Strobe and ThruPut Manager make batch management automagical while you continue to give your company the competitive edge by making online performance hum.

Have you been burned by capacity controls in the past? Let ThruPut Manager extinguish the flame with automated capacity management that saves you time and money.
ThruPut Manager’s Automated Capacity Management lets you reduce your R4HA and the resulting MLC costs with – or without – soft caps, and with considerably lower risk.
