VitalEdge vCenter Plug-in for Storage Management

A Centralised Management Console

What is VitalEdge vCenter Plug-in for VMware ?

VitalEdge vCenter Plug-in for VMware is the Centralized Management Console for Storage Management for the complex virtualized VMware environment. VitalEdge provides the deep integration with your storage system and ESXi through the vCenter.

vCenter Plugin Key-Features

Datastore Provisioning

VMware Administrator can provision NAS or SAN storage volume using VitalEdge vCenter Plug-in for VMware at the storage side and seamlessly attach as datastore to one or more ESXi, it is supporting to set generic and array related configurations like Disk size, Block Size IOs, Throughput, Latency etc.

Storage Performance and Health Monitoring

VMware Administrator can monitor the volume health and performance right from the vCenter web client, Admins can monitor storage volume related parameters like Disk read write IOPS, throughput, latency, etc.

Storage Summary

VMware Administrator can see the summary of the storage volume like Volume name in Storage array, Volume disk used and available size, Creation date and access time, number of VMs available on the datastore, storage details of snapshots and children etc. directly in vCenter web client summary portlets.

Snapshot Management

VitalEdge vCenter Web Client Plug-in provides the capability for the Administrators to create the snapshot of the storage volume in the storage controller, VMware Admin can create one time snapshot or can schedule to take once in a minute / hour / day / month. Administrators are allowed to start / stop the schedule any time.

Recover and Clone from Snapshot

VMware Administrator can restore the data in a datastore to the state captured at the moment of a snapshot creation. Admin can recover the lost data with single click from vCenter Web Client Plug-in by using revert snapshot. VMware Administrator can clone a datastore from a snapshot and attach to single / multiple ESX. Admin can clone the Snapshot from VitalEdge vCenter web client in one call.

VMware Virtual Center

VitalEdge vCenter Plug-in for VMware provides the deep integration with your storage array and VMware vCenter and ESX using vCenter APIs.

    What is a Snapshot? “Snapshot” is a most used term in the storage industry to explain the capturing a volume state at a certain point in time. Most snapshots are firstly capacity-neutral. The blocks of a volume are naturally set to read only and updates to those blocks are written to a separate disk area. How these changes are tracked impacts the performance of the volume and the quantity of snapshots that can be taken
