Organizations that go through digital transformation adopt a variant of hybrid cloud or multi-cloud IT infrastructure. Pretty standard. There are some organizations that maintain on-premise data storage even after undergoing digital transformation, though. That seems to make the IT landscape more complex.
Well, therein lies the question. How are they able to manage and monitor multi-faceted IT networks efficiently?
It is ideal to have a view of everything on a cloud-based unified management dashboard, and Nfina provides just that. Nfina-View improves IT responsiveness and efficiency by enabling IT administrators and MSPs to see important information about their organization at a glance. It integrates data from an IT infrastructure, including servers, storage pools and networking, and provides a summarized view of the entire data network.
The summary view allows IT admins and MSPs to:
- View zones, clusters and node details such as status, IP address, uptime, memory health, CPU utilization, memory and DiskPool information.
- View hardware details that include the health of the power supplies, fans, motherboard voltages, and hard drives.
- View storage pool details that provide information for the storage pool status, capacity, Zvols, datasets, read cache, snapshots and clones.
- View network details that display the hostname and interface details.
- Set up trigger alerts to notify administrators of potential issues.
“Organizations of all industries and sizes who desire an interface providing real-time and historical data on system state and performance will benefit from our software,” said Warren Nicholson, President and CEO of Nfina.
But what makes Nfina-View truly stand out when compared to its competitors?
Unlike competitor dashboards, Nfina-View provides on-prem and cloud monitoring, plus failover, rollback, and disaster recovery testing capabilities, which are simple operations and do not require rebuilding and repopulating data.
If the primary system fails or a proactive shift of workloads is necessary, IT admins can failover and restore operations at a secondary location to keep downtime at a minimum.
Nfina-View also restores a system's state to an earlier point in time, using built-in rollback functionality. This process is critical if a ransomware attack occurs and corrupts the IT ecosystem. During a ransomware attack, the rollback functionality can have all of the customers' data back online within minutes.
Additionally, Nfina-View includes automated disaster recovery testing that allows administrators to power on and connect to virtual machines in the DR location. Backups are critical and are only effective if they are ready to go. But that is the thing. Most IT teams do not test backups.
Nfina-View's disaster recovery testing allows IT teams and MSPs to test their backups in their location, giving that peace of mind that Nfina-View can restore systems if needed.
The days of on-prem are becoming a thing in the past. Designed for hybrid IT, gain a better view of the IT ecosystem with Nfina-View.
