Cloud-based Storage Resource Management for IBM Backup and Storage

Debriefing Software is a private company formed in 2003 and headquartered in Viby J, Denmark. An active member of the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA), Debriefing Software is a worldwide leader in cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for IBM TSM, Storwize and SVC with its innovative Wizards Storage Portal which currently analyses and monitors more than 60 thousand servers worldwide.

Wizards Storage Portal helps customers reduce costs while getting the most out of their storage and back-up environments. But Debriefing Software has taken this one step further with their solution. Wizards Storage Portal® is a proven solution that has been delivering results for years for an extensive customer base, including brands such as Bang & Olufsen and LEGO.

Industry experts: Debriefing Software is comfortably ahead of the pack

Debriefing Software co-founder and CEO Henrik Lind has more than 15 years of experience in managing customer data centers – and Henrik actually likens the Storage Resource Management solutions he has seen to “black boxes.”

In other words, you know that there is a lot going on “in there” but getting to it requires skill, patience and time – all of which is scarce in today’s business climate.

Storage Resource Management solutions govern critical customer data, yet we encountered solutions that offered no real means of either accessing or extracting timely and meaningful reports. I realized that SRM solutions needed to change - and that the way they were provided and managed also had to change, says Henrik.

From CAPEX to OPEX-based storage resource management

In 2003, Debriefing Software began developing a new, more effective Storage Resource Management solution delivered via the web – Wizards Storage Portal®.

The company knew that for a (partially or fully) cloud-enabled IT Infrastructure to be successful, managed services, automation and multi-tenancy needed to be taken into consideration and ideally in such a way that management could also be outsourced.

Today, Debriefing Software delivers SaaS solutions - based on the newest Cloud Computing standards, which benefit both the customer and their channel partner.

We found a way to help customers keep their return on storage infrastructure optimized, to reduce costs – and wherever possible to move from a CAPEX-based model to an OPEX-based one.Lind says.
