This week I’m out at EMC World 2012, and wanted to let you know of an exciting new announcement that EMC has made. EMC announced this week that they will provide Advanced Storage Analytics for their VNX storage arrays using VMware’s vCenter Operations product. The tighter integration between storage hardware and the vCenter Operations monitoring suite will mean EMC storage customers will get the best in breed analytics and monitoring software delivered by VMware Operations in order to provide them with the in depth storage statistics and operations monitoring necessary for storage administrators to optimize storage performance and validate that storage level SLAs are met. The new product, The VNX Storage Analytics Suite and VNX Connector for VMware vCenter Operations, announced this week will be generally available later this year.
