Optimize your hybrid IT infrastructure with SystemInspection Service


With a rising flood of data and the increasing complexity of data management and protection in the digital world (both on-premise and/or in the Cloud), organizations are making the analysis and optimization of their data-driven IT landscape a priority. Until now, it has been difficult to get a complete picture of the storage and backup capacity of an IT organization, since the dedicated tools of storage and backup system providers offer only a vendor-specific view of the systems.

The new FUJITSU SystemInspection Service for Storage is designed to address that challenge. It provides a comprehensive overview of your hybrid IT landscape to help optimize your storage and backup infrastructure. The assessment provides end-to-end reports on the storage capacity from the hosts to the storage system and shows backup inconsistencies and the current physical storage capacity of the virtualized environments, giving you a valid basis for making decisions.

Fujitsu offers two new assessment services for data center optimization, enabling enterprises to define their baseline for data-driven transformation:

  • The FUJITSU SystemInspection Service for SAP solutions builds an inventory of operational SAP environments, creating a holistic view of performance and resource utilization
  • The FUJITSU SystemInspection Service for Storage provides a single pane of glass across heterogeneous physical and virtual storage environments, both on premises and in the Cloud


Our IT system inspection services support you in optimizing your data center resources – including improving storage and SAP utilization, reducing CAPEX, mitigating risk, and strengthening your data protection and audit compliance.

In this blog, our focus will be on the SystemInspection Service for Storage.


SystemInspection Service for Storage based on Veritas APTARE™ IT Analytics

The FUJITSU SystemInspection Service for Storage assists in identifying and eliminating information silos and data protection risks. It analyzes and correlates customer data from up to 30,000 unique data points across backups, storage, hosts, hypervisors and storage networks. The service then consolidates findings through a single console, providing a homogeneous overall view of storage and backup systems. Its customized dashboards encourage optimization of resources and help to reduce operational costs.

The service also helps to predict failures, to mitigate the risk of missed SLAs, and to align SLAs with business goals. The analysis report enables a streamlined chargeback reporting process across hybrid IT landscapes, eliminating hours of manual research, reducing storage consumption and consolidating tools. Customers get actionable conclusions to streamline audit and compliance needs, reduce data protection complexity and mitigate policy conflicts and human errors.
