Storage Fusion today announced the newest release of its comprehensive Storage Resource Analysis (SRA) service using a flat-rate pricing model that sets a new standard for cost effective SaaS (Software as a Service) delivery. The new release of SRA combines all of Storage Fusion’s analytic modules into a single unified service with a small monthly subscription fee. Using non-intrusive SaaS technology, SRA delivers enterprise analytics at a fraction of the cost of consultant services or on-premise resource management applications.

Since its launch less than a year ago, SRA has helped organizations reclaim petabytes of storage capacity and has provided CIOs with the information they need to reduce capital expense and optimize the performance of their heterogeneous storage estates.

The updated release includes a comprehensive set of analytics that report on system utilization, capacity allocation, and disk tiering based on workgroup classifications. It also includes the recently announced environmental module that calculates power consumption of storage hardware down to individual disk drives.

In the past, Storage Fusion’s SRA service fees were based on the amount of disk storage capacity being analyzed. The new model eliminates this multilevel pricing structure. SRA’s complete range of enterprise class analytics is included in the flat monthly service charge regardless of the total storage capacity or number and location of data centers.

“With IT budgets under close scrutiny, CIOs are using our SRA service to cut capital expense and optimize the utilization of their expensive storage resources. All of our customers have told us just how valuable this service is, with most organizations seeing a full return on their yearly investment with the first month’s analysis. Such rapid ROI has allowed us to secure service contracts with a growing number of global blue-chip organizations,” explains Ian Smith, group CEO.
