Arxscan, old player for new need

Arxscan (, old player in storage infrastructure management, offers an interesting solution that we categorize as a storage resource management (SRM) even if they but claim to provide more than that with a business oriented approach.

The company was founded in 2007 by Mark Fitzsimmons and Michael Bowers and is based in Asbury, New Jersey, with less than ten employees.

Arxscan developed Arxview Datacenter Analytics Engine (DCAE), a standalone software, that is fully hardware agnostic supporting all major product lines including Dell EMC, NetApp, IBM, HPE, Hitachi, Oracle, Pure Storage, Violin Memory, VMware, Brocade and Cisco in various configurations of SAN, NAS, DAS, virtual storage and fibre channel switching.

The solution shows capacity utilization, trending, reporting, analysis, performance, chargeback, storage/device mapping, power use, line-of-business dependencies and network topologies for end-to-end clarity. Arxview doesn't require any agent or in-band devices and can be deployed in less than an hour.

The product is listed on HPE and IBM partners portal and distributed by many resellers, vars and integrators.

It reminds me products such Veritas SANPoint Control or CommandCentral Storage, AppIQ, Onaro SANscreen, Tek-Tools, Highground, Astrum, WQuinn and some others logical and physical SRM. More recent competition seems to be Aptare, EMC Storage Analytics, IBM Spectrum Control Storage Insights or CloudPhysics. I hope to learn more about it soon.
