Simplify physical and virtual resource management with MD Storage Manager and PowerVault VMware vCenter™ Plug-In 5.0.

Powervault MD36x0i Series - MD Storage Manager  Powervault MD36x0i Series - VMware vCenter Plug-in 5.0

MD Storage Manager

With wizard-based array configuration and single-pane management, MD Storage Manager can alert you to problems and launch its recovery guru to automatically help troubleshoot and resolve issues. 

VMware vCenter Plug-In 5.0

Monitor, manage, provision and optimize storage for performance and availability across your virtual infrastructure. You can also implement Storage Replication Adapters (SRA) to simplify management of disaster recovery with centralized recovery plans and VASA to create profiles that map to volumes and virtual machines. 

Upgrade with the Premium Feature Key bundles that meet your priorities.

Powervault MD Series - Data Protection

Data Protection:

Ensure your data is protected with Snapshot, VDC and Remote Replication.
Powervault MD Series - High Performance

High Performance:

Data is increasing at an alarming rate, but performance should not be impacted. This bundle includes the High Performance tier, SSD cache and the additional drive capacity license.

Speed recovery with Dynamic Disk Pools.

Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP) protect data by dynamically distributing data across pools of drives. In the event of a drive failure, DDP will identify the critical data and dynamically rebalance the data so the array can return to an optimal state faster than it would in the typical RAID environment. DDP can now support up to 20 disk pools and up to 120 SSDs.
