Cloud Reporter for System Center is a robust capacity planning solution for private clouds based on Microsoft’s Hyper-V. Plan for the future and meet your service level objectives, with the ability to predict when memory, processors and storage resources will be exhausted.
Prevent Unplanned Downtime
Estimates vary, but on average, businesses lose between $84,000 and $108,000 for every hour of IT system downtime. Companies can minimize unplanned downtime with Cloud Reporter by knowing when cloud resources are going to be exhausted long before it happens. IT departments can take preventative measures – free-up resources from idle virtual machines, right-size active virtual machines – and keep business applications running smoothly.
Reveal Upcoming Capacity Issues
Reports in Cloud Reporter show current capacity demands of the virtualized infrastructure as well as projected future requirements based on current consumption patterns. Companies know in advance when they will run out of resources, and can eliminate surprise hardware expenditures.
Avert Capacity Issues
Companies get the greatest utilization of current memory, processor and disk resources so they can spend less on hardware over time. Cloud Reporter indicates the timeframe in which resources will become exhausted and it also offers suggestions to prolong that timeline. Built-in reports identify Hyper-V clusters with excess hardware capacity so IT departments can target them as the destination for new virtual machines and make better use of the resources the cluster already has.
Faster Decision Making
One of the biggest challenges for IT Administrators is sharing pertinent information with budget holders and decision makers. Without the right information in an easy to understand format, decisions get delayed and the risk of downtime goes up. Cloud Reporter solves this problem with reports that can be shared easily and instantly via export to PDF or Excel.
With Cloud Reporter, you can:
- Predict resource exhaustion
- Identify idle virtual machines
- Right size your virtual machines
- Powered off virtual machines
- Integrate with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager
- Leverage the native features of SQL Reporting Services
