    TeamQuest Corp. today announced the availability of a single KPI that gauges the overall performance health of a system or application in near real-time, called TeamQuest Performance Indicator (TPI).

    Using a simple, easy-to-understand scale from zero to 100, TPI is calculated automatically and provides a simple key performance indicator for overall health. Competitive solutions typically combine several KPIs using simple math to create an overall health KPI. But TPI incorporates more sophisticated analysis that actually understands the queuing behavior of computer systems.

    “TPI is far superior to anything else available in the industry,” said Director of Product Management Scott Adams. “We're providing an easy way to see and understand the true performance health of your systems and applications. You don't have to sift through tons of disparate metrics only to draw your own conclusions. TPI is simple, automated and accurate.”

    TeamQuest also announced it's new TeamQuest Storage Capacity Management solution that allows users to seamlessly analyze the performance and capacity of SAN storage systems and other infrastructure together. A capability new to the industry, this application-to-virtual server-to-physical server-storage system analysis helps troubleshoot, manage, and optimize virtualized cloud environments.

    The TeamQuest solution allows a more comprehensive multi-tiered analysis for the entire IT infrastructure that contributes to overall performance, including business data as well as performance data regarding physical servers, guest systems, and storage.

    “This solution integrates performance analysis and reporting across multiple tiers, giving a true big picture of combined storage and server technologies supporting the performance of business services,” said Director of Product Management Scott Adams. “Unlike standalone storage or server-centric products, this is a fully integrated solution that uniquely analyzes and reports capacity and performance from the business service all the way down to storage.”

    1. Seamlessly analyze storage and other infrastructure — together

    2. Rapidly understand when storage is the bottleneck, why, and what services are impacted

    3. Report on who or what is using how much, and when

    “The TeamQuest storage solution uniquely spans servers, applications and storage to provide a single pane of glass view of the environment,” said Adams.
