Brocade: Enhancing Hyper-V Support For SANs

Brocade, along with partners Microsoft and Hitachi Data Systems, used TechEd to unveil a joint solution architecture that leverages the Storage Management Initiative (SMI-S) standard to support Hyper-V virtual machines with increased simplification and automation across SANs.

The joint support for SMI-S standards provides a single management interface for the entire virtualization environment that lets users manage hosts, virtual machines, networking, storage and fabric from a single pane of glass to cut deployment times for virtual machines and services, Brocade said.
