Foglight Evolve Operate

Unlock hidden resources and reallocate computing power where needed

Foglight Evolve Operate

Reclaim under-used resources like compute, storage and licensing

Automatically identify and reclaim under-used resources, know the impact of infrastructure changes before you make them, and accurately determine the IT resources you need now and in the future. Foglight® Evolve Operate allows you to unlock and reallocate existing computing power and resources to improve performance and avoid future costs – and make your budget go further because you’ll only be paying for what you need.

The result? You’ll have greater flexibility in the decisions you make regarding the hardware and software you need now and in the future, without the overestimating, over buying, or over allocating.

Join the evolution in advanced IT operation with Foglight Evolve Operate.

Capabilities

Optimize performance, maintain budget

Optimize performance, maintain budget

No IT environment is without its share of zombie VMs, excess storage or other under-utilized resources that can be re-allocated, re-claimed or retired. But with Foglight Evolve Operate, automatically identifying and reclaiming such under-used resources is easy with its graphical dashboard. Having this information at your fingertips will ensure you can optimize the performance of IT systems immediately – before you spend a single cent on new hardware!
Budget more effectively

Budget more effectively

Sometimes it’s hard enough to know what IT resources you’ll need for the upcoming two quarters, much less the entire year. And that’s a real problem when it comes to requesting and allocating your budget. Foglight Evolve Operate simplifies this greatly by providing you with real-world, real-time data points and trends, presented in an easy-to-share graphic interface. This data ensures you’ll have a much clearer idea of what to budget for, resulting in more effective planning.
Avoid surprises after upgrades

Avoid surprises after upgrades

Updating your most business-critical applications shouldn’t have to be a worrisome, disruptive process. But we all know that in real life, updates and patches typically lead to some unwelcome surprises. With Foglight Evolve Operate, however, you can accurately predict the impact of future infrastructure changes before you make them. This makes planning for future upgrades and expansions more predictable, so you’ll avoid the risk of unexpected performance issues or downtime.
