June 14 2012 - Viby J, Denmark - Debriefing Software, experts in cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) for IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), Storwize and SVC solutions, today launched WSP Lite, a free basic version of the Wizards Storage Portal that can be used for an unlimited time period by one user on up to two servers. Like the full enterprise version of Wizards Storage Portal, WSP Lite provides several features that reduce and optimise storage and backup costs for mid-sized and large IT infrastructures. It can be used in conjunction with WSP Mobile, a free app that allows you to monitor your chosen servers from your iPhone or iPad.
Jesper Matthiesen, CTO of Red Herring Europe 2012 award winner Debriefing Software, said, "We have designed WSP Lite to allow our customers to explore the monitoring agents and widgets that would best suit their needs to manage their TSM installations more effectively. Pre-configuring many of the key reports - such as client activity scatter and transfer charts, and occupancy history graphs - helps our customers simplify much of the routine monitoring and analysis of backup and storage management."
WSP Lite installs in less than 15 minutes and has many of the same features as the full version of Wizards Storage Portal, including flash-based charts documenting storage growth, along with graphs and reports that continually monitor the backup system using current and historical data.

Paul Stroem, Global Sales Director of Debriefing Software, said, "As well as being a useful application for customers to monitor and analyse a limited number of servers, WSP Lite is also an ideal tool for our reseller partners to set up extended trials with customers who want to review Wizards Storage Portal over the course of several months. WSP Lite makes it easy for customers to quantify the return on investment of implementing this kind of storage across their whole infrastructure."
Key features of WSP Lite include:
- User-friendly dashboard with drag and drop widgets and collaboration tools.
- Monitor your backup system 24/7 with current and historical data.
- Track storage growth by viewing flash-based historic data presented in charts and tables.
- Use in conjunction with WSP Mobile, a free app that monitors your chosen servers from your iPhone or iPad.

The key differences between WSP Lite and the full enterprise version of WSP are:
- WSP Lite can be used by one user and on up to two servers while the enterprise version can be used by an unlimited number of people on an unlimited number of servers.
- The number of monitoring agents and configurable widgets is limited to five of each with WSP Lite, rather than being unlimited as in the full version.
- Real-time data is collected every hour with WSP Lite instead of every 10 minutes as in the full version.
- Historical data is limited to 14 days with WSP Lite, as opposed to two years with the full enterprise version.

About Wizards Storage Portal
Wizards Storage Portal provides instant and detailed insights to the customer site both for historical and real-time server performance analysis. A cloud-based Storage Resource Management solution that is a non-intrusive application combined with an intuitive bidirectional internet portal, Wizards Storage Portal permits both the customer and their IT partner to have secure access to the same reporting information.
Unlike other storage resource management solutions there is no need for incremental investment in hardware or software and can be implemented either immediately or gradually.
Working with the leading Storage Resource Management technologies - IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM), IBM San Volume Controller (SVC) and Brocade SAN switches - Wizards Storage Portal produces instant graphic reports from easily customizable high-level status pages to back up performance data at single node level and can even be monitored from an iPhone or iPad.
Wizards Storage Portal is available in three versions.
The enterprise version is fully featured, and can be used on an unlimited number of servers for an unlimited number of users with historical date captured for up to two years.
The 30-day free trial version is similar to the enterprise version but captures historical data for up to 30 days. It provides an excellent platform for customers and reseller partners to test Wizards Storage Portal on full installations in TSM, Storwize, SCV and Brocade environments.
WSP Lite is a free basic version or Wizards Storage Portal that has limited functionality and captures historical data for up to 14 days. It is limited to one user and two servers.
