Storage For Virtualized Environments Spotlighted At VMware Partner Exchange


Dell introduced new EqualLogic Host Integration Tools for VMware, an expanded suite of EqualLogic data protection and management features integrated into vCenter. The package adds such new capabilities as simplified Datastore provisioning and management with the EqualLogic Datastore Manager, which also monitors storage usage from vCenter. It also includes the EqualLogic Virtual Desktop Deployment Tool, a VMware View-aware desktop provisioning wizard which deploys virtual desktop pools using array-based thin clones; and the use of EqualLogic Auto-Snapshot Manager/VMware Edition from the vCenter console for multi-tiered data protection in vSphere environments with hypervisor-consistent snapshots, replication, cloning, and recovery of virtual machines.
