Cluster Storage Monitor

Cluster Storage Monitor is an add-on to Superna Eyeglass® that automates the management of storage reporting, and quota administration. The add-on manages multiple clusters and offers chargeback reporting, searching and reporting of all quota types. 

 

Storage management tasks can be delegated to non technical Isilon administrators for quota and data recovery. All workflows use email notification to users and daily summary automated reports to administrators. Role based Access controls allow complete separation from DR related tasks in Superna Eyeglass®.
