Operational Excellence Through Effective Array
Functional storage systems require more than top quality hardware.
With Promise Technology's extensive experience in delivering RAID
solutions, we understand the needs of storage system users and we
have complemented our products with our web-based Promise Array
Management (WebPAM) software, an easy-to-use, feature-rich solution
for managing all of your Promise RAID arrays locally or remotely.
With this easy to use, graphical array configuration and monitoring
tool you can monitor drive configuration, create, expand, convert,
or delete disk arrays, monitor enclosure status, and provide online
event logging and notification and much more.
• Simplify array management: Configure, manage and monitor all
Promise storage solutions through a single, host-independent
web-based management console.
• Reduce total cost of ownership for array storage:
Centralize network wide storage and array management with
single-point software management. Manage more systems with fewer
• Higher availability with remote management:
Distribute email alerts or pop-up windows based on preselected event
types or error. Array performance can be optimized by scheduling
array rebuild or synchronization in off-peak hours.
