Actionable predictive analytics and proactive management platform for Lenovo ThinkSystem storage

ThinkSystem Intelligent monitoring for optimal data management

Every company is creating, collecting, storing and processing massive amounts of data. This is a relentless challenge for storage owners to be proactive when it comes to storage health. Data science can help you stay ahead of potential problems and find opportunities to optimize – and it’s happening today for Lenovo customers.

Lenovo ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring is a cloud-based digital advisor that simplifies the proactive care and optimization of Lenovo ThinkSystem DE and DM Series storage. It uses the AIOps platform to uncover opportunities to improve the overall health of your systems, and then provides the insights, guidance, and actions to make it happen. We call this “actionable intelligence,” and it leads to higher availability, improved security, and simplified storage operations

Actionable intelligence

In data science, the volume, velocity, and variety of data matter. Each day, ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring receives AutoSupport telemetry data from thousands of storage systems that support diverse use cases around the globe, expanding a rich set of data for AIOps platform.

ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring continuously assesses this data, using predictive analytics and machine learning algorithms, to uncover risk factors and opportunities to improve system health, availability, and security. When a potential issue is identified, ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring can take immediate action or provide guidance to remediate a risk or optimize a configuration.

Proactive care and optimization

ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring makes it easy to achieve optimal storage health. It’s always on the lookout for risk factors, security vulnerabilities, outdated firmware, and failing hardware. It keeps an eye on systems reaching performance or capacity limits due to unexpected or rapid growth. Anything that might jeopardize system availability, security, or performance receives attention and action.

Simplified storage operations

Like any good advisor, ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring keeps you informed and highly efficient. It provides constant visibility into the health of your environment, lets you know when attention is required, and gives you clear guidance for any actions.

ThinkSystem Intelligent Monitoring alerts, insights, and guidance are available in the web UI for full-featured visibility into system health, best next actions, upgrades, and more.
