iWave Software Announces Storage Automator v6
New, out-of-box storage automation software is the first to offer policy-based, end-to-end automation of storage provisioning, reclamation and remediation services
iWave Software, a leading provider of storage and cloud automation solutions, today announced iWave Storage Automator version 6 (v6), a storage automation software product that lets enterprise IT organizations and service providers deliver Storage as a Service using their existing storage environments. By allowing end users to provision their own storage via a service portal, iWave Storage Automator v6 helps IT organizations lower storage operating costs, support more storage with fewer administrators and improve end user satisfaction, while enforcing best practices for storage provisioning.
Storage Automator v6 will be available to qualified customers on July 23, 2012, with general availability planned for September 2012.
“The goal of storage automation software like iWave Storage Automator is to have less people spend less time focused on managing storage,” said George Crump, CEO of analyst firm Storage Switzerland. “While not a replacement for skilled storage administrators, these next-generation storage automation products incorporate concepts from the cloud automation world and offer the promise of significant productivity gains by enabling administrators to create and offer automated storage services directly to their users via a self-service portal and catalog.”
Organizations can deploy iWave Storage Automator v6 within the walls of their data center to offer their end users secure, automated storage provisioning through a private storage cloud. Service providers can deploy iWave Storage Automator v6 to both end user and corporate customers over the Internet as a public storage cloud service.
