Any minor bottlenecks may limit overall effectiveness of the system. It is impossible to resolve system failures prior to defining areas of improvement and required upgrades. SAN HealthCheck professional services package provide corresponding tools that enable to identify storage infrastructure problems in advance and define reasonable direction of its development in medium-term perspective.
Pilot projects differ greatly from the Jumpstart package services and other complete De Novo products. Pilot projects are implemented in case if the customer has already chosen a specific vendor technology, acquires deep knowledge on the applied technology and wants to confirm the applicability of corresponding technology for specific business tasks resolution.

The project supports a specific service to defined business user’s profile via customized set of tests. The tests results are customized to the common and virtual workplace after complex implementation. Particularly User Acceptance Testing provides an objective technology applicability assessment for the specific customer operating conditions. According to the corresponding test results there could me made a decision on complex project implementation that would cover customer workplaces complete infrastructure.
Project implementation time frame is defined according to the following main parameters: number of workplace to be virtualized, user characteristics, number of applications to be virtualized. Depending corresponding parameters value the duration of the pilot project implementation can vary from two weeks to six weeks.
