NetApp® Virtual Storage Console for VMware® vSphere™ provides integrated, comprehensive, end-to-end virtual storage management for your VMware infrastructure, including discovery, health monitoring, capacity management, provisioning, cloning, backup, restore, and disaster recovery. It integrates manageability for NetApp Flash Accel™ host-based caching solutions.
Virtual Storage Console lets your VMware administrators access and execute all these capabilities from VMware vCenter™. Using its built-in role-based access control (RBAC), you can control who does what, enhancing server and storage efficiencies without affecting your storage administrators’ policies. All VSC for vSphere capabilities are supported on clustered Data ONTAP® software or Data ONTAP in 7-Mode.
Without the right tools for effective data storage management, your VM administrators have little visibility into the storage underlying your virtual infrastructure, making it challenging to optimize IT efficiency and respond to fast-changing business requirements. NetApp Virtual Storage Console solves this challenge and lets your VM administrators focus on their core responsibilities.
