As many of you know, we have combined Storage Profiler with Virtual and Server Profiler to create a new product called Storage Manager, giving you the abilities and coverage of both products with simple "per disk" licensing. 

However, for current Storage Profiler customers, we also are releasing a new version of Storage Profiler (v5.0.1) that is based on the same platform as the Storage Manager product.  This new release continues its current licensing model (per disk), but now includes:

  • Monitoring Fibre Channel Switches
  • Integration with Orion platform
  • Support for the EMC VNX and IBM v7000 arrays

Also, since the products share a platform, future development to support new arrays (as well as improvements to currently supported arrays) will be available for both Storage Manager and Storage Profiler.

We will notify you once the release is available. Storage Profiler customers under current maintenance will be able to download Storage Profiler 5.0.1 in the customer portal. If you wish to move to Storage Manager, please contact your sales representative at virtualization@solarwinds.com for pricing.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
