Dell DPACK: Dell Performance Anaylsis Collection Kit
The Dell™ Performance Analysis Collection Kit (DPACK), recently re-named Live Optics, helps you optimise spending and analyse opportunities for virtualisation or data center expansion.
Introducing DPACK / Live Optics
In an effort to help guide customers through mission critical IT decisions, Dell’s team of solution experts have developed an innovative new tool – the Dell Performance Analysis Collection Kit or DPACK. Through a simply-run program, DPACK produces an output that gives you the confidence and knowledge you need to make the right decisions for your business.
This complimentary tool will help you make the most impactful IT solution recommendations, whether it’s reducing wasteful spending or analysing opportunities for virtualisation or datacenter expansion. With DPACK, you can get a true sense of your current IT environment and identify areas for further optimisation.
Understand your environment
DPACK runs remotely and agentless to gather core requirements such as disk IO, throughput, capacity and memory utilisation and produces an in-depth view of server workload and capacity requirements. DPACK has the ability to generate two kinds of reports: an aggregation of resource needs across disparate servers with a simulation of those workloads if consolidated to shared resources and an indepth individual server report to be used by IT administrators to search for potential bottlenecks or hotspots that need to be engineered out of a new design.
Your performance is unique to you. DPACK / Live Optics gives you a safe and simple way to record and communicate your performance fingerprint.
DPACK runs remotely and agentless to gather core requirements, including:
- Disk I/O (input/output)
- Capacity and memory installation
- Server workload and capacity requirements
With this tangible data, DPACK generates two types of reports:
- An aggregation of resource needs across disparate severs, with a simulation of those workloads if consolidated to shared resources
- An in-depth individual server report to help you find and resolve potential bottlenecks or hotspots
Using the recorded data, a Solutions Architect can help you look for ways to optimise your data center and plan for upcoming critical projects. During this conversation, you will also be supplied with a detailed report and the resulting accumulated metrics and what they mean for your business. As your total solution partner, we will work with you every step of the way to make the most impactful business decisions from the results.
Through the use of DPACK and the support of your account team, you will gain quick and impactful insight to your environment that will help you make the right decisions for your business.
