Nexsan, a Thousand Oaks, Calif.-based provider of unified hybrid data storage systems, is partnering with Cumulus Systems, a Mountain View, Calif.-based supplier of virtual and physical optimization solutions, to provide a free, seven-day assessment of enterprise customers’ VMware environment performance. The assessment helps businesses understand what configuration changes are needed to allow their virtual environments to run more efficiently.
Deploying VMware creates significant challenges in sizing the servers and storage correctly according to application performance needs. Cumulus Systems’ MARS product measures detailed performance over a period of time for an entire virtual environment from the server through the storage. It then analyzes the data and recommends solutions. The free assessment is available through December 2012.
