Check out the latest customer success story. Here's a link to the full article.
A major retailer uses TeamQuest Surveyor to analyze growth trends of thousands of systems containing tens of thousands of file systems each week. A few of these file systems will require intervention. However, finding out which ones would take IT staff many hours of laborious action, accessing each file system and individually determining the state it was in. Surveyor provides IT with a report on each file system automatically so that IT staff assigned to those file systems can check the report and zero in on the specific file systems that demand some attention. That way, they spend their time actively inspecting likely candidates for action rather than wasting time looking in places that are in good shape. The value of this approach is considerable. Every avoided outage saves thousands of dollars, and some might even save as much as tens of thousands of dollars. By focusing attention where it provides the most benefit, the Surveyor file system report allows IT to act more proactively in other areas.
