For those of you who didn’t know, Storage Resource Monitor 6.8 is currently available for download! This release continues our momentum of supporting new arrays that you all requested on THWACK® as well as deepening our already existing support for the most popular arrays.
Why don’t we go over some of what’s new in SRM with the 6.8 release?
NEW ARRAY SUPPORT - KAMINARIO®
We’re all really excited here about our newest supported array vendor: Kaminario®. With Kaminario® being an enterprise storage vendor that has a lot of exciting progress going on, we’re really excited to say that we now support their arrays, starting with K2 and K2.N devices. And we think that you will be to, if the voting in THWACK has anything to say about it.
Best of all, out of the box, this new support includes all the standard features you know and love: capacity utilization and forecasting, performance monitoring, end-to-end mapping in AppStack™, integrated performance troubleshooting in PerfStack™, and Hardware Health.
And, as always, we’re excited to share some screenshots.
Hardware Health View
NEW HARDWARE HEALTH SUPPORT - DELL® COMPELLENT AND HPE 3PAR
Whether you’re a new customer to SRM or you’ve been a customer for a while, you know that there is a lot to be had when we extend support for an array to hardware health. With SRM 6.8, we focused on adding hardware health support to those arrays most popular with our customers. And so, we’re excited to announce hardware health support for Dell® Compellent and HPE 3PAR arrays. So now, starting in SRM 6.8, digging into these array types allows you to see details on fans, power supplies, batteries, and more.
A screenshot? Of course.
Add in some bug fixes and smaller changes and you have SRM 6.8. We’re excited for you all to check it out.
If there are any other features that didn’t make it into SRM 6.8 but that you would like to see, make sure to add it to our Storage Manager (Storage Profiler) Feature Requests forum. But before you do, head over to the What We're Working On page to see what the storage team already has in the works for upcoming releases.
And as always, comments welcome below.
