What’s the best way to monitor and manage your data storage environment? No one wants to juggle 10 or 20 different tools but trying to do everything with just one tool has its own set of challenges. The optimal solution is what I call “complementary specialization”—several applications, each with a differentiated purpose, working together to share information and to provide a seamless experience.
Complementary specialization is the approach that NetApp takes with NetApp® Active IQ®, Cloud Insights, and Active IQ Unified Manager (formerly OnCommand® Unified Manager). Each has a differentiated purpose, but they’re complementary products that help you simplify monitoring, management, protection, and optimization of your hybrid multicloud infrastructure.
At a high level, I think of these products as working together to provide you with deep and wide coverage:
