NetApp buys Akorri to boost analytics

Acquisition will help users avoid data centre bottlenecks

Storage management company NetApp has bought data centre analytics specialist Akorri in an attempt to improve customers' ability to identify capacity bottlenecks and plan for capacity.

Massachusetts-based Akorri, which doubled its customer base in 2010, has been deployed particularly within virtualisation environments where the product has been used to reduce costs involved in deploying virtualisation technology. Its BalancePoint product provides automated, infrastructure-wide visibility and analysis to help enterprises fix problems, optimise utilisation, and improve performance for both virtual and physical servers and storage

Following the all-cash acquisition, terms of which were not disclosed, the Akorri software will provide NetApp OnCommand with performance capacity analytics that will allow users greater visibility across the entire IT stack.

Manish Goel, executive vice president for product operations at NetApp said "The ability to accurately predict and manage performance and capacity requirements has been a common obstacle for many customers wanting to transition to a virtualised environment. Akorri further strengthens NetApp's data management capabilities to achieve greater quality of service and performance in their virtual and cloud environments"

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
