Simplify Management with vSphere and System Center Integration

Violin VSMP for VMWare vSphere is a plug-in for VMware vCenter that enables end-to-end storage management of Violin All Flash Arrays connected through Fibre Channel in vSphere environments. This plug-in supports provisioning, centralized configuration, monitoring and multi-box management.

With the Violin Windows Flash Array (WFA), storage administration is straight-forward using existing Microsoft tools including System Center and PowerShell scripts, for management of the WFA within the context of larger Microsoft Server infrastructure.


Deploy with Confidence: Violin is VMware, Oracle VM, and Hyper-V Ready

Violin’s customers have the freedom and flexibility to deploy Violin All Flash Arrays with a broad range of virtualization technologies from VMware, Oracle, Microsoft and others.

Violin All Flash Arrays have undergone rigorous certification testing through the VMware Ready™ program and are available through the VMware Solution Exchange. This certification ensures that Violin solutions are fully supported by Violin and VMware.

Violin All Flash Arrays are certified by Oracle for use with Oracle VM, enabling customers that deploy Oracle VM on Violin solutions to benefit from streamlined joint support. This certification currently covers Fibre Channel connectivity for both single path and multipath configurations on Oracle VM for x86.

The Windows Flash Array is Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 certified and features tight integration at the kernel level with Windows Storage Server 2012 R2. This certification ensures that the WFA is fully supported by Violin and Microsoft while the integration delivers outstanding Hyper-V VM density and performance for your virtual server environment.
