BVQ Service as perfect addition

BVQ system experts from our partners or from SVA own high experience in analysis and best practices for IBM storage systems. Also, the so-called 'Storage Health Check' is offered with BVQ, representing a very deep analysis of the current memory situation. For complex storage bottlenecks the BVQ team is at your disposal to determine the cause and to find a solution quickly.

New and innovative service concepts

In many cases, a  monthly report including all important information about the storage situation is sufficient. Then, a cost-effective service is offered by BVQ which  creates and provides a clearly organized monthly report based on measurement data obtained from SVC. The special feature here:  thereby historical performance data is archived for a longer period archived, which can also be used  later for performance analysis.

Typical forms of analysis

Analysis can be a very broad term - a distinction can be roughly made between planned and unplanned analyses. Unplanned analysis is a critical bottleneck examination, where it is important to respond in a short time to eliminate the bottleneck. The planned analysis can be divided into regular technical Health Checks or Storage Expansion Analyses. With the help of a Health Check the performance of the storage is tested to make improvements in the case of need. With a Storage Expansion Analysis the measured performance needs are compared with an assessment for the planned future storage-expansion. Here, the goal is to find the best cost-optimal storage configuration possible.
