Sun Microsystems has upgraded its business analytics software for storage with new reporting enhancements, it said Monday.

Sun’s StorageTek Business Analytics software is based on technology gained last year from the company’s US$4.1 billion acquisition of Storage Technology. StorageTek had previously acquired the software, formerly called Storability Global Storage Manager, from its purchase of Storability Software in 2004. Sun is still in the process of rebranding all of its storage products under the StorageTek moniker as well as integrating both the staff and technologies it gained through the acquisition.

Version 5.0 of StorageTek Business Analytics adds new NAS reporting capabilities to notify administrators when quotas are reaching capacity, as well as new reporting functionality to identify and repair orphan storage. The latest version also adds support for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Sun Solaris 10 operating systems, QLogic switches, and IBM and ADIC tape libraries.
