Storage Fusion expands portfolio

Storage Fusion, the storage analytics specialist, has unveiled Storage Resource Analysis Consultant Edition (SRA CE), a fully-automated storage assessment SaaS solution for IT sales professionals from vendors, resellers and system integrators. The SRA Consultant Edition generates a new set of consultant reports, specifically designed for storage consultants. This characteristic is not available with other editions of the product, and also features a new topology view of the storage estate. Storage assessments are automated and quick to run, taking an average of just a couple of hours to complete.

Storage Fusion’s SRA Consultant Edition is an extremely powerful pre-sales and professional services tool; sales professionals can quickly analyse the storage estate of a prospective customer to then create a business case based on accurate metrics and statistics provided by the technology itself and not therefore prone to human error. This shortens the business case creation stage from weeks to just hours giving the user a distinct advantage of time and accuracy compared to competitors creating the report manually using traditional methods.

“SRA Consultant Edition allows IT sales professionals to become much more productive and to prepare significantly better quality business cases without the need for specialist training,” said Peter White, Operations Director, at Storage Fusion. “Using SRA Consultant Edition the partner is able to offer light-touch storage assessments, audits or health checks and quickly become the trusted advisor; they normally know more about the storage infrastructure than the customer.”

SRA Consultant Edition is particularly suited to the analysis of 50TB+ datacentres as these are traditionally difficult to assess manually. Compared to traditional Storage Resource Management (SRM) tools, Storage Fusion’s technology is not disruptive and offers immediate results, along with quicker and higher ROI. Differently to alternative solutions, SRA Consultant Edition is agentless and does not require onsite hardware or software. It is subscription based and users can purchase one-off or bundles of licences. An on-premise version of the SRA service can be provided for partners running a significant number of assessments. Another one of its attractions is that it is priced according to the size of the storage estate to be analysed, making it very attractive financially.

“Because SRA Consultant Edition will be carried by vendors, system integrators and resellers around the world it gives Storage Fusion a presence in every country that we have partner relationships in,” continued White. “We see this as an opportunity to secure significant growth and stronger relationships”.
