The solution has all the necessary features to bring down administrator overhead and is capable of charting a framework that can be used for real-time and predictive systems management and also for regulating SAN, NAS and parallel file storage environments.

“DDN's DirectMon takes the complexity out of managing even the world's largest Big Data environments, and enables our customers to deploy simple infrastructure capable of scaling up for deep storage capacity and scaling out for added storage capacity and performance. DirectMon increases our customers' agility as they continue to resolve critical growth and challenges in the Big Data era”, remarked Jean Luc Chatelain, executive vice president of Strategy and Technology at DDN, in a press release.
