Accounting

The tool is able to provide base for your storage accounting based on allocated data in the time.
Capacity allocation data is stored per:
  • Pool
  • Tier
  • Volume
Capacity data is stored every hour.

Customers with premium support subscription can use a framework which exports capacity allocation data from the tool in the format required by each customer.

Output format options:
  • CSV
  • XLS
  • JSON
  • XML
  • PDF
  • Graphical in the UI

Further reporting options:
  • Raw capacity allocation (include RAID and spare disk overhead)
  • Automated creation and either saving in defined location or sending via email
  • One or more defined storages in single report
  • Daily/weekly/monthly or custom date based reports
  • REST API

Examples

  • Excel reports
