Re: Ask the Expert about EMC VSPEX: Building your Private Cloud so that you can focus on your business

Hello Gopi,

I've got good news for you!

We can manage servers, VM's, and storage with a single management tool in VSPEX.

This kind of complete or converged management offering is available with diverse solutions (these comprehensive solutions are indeed licensed).

They are:

  • EMC UIM (Unified Infrastructure Management)

  • Cisco UCS Director (formerly known as Cloupia)

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/servers-unified-computing/ucs-director/index.html

  • fluid Operations eCloud Manager

Note: fluidOps is an EMC partner and their solution can be sold via EMC Brokering or engaging directly with fluidOps.

If you are looking for solutions which are "free of charge" then you can consider using the free plug-ins which EMC have created:

For VMware vCenter:

  • VSI / EMC Virtual Storage Integrator plug-in

http://www.emc.com/cloud-virtualization/virtual-storage-integrator.htm

Here EMC offer an integrated point of control to simplify VMware storage management – all within vCenter (the plug-in adds an EMC tab)

For Microsoft System Center

  • ESI / EMC Storage Integrator

http://www.emc.com/data-center-management/storage-integrator-for-windows-suite.htm

Here the integration is in Microsoft's System Center and allows an admin to manage the storage infrastructure from the tool-set used to manage a Microsoft virtual environment.

Regards
