How is Prosphere better than Hitachi Capacity Reporter with Fabric and Virtualization Viewer plugins ?
Contact your local EMC account / PreSales team and I am sure they will provide information to you on the above question in relation to both Products
What are Features of Prosphere ?
Review the various documents/whitepapers available on powerlink or the Product page https://support.emc.com/products/15995 for features and benifit's of ProSphere.
EMC ProSphere is an integrated family of components that provide you with a coherent
approach to managing your storage environment and simplifying many of your common
storage management tasks.
ProSphere is designed for use in heterogeneous environments containing multi-vendor
networks, hosts, and storage devices. The information this system collects and the
functionality it manages can reside on technologically disparate devices in geographically
diverse locations. However, ProSphere moves a step beyond storage management and
provides a platform for the cross domain correlation of device information and resource
topology, allowing you to obtain a broader view of your storage environment as well as
your enterprise data center.
New features and changes to the product are documented in the release notes.
Thanks For Respose. But i have started a chat with EMC . They told that only EMC Storage array can be monitored using Prosphere. While Hitachi Cap Reporter allows us to monitor storage array from any vendor.
We are planing for prosphere but i want to know that does prosphere allows us to monitor EMC VMAX/Hitachi VSP/HP 3Par/HP Xp12K boxes.. Because i would prefer to use a single tool for all these storages
