Client Quotes

New externally approved quotes to drive awareness around the newly released version of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and Virtual Storage Center

"The new dynamic application capability is a powerful new efficiency feature in IBM's latest release of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and Virtual Storage Center.  Once grouping patterns are defined for Storage and/or Servers,  individual entities are discovered/removed from the Application or Department group automatically. This "set and forget it" approach substantially reduces the amount of ongoing maintenance required - freeing up valuable IT resources."
- Stan Abramovich, Technical Solutions Designer,  Kohl's Department Stores

"The new grouping function within IBM's Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and Virtual Storage Center is very impressive.  I can now associate my storage resources with applications and departments which provides clarity on usage, and ultimately allows me to accurately charge application owners and department heads based on consumption."
- Marco van Meurs, Storage Specialist, Inframatica

"The recent addition of Dynamic Applications to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center (TPC) and IBM SmartCloud Virtual Storage Center (VSC) allows organizations to take a much consumer oriented view of storage. The ability to group volumes or servers within applications and departments simplifies tasks such as reporting, chargeback and pinpointing issues affecting performance."  
- Chris Aveta, Manager of Advanced Infrastructure Services, Micro Strategies Inc.

"The addition of Dynamic Applications is particularly helpful for larger clients with several storage arrays and thousands of volumes.  This newly released capability delivers context, allowing administrators to easily create logical groupings of storage resources into different areas of storage like development, test and production, across departments such as HR and Finance or associated with applications such as ERP or CRM systems."

- Chris Aveta, Manager of Advanced Infrastructure Services, Micro Strategies Inc.

"Server Multi-path Reporting is a great addition to the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center and Virtual Storage Center arsenal. This delivers improved insights into the end-to-end health of the storage system and simplifies identifying any point of service degradation as the users can more easily monitor multiple paths without having to log in to individual components."
