As the Gold award winner in the storage management tool category, vFoglight Storage 2.0 pinpoints where performance issues exist in data storage. It shows the data path from the application to the disk, allowing server and storage admins to identify what may be causing storage performance issues that originate from adjacent infrastructure areas. Version 2.0 of Dell vFoglight Storage lets admins look "upstream" from an affected storage component to see how much I/O load is generated by each virtual machine.
