available for performance analysis at any time. The SRS scanner works continuously and collects all data, so if ever unexpected problems happen; the data is ready for analysis to overcome the performance problem quickly.
