SolidFire logoBOULDER - SolidFire, a leader in all-flash storage systems built for the Next Generation Data Center, announced the release of Active IQ, a system monitoring and reporting tool that provides real-time health diagnostics and historical trending data for SolidFire storage systems.

With Active IQ, SolidFire said its customers now have visibility to all key metrics across the entire SolidFire storage infrastructure, including all individual and geographically disperse clusters through a single pane of glass.

"As enterprises move away from reactive break/fix support models towards proactive data-driven management, they require more sophisticated tools to help them monitor and manage large-scale IT infrastructure," said Adam Carter, SolidFire VP of product management.

"Most monitoring tools in use today were developed around spinning disk and have not kept pace with the changes in how storage infrastructure is allocated or consumed.

"SolidFire's real-time monitoring and trending data empowers IT managers with greater management and control over all of their SolidFire infrastructure and enables quick triage of issues affecting the business."

Active IQ is a key addition to SolidFire's Active Support, which delivers customers proactive monitoring and system support 24/7 anywhere in the world, the company said.

Active IQ receives and stores telemetry data from SolidFire storage systems as frequently as every 10 seconds and maintains that data up to five years for use in long-term trending and analysis, the company said.
