IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Centre
IBM Tivoli® Storage Productivity Centre is a storage infrastructure management software solution designed to help you improve time to value, as well as reduce the complexity of managing your storage environment by simplifying, centralising, automating and optimising storage tasks associated with storage systems, storage networks, replication services and capacity management.
This integrated solution helps you improve your storage total cost of ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI) by combining the management of storage assets, capacity, performance and operations—traditionally offered by separate storage resource management (SRM), device or SAN management applications—into a single console.
The Tivoli Storage Productivity Centre family of products includes:
Details about integration and interoperability, including device support, database support, server hardware requirements and OS platform support can be found on the “Install/use” tab in the Product support section.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Centre can help you manage capacity, performance and operations of storage systems and networks. It helps perform device configuration and manage multiple devices, and can tune and proactively manage the performance of storage devices on the SAN while managing, monitoring and controlling your SAN fabric.
