Overview: cost savings potential with BVQ
There are several areas in which BVQ can help to reduce procurement costs, operating costs and operating risks.
This document describes these areas where BVQ helps to save costs.
With measurements and appropriate presentation of results in the form of treemaps associated with IO density colorations, BVQ provides an excellent base to obtain a better assessment about the required amount of performance. In most cases this leads to the fact that companies can unlock large savings in storage acquisition and operation by using BVQ.
A storage system has no orga
Unexplained performance bottlenecks always lead to losses - either by rapid expansion to compensate the shortage of infrastructure, or by services which don´t work with the desired performance. Shortages can also lead to failure of servers and services. For these cases BVQ is a proven tool to find the causes and to eliminate them.
A storage administrator using BVQ, always works more proactive, than an administrator without these tools. With this procedure alone many problems can already be avoided in advance. Further improvements, in form of periodic health checks, can also be reached here by the additional involvement of external consultants.
BVQ enhances a SVC / Storwize system with new disciplines such as accounting, service level management, copy service management and the integration of VMware relevant information.
