Machine Learning Analytics Software Platform Podcast – Episode 233
In episode 233, Douglas Brown interviews Jerry Melnick, Chief Operating Officer at SIOS Technology Corp. Jerry and Douglas discuss the new SIOS iQ machine learning analytics software platform. Jerry does a great job diving deep in to SIOS iQ, what it is, how it works, why we should care and much more! Truly a much listen to episode!
About SIOS iQ
SIOS iQ is a machine learning analytics software platform designed to be your primary resource for IT operations information and issue resolution. SIOS iQ optimizes VMware environments to ensure business critical application environments are optimized for performance, efficiency, reliability, and capacity.
Major features of the standard edition of SIOS iQ include:
Performance Root Cause Analysis learns the relationships of objects and their normal patterns of behavior in a VMware infrastructure (hosts, VMs, application, network, storage, etc.); proactively identifies anomalies in behavior and the root causes of performance problems in any application; and recommends specific changes to resolve those problems.
SIOS PERC Dashboard™ enables IT managers to quickly and easily ensure their VMware environment is optimized along four key quality of service dimensions: performance, efficiency, reliability and capacity (PERC). Provides mobile application ease of-use. The standard edition of SIOS iQ includes a variety of user enhancements, including the ability to expand charts to drill deeply into specific PERC areas, color-coded status indicators showing the criticality of issues – critical, warning and informational, and the inclusion of performance impact analysis showing all applications, VMs, hosts and data stores associated with a detected performance problem.
Specialized Analytics for SQL Server provides advanced insight into performance issues associated with SQL Server deployments in VMware. SIOS iQ standard edition correlates interactions between SQL and infrastructure resources in the VMware environment to identify the deep root cause of performance issues.
Enhanced Host Based Caching feature helps IT staff to easily determine how to improve storage performance for applications by using server side storage and host based caching (HBC). It analyzes the environment, including all blocks written to disk, and identifies the read ratio and the load profile to identify the VMs (and their disks) that will benefit most from HBC. SIOS iQ makes specific configuration recommendations such as how much cache to add and what cache block size to configure. It predicts the added performance that will be achieved if recommendations are implemented and shows the results in a single, easy-to-read chart.
SIOS iQ Resource Optimization features. New standard edition of SIOS iQ provides an enhanced user interface for optimizing VMware resources by identifying and eliminating idle VMs and snapshot sprawl. SIOS iQ identifies under-used virtual machines and unnecessary snapshots and predicts the potential monthly savings that can be realized by eliminating them.
