One of the biggest frustrations of IT managers is the difficulty aligning IT with the key priorities of their organization.   American Megatrends Incorporated (AMI), an American hardware and software company that specializes in PC hardware and firmware, released StorTrends iDATA (Intelligent Data Analysis) Tracking Application which is a free software tool designed to provide accurate assessment of IT infrastructure performance, capacity, and throughput requirements.

The StorTrends iDATA tool measures the necessary components of an IT infrastructure and provides assessed pain points in an environment before they become disruptive.  The tool provides the details needed to make informed storage decisions. The software can run, non-intrusively, in the background of an existing IT environment for seven days.

The StorTrends iDATA tool can identify the active or hot data within a customer’s environment.  The StorTrends iDATA tool can be ran on users existing setups and will identify the key metric to identify the user profile as a Light, Medium, Power Standard or Power Heavy user

Phil Blakely, Network & Systems Administrator at Restaurant Technology, Inc said in a statement, “As a result we are planning to implement another StorTrends SAN Array knowing that we can maximize its performance and leverage the exact amount of flash capacity we need to optimize our applications and support our customers. It removed the guesswork and gave use the confidence that we needed to select the proper SAN configuration for our requirements today and for the future.”

The StorTrends iDATA tool can identify the performance in regards to reads versus writes, the total IOPS and the throughput. This allows the customer to identify the type and quantity of disk required for their refresh.

Justin Bagby, Director of the StorTrends Division at American Megatrends  said, “With the StorTrends iDATA software tool, we are eliminating those unknown factors that can cause critical storage headaches down the road. This allows the organization to make precise purchasing and upgrade decisions for all data storage types such as All-Flash Storage, Hybrid Storage or Spinning Disk Storage.”
