Types of Actionable Insights
DIS is built on the concept of delivering insights that are not simply alert-based, but actionable and prioritized by severity and type. Severity levels are determined by the potential impact to uptime and performance of your storage infrastructure. The types of actionable insights DIS delivers include predictive, known issues, and best practices. Predictive insights provide a forward-looking view of critical configuration metrics such as when capacity limits will be reached based on historical usage trends.
Known issues insights deliver predictive failure or performance degradation issues based on comparison of your environment against the 20+ years of aggregate data in our customer support database. Similarly, best practices insights will alert you when there are specific configurations within your environment that would yield better results if modified. DIS insights are all actionable, meaning they are delivered in an easy-to-use format, with clickable buttons to immediately take prescriptive remediation steps.
We recommend that you grant access to your DataCore partner so they have visibility into the same insights that you see. This allows partners to work as a trusted advisor through close collaboration to avoid foreseeable problems, save time for both of you and ensure that your environment is always optimized.
DIS is an integrated capability of DataCore SANsymphony, including HCI-Flex hyperconverged infrastructure appliance. They are only available on subscription licensing, require DataCore SANsymphony V10 PSP9 or later and a secure internet connection from the DataCore instances.
