Hi Dinesh,

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. 

Product description

 

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.

Regards

Conor

Conor,

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
