EMC MANAGEMENT INTEGRATION FOR MICROSOFT PRIVATE CLOUD

EMC Symmetrix VMAX, EMC VNX, EMC Storage Integrator (ESI) for Windows Suite, Microsoft System Center 2012

  • Application to infrastructure management and monitoring
  • Optimized storage for elastic infrastructures
  • Automated storage provisioning

 

Solution overview

This solution showcases a mixed Microsoft application workload (Microsoft Exchange 2010, Microsoft SharePoint 2010, and Microsoft SQL Server 2012), hosted on Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and VMware ESXi™ 5.0.1 clusters, to provide a multi-hypervisor environment found in today’s corporate infrastructures. This environment is managed by Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1.

 

Key results

The key findings of this solution are as follows:

  • The ESI Management Packs for System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) provide the ability for SCOM 2012 SP1 to monitor the health and performance of EMC storage systems
  • The EMC SMI-S Provider allows System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2012 SP1 to easily manage and provision EMC storage
  • ESI PowerShell allows automated provisioning and allocation of EMC storage with System Center Orchestrator (SCO) 2012 SP1
  • SCVMM 2012 SP1 provides simplified and centralized management of both ESXi and Hyper-V virtualization platforms
  • The new VNX feature of automatic in-tier rebalance, following storage-pool tier expansion, balances disk utilization
  • Fully Automated Storage Tiering for Virtual Pools (FAST VP) policies allow co-location of multiple workloads (such as SQL Server and SharePoint) in the same storage pool, which simplifies storage design without compromising performance
