SANsymphony™-V Plug-in for VMware vCenter
Control and schedule key SANsymphony-V storage virtualization services directly from the vCenter Server management platform.
The VMware vSphere Plug-in for SANsymphony-V provides a rich set of storage management capabilities. From the plug-in, vCenter administrators can fulfill the dynamic storage needs of their vSphere/ESX clusters, hosts and virtual machines without having to become a storage expert or having to leave their familiar central console. The plug-in:
- Enables an end-to-end view for VMware to storage from a virtual machine, host or virtual disk perspective; central monitoring and management of storage resources
- Rapidly provisioning virtual disks to VMware vSphere®/ESX® hosts
- Creating and restoring snapshots of data stores where VMs are housed
- Scheduling tasks and snapshots to coordinate workflows between vSphere and SANsymphony-V servers
"The new DataCore Storage Hypervisor Plug-in for VMware vCenter Server combines two industry-leading management solutions to offer customers the best of both worlds through a single view infrastructure management," said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "Customers can better manage and realize the full benefits of their desktop, server and storage resources in a VMware virtual environment."
