EMC adds VMware support to Controlcentre

EMC is set to end a two-year wait by its users for a new version of its flagship Controlcentre storage resource management (SRM) software.

Version 6.0 of the software includes support for EMC's virtual server technology and more flexible reporting and customisation capabilities, the company says.

Some users have said the lack of support for EMC's VMware virtualisation tool was a glaring problem with earlier versions of Controlcentre.

EMC says it expects the new VMware support will allow organisations to boost capacity planning by more closely aligning physical and virtual environments through SRM visualisation, provisioning and mapping.

Pricing for Version 6.0 of Controlcentre starts at US$39,000 for a 10TB configuration, the company says.

Available at the end of June, the updated Controlcentre can help administrators discover individual VMware guests, such as the version of an operating system, IP address and guest name, EMC says. The system can then offer reports about virtual disk file and raw storage device capacity mapped to each virtual machine guest.

Controlcentre includes 12 out-of-box built-in reports, and it can take action on files by creating policies to make changes and clean up storage environments by removing duplicate files.

In addition, the upgraded SRM software expands active management capabilities for Hitachi storage arrays and features support for non-EMC storage systems based on the Storage Management Initiative Specification 1.1 standard.
