Today DDN rolled out the DirectMon Monitoring and Administration Suite, a robust centralized management solution for the company’s storage, file system, and In-Storage Processing technology. With a unified interface designed to handle all aspects of Big Data storage infrastructure administration, DDN’s DirectMon minimizes administrator overhead and provides a comprehensive framework for both real-time and predictive systems management and tuning of SAN, NAS and parallel file storage environments.

DirectMon is immediately available for DDN’s SFA platforms, including the 6620, 10K and 12K series of products. Read the Full Story.
