HOPKINTON, Mass. -- EMC Corporation, the world leader in information management and storage, today unveiled the market's first management solution that brings automated root-cause and impact analysis to network-attached storage (NAS) - EMC Smarts IP Availability Manager for NAS. The solution automates real-time root-cause analysis of all critical network availability problems - including NAS IP connectivity - and identifies the service impact of these problems.

EMC Smarts IP Availability Manager for NAS auto-discovers NAS system elements as IP devices and supports EMC Celerra systems and NetApp filers. The software is an extension of EMC Smarts IP Availability Manager, which automates real-time root-cause analysis of critical IP network availability problems at all layers and calculates the impact of connectivity failures on related infrastructure elements. Both solutions leverage the patented EMC Smarts Common Information Model(tm) (ICIM) and Codebook Correlation Technology(tm) to automatically model and analyze the IP infrastructure.

"Today's complex IP networks comprise thousands of interconnected devices, including NAS elements. Any outage in any part of this infrastructure can cause a flood of alarms on the console screen - leaving operators trying to distinguish root-cause problems from their symptoms," said Chris Gahagan, Senior Vice President, Resource Management, EMC Software Group.

He continued, "EMC Smarts IP Availability Manager for NAS is the market's first solution to automate root-cause and impact analysis across IP networks - including NAS elements - pinpointing in real-time the service-affecting problems. By leveraging this automated root-cause analysis, operators can reduce the number of alarms they need to address, dramatically speeding mean-time-to-repair and improving overall IP network and NAS system availability."
