Data Management Glossary
Storage Insights is console that is included in all editions of Komprise including Komprise Analysis and Komprise Elastic Data Management. Komprise has always provided visibility across heterogeneous storage on data, including how data is being used, how fast it’s growing, who is using it, what data is hot and cold, and where it lives. Storage Insights delivers a Data Stores console that adds storage metrics to these data metrics to further simplify file and object data management.
For example, in one view you can see all your storage organized by data center locations and clouds and view the capacity, free %, data size, data growth, growth %, cold data, department the share belongs to, etc. Storage Insights is a management console to quickly understand both data usage and storage consumption as well as where you add new data stores for analysis and data management activities.
Why Storage Insights?
Increasingly distributed and multi-storage enterprise IT organizations are frustrated that each storage vendor tends to report free space or storage consumption differently and they have to search across different places for this information. By adding storage metrics and a personalizable interfacev to Komprise Intelligent Data Management, customers do not have to look in multiple places and they get one consistent definition and view of their storage metrics as well as data metrics. Komprise unifies both data and storage insights in a single console with Storage Insights. This enables customers to easily spot trends like – which shares have the most anomalous activity or which shares are filling up the fastest or which shares are owned by a particular department that have a lot of cold data, etc.
