Optimize resource utilization

Effective resource management lets engineers and administrators proactively reduce waste and maximize utilization as part of their daily workflows to prevent performance bottlenecks and do more with less.

Business unit owners and budget holders can supercharge their decision-making abilities by using the integrated business intelligence reporting studio, making the most of the wealth of metrics collected by Cloud Insights.

Powerful visualization

Where can I reclaim AWS or Azure Waste? Where do I have ONTAP latency issues? Where are there opportunities to right-size my VMware clusters?

A built-in gallery instantly creates dashboards that answer these questions and many more.

Customizing dashboards or creating your own couldn’t be easier, with an extensive set of visualization types and an intuitive dashboard creation interface that lets you apply filter and finders to minimise noise.

Machine learning

Your infrastructure and applications are too complex to expect administrators to understand all the ways one component could impact another.

That’s’ why Cloud Insights will automatically build topologies to correlate metrics. This detects where there are greedy or degraded resources, and resource contention.

Editions pricing

There are two types of ways Cloud Insights can collect data in your environment, depending whether the source of the data is infrastructure or a service.
Infrastructure assets include hardware resources in your own data center and cloud providers. To collect from these assets an acquisition unit is required. This is a lightweight VM that you control, and is used to securely transmit data to Cloud Insights.
Service assets are applications and servers in the environment. Metrics can be directly collected from these assets without an acquisition unit.

* Available for environments of 500 managed units and larger
+API access varies by edition

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 TB 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 TB of storage, you would purchase (100/2) + (100/4) = 75 MUs.
