Whitepaper: How To Monitor, Troubleshoot and Optimize with Cloud Insights
Monitor resources across any environment and analyze how relationships between them impact each other
Control usage and optimize by identifying waste, increasing utilization and density of compute and storage
Determine the available headroom to prevent infrastructure saturation and right size application resources to prevent performance problems
NetApp Cloud Insights is a SaaS based monitoring tool that helps you quickly find performance problems and optimize usage of your workloads: any infrastructure, any application, in your own datacenter or in the cloud. It is easy to be up and running fast, giving you real-time data visualization of the availability, performance, and utilization of your entire IT infrastructure.
If you’re planning a transition to the cloud or already managing hybrid storage or compute resources, you’ll know how challenging it is to consistently monitor and analyze multi-vendor infrastructure and cross-platform applications. Cloud Insights helps by providing a consistent view of your environment to effectively manage headroom to minimize performance issues, and quickly triage and pinpoint the root cause of incidents to reduce mean time to resolution.
Cloud Insights allow you to:
Cloud Insights will quickly inventory what resources you have, discover interdependencies across them, and assemble a topology of your environment. This means that you have end-to-end visibility into what infrastructure resources are supporting which applications or business units, regardless of whether the resources are in the cloud or on premises.

*Available for environments of 500 managed units and larger
Pricing is based on the number of Managed Units (MUs) you wish to monitor.
An MU is defined as:
|Compute:||1 Managed Unit = 2 hosts (virtual or physical)|
|Storage:||1 Managed Unit = 4 TiB of unformatted external capacity in a physical or virtual storage
(doesn't account for the compute local storage)
For example, if you have 100 hosts and 100 TiB of storage, you would purchase (100/2) + (100/4) = 75 MUs.
