Expand VMware SPBM and VM-Aware Storage Across Your Existing Infrastructure

Expand VMware SPBM and VM-Aware Storage Across Your Existing Infrastructure

Posted in

The DataSphere data orchestration platform offers numerous benefits to virtualized environments. As VMworld 2016 U.S. gets underway, let’s take a closer look at how DataSphere delivers a VMware-certified universal VVols provider for VMware Virtual Volumes and extends VMware Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) across your existing storage.

VMware Certified Universal VASA Support - Add VVols to ALL Your Storage

The Primary Data DataSphere platform leverages vSphere Storage APIs for Storage Awareness to deliver a VMware-certified universal VASA provider, enabling both existing and new storage resources – from server-side flash to NAS and cloud storage – to be presented as a single, easy-to-manage, VMware-certified Virtual Volume datastore. Regardless of storage vendor management, protocol type, or the number of systems added to the DataSphere, DataSphere allows a single VVol to be presented to VMware vSphere, overcoming storage silos and greatly simplifying manageability.

Extend VMware Policy-Based Management Across Different Storage

The DataSphere data orchestration platform complements the Storage-Policy Based Management (SPBM) and VM-aware storage features of VMware vSphere® 6 by enabling intelligent placement of data across enterprises’ entire pool of existing and new storage resources through data virtualization. This breakthrough data mobility across file, block and object storage types, coupled with policy-driven automation, reduces storage overprovisioning costs by up to 50 percent while seamlessly integrating into VMware vCenter.

DataSphere enhances VMware Storage Policy Based Management, which provides dynamic control of storage service levels for individual Virtual Machines (VMs) and VMDKs. Objective-based policies automate provisioning at scale and enable dynamic control of storage service levels for individual Virtual Machines (VMs). Integrated Data Analytics, combined with Smart Data Mobility, eliminates the need to excessively overprovision storage, while ensuring that VMs meet required Service Levels.

Some of the powerful management benefits DataSphere provides include the abilities to:

·  Expand the Storage-Policy Based Management (SPBM) and VM-aware storage features of VMware vSphere 6 across heterogeneous storage environments

·  Serves as a certified universal VASA provider for VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols), enabling both existing and new storage resources to be fully Virtual Volume capable

·  Enhance VMware SPBM to include more granular options for data placement and movement, and automating alignment of the right data to the right storage at the right time
