Intelli-SMART is based on S.M.A.R.T., or Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, to continuously monitor hard drives and RAID Arrays performances. This specification was adopted by all major hard disk drive manufacturers to notify users of failures. The utility is fully compliant with the industry standard S.M.A.R.T. Specification as defined by the Small Form Factor Committee consisting of most major disk drive manufacturers, OEMs and system integrators. Easily predict 7 out of 10 disk drive failures anywhere in the world. Remote systems, as well as internal network systems, are reliably monitored from a central location. The robust reporting engine will locally alert the user, send an e-mail, write to the event log or use an SNMP hook. The consumer will be warned immediately with pop-ups, e-mails and audio-visual alerts. Forewarning allows drives to be replaced before a problem occurs. With this application, users and administrators alike are alerted prior to disk drive failures. This program brings storage fault tolerance to every desktop or server in the enterprise. Pop-up notifications of S.M.A.R.T. Errors, along with local alerting, are complemented by a fully configurable remote alerting engine. The system even allows for notifications of detected S.M.A.R.T. errors with an e-mail containing the Machine Name, Drive Number, Model and Serial Number for easy identification.
