Back in April, EMC made an announcement about EMC PowerPath/VE for VMware vSphere (ESX4).
PowerPath/VE customers can now take advantage of these additional unique benefits:
Standardization: PowerPath is the only independent solution to unify management of major server, operating system and virtual platforms across physical and virtual environments—including VMware vSphere and Microsoft Server 2008 Hyper-V environments—thereby eliminating the need to monitor and rebalance the dynamic environment. Rather than deploy and support a variety of point products, PowerPath/VE standardizes multipathing across the entire environment.
Transparent Protection: Through unique integration with VMware vSphere 4’s vStorage technology, customers can now leverage PowerPath/VE in VMware vSphere environments to automatically detect and reroute I/O in the case of a path failure to ensure applications stay online. This delivers a significant leap in availability and performance to every virtual machine in the virtual datacenter – with a smaller footprint and simple deployment model.
Improved Performance: PowerPath/VE utilizes all available I/O paths to automatically balance high throughput demands, resulting in increased performance with multiple data streams per host. PowerPath/VE dynamically adapts to meet the sustained I/O performance required in EMC Symmetrix® V-Max™ environments with clustered ESX Server hosts and thousands of virtual machines.
EMC Global Services: Offering end-to-end virtualization services capabilities to help with deploying PowerPath/VE, EMC Global Services helps customers accelerate virtualization adoption with consulting, deployment, managed services and education.
One of the coolest thing here, you can install, run EMC PowerPath/VE and connect to a non-EMC storage!
