If you could reclaim thousands of dollars in storage space in only 15 minutes would you?
Of course you would. Sanofi did, and you can too, with CloudPhysics Free Edition.
Sanofi, one of the world’s top pharmaceutical companies uses CloudPhysics datacenter analytics to help transform their global operations for greater efficiency and performance.
One of the big surprises for the Sanofi team, especially Joachim Heppner who runs Virtualization Engineering Services, was uncovering a huge amount of wasted storage when they ran the Snapshots Gone Wild Card (available in our Free Edition). Says Heppner:
One of the big problems we uncovered and corrected quickly was snapshots. Unbeknownst to us, we had 17 TB of snapshots wasting space. With CloudPhysics, we were able to easily identify and clean that up.
Finding this reclaimable space took just minutes but resulted in huge savings (estimated at more than $100,000). Running a periodic one-click check ensures that Sanofi continues to control snapshot waste for sustained storage efficiency.
Based on Sanofi’s experience, we reviewed our global data set from all our users and found that most companies have significant snapshot bloat relative to the size of their infrastructure, with the potential to reclaim wasted storage and tens of thousands of IT budget dollars − just by fixing that one issue.
See for yourself. CloudPhysics Free Edition is available to you on our website (requires VMware vSphere 4.1 or higher). It takes about 15 minutes to install and with a single click on Snapshots Gone Wild, you will immediately see your reclaimable space.
It’s fast, free, and easy – and may just make you an instant IT hero.
