A leading American health insurance company was experiencing data inadequacy using native monitoring tools to monitor and optimize its hyperconverged infrastructure platform. By integrating Galileo’s advanced analytics and reporting capabilities, the company gained detailed insights into CPU, memory, and storage usage, empowering informed decision-making and enhancing operational efficiency.

The Challenge: Optimizing Hyperconverged Infrastructure Performance

A health insurance company in upstate New York, serving over 1.5 million customers, made a strategic decision to adopt a hyperconverged infrastructure platform at the core of its operations. Despite implementing this advanced system, the company encountered a significant challenge in effectively managing performance and capacity.

The data provided by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) was incomplete and lacked the necessary detail for making well-informed decisions. Specifically, the insurer needed a way to individually assess CPU, memory, and storage with respect to their redundancy factors.  Unfortunately, relying solely on the OEM-provided data did not allow for this level of analysis.

The data provided by Galileo is far superior
to what we are getting from the manufacturer’s application.
They are often reporting we are out of capacity, but Galileo consistently
proves otherwise. With Galileo, I can see accurate measurements and
trends to keep my hardware costs down.
