Sun Remote Monitoring
With the ISC-CHS™ Call Home Service, we do the monitoring so you don’t have to. Proprietary to ISC Group, the ISC-CHS software tool allows Sun remote monitoring and maintenance, and is available for several models of Sun disk arrays:
- Sun StorEdge 9910 Hard Drive Array
- Sun StorEdge 9960 Hard Drive Array
- Sun StorEdge 9970 Hard Drive Array
- Sun StorEdge 9980 Hard Drive Array
- Sun StorageTek 9985V Disk Array
- Sun StorageTek 9990V Disk Array
The ISC-CHS tool allows Sun remote monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and only requires an internet connection or a dedicated phone line to function. ISC support engineers can install it remotely (preferred method) or a local field engineer can download it from a FTP link or CD ROM into the unit’s integrated laptop or internal server (SVP) for the enterprise units, or a network PC for the mid-range and modular units. This will allow the Sun hard drive array to connect with the ISC remote monitoring dedicated servers.
The system is proactive and will notify the ISC technical team every time there is a hardware failure by sending a package message to the ISC analyzer servers. These servers will decode the message and forward the error log to an e-mail server that will send an e-mail or text message to the ISC help desk. At that moment a service ticket is open. If the end user allows it, ISC support technicians will first access the unit remotely to troubleshoot and fix the problem if possible. If the problem requires a field engineer on site, ISC will dispatch one with the correct parts to be replaced. By the time the end user finds out there is a problem with the disk array, ISC will already be working on fixing it.
ISC-CHS also includes a heartbeat feature, which checks the connection between the the data storage systems and the ISC servers on a daily basis. If for any reason connection is lost, ISC will receive an alert and inform the end user right away.
