The StorageVIEW utility is one of three free tools vKernel recently made available for download in an effort to attract new users to VKernel's data center capacity management software suite. This Search Server Virtualization report claims that virtualization admins say it's an easier way to collect information on storage latency in virtualized environments than with VMware's vCenter, and easier to deploy than VKernel's licensed Capacity Analyzer tool.


Virtualization admins claim StorageVIEW is easier than VMware's vCenter and VKernel's licensed Capacity Analyzer tool.

"The StorageVIEW utility is one of three free tools vKernel recently made available for download. Previously released free modules are AppVIEW and CapacityVIEW, which report on the top five most critical virtualized applications selected by an administrator and on the CPU and memory capacity of physical hosts. StorageVIEW identifies the top five storage I/O performance bottlenecks in a virtualized environment.

"Given its limited scope, StorageVIEW is unlikely to find favor with storage administrators. But virtualization admins say it's an easier way to collect information on storage latency in virtualized environments than with VMware's vCenter, and easier to deploy than VKernel's licensed Capacity Analyzer tool."
