Modern SAN Fabric Health Assessment at your fingertips

Cisco® SAN Insights Discovery identifies SAN fabric health and facilitates a view into device performance while also providing recommendations for improvement.

Overview

Most company’s SAN fabrics have been operating for years without issues. Yet, how can organizations be confident that potential issues are not lurking right around the corner? Are the end-of-life dates on those devices known and planned for accordingly? Cisco SAN Insights Discovery can help identify issues before they escalate and can place organizations comfortably ahead of the refresh curve.

Cisco SAN Insights Discovery provides the visibility necessary to assess current deployments and inventory. The proactive tool also offers a sneak peek into port performance, provides a view of data at both fabric and switch levels and identifies End-Of-Life (EOL) and End-Of-Service (EOS) notifications for all SAN switches.

The contemporary design and architecture and user-friendly interface brings dull data to life with an easy-to-navigate user experience.
