End-to-End Storage Management for Virtualization and Cloud Architectures
Coraid EtherDrive® SAN Manager (ESM) leverages the scale out architecture of EtherDrive and the single namespace of CorOS™ to monitor and configure up to petabytes of storage as a pooled resource. Coraid’s groundbreaking Ethernet SAN platform eliminates multiple layers of traditional SAN complexity, and ESM enables powerful automation in virtualized and cloud computing environments.
Visibility and Control
EtherDrive SAN Manager provides the visibility and operational controls to provision, configure, monitor, and troubleshoot storage resources. The inventory system provides insight on every component from shelf to drive attached to the network and enables advanced filtering to identify and act on exactly the resource you need.
Storage Automation with Programmatic Controls
EtherDrive SAN Manager presents a native REST API enabling programmable control of the storage infrastructure. Administrators can deliver storage as an on-demand utility for a wide variety of application
environments and integrate with a broad
array of management tools to orchestrate
their storage environment.
In Context Virtual Machine Management
EtherDrive SAN Manager includes the Coraid ESM for vCenter Plug-in, which
provides VMware administrators visibility and control over virtual machine storage, including
virtual machine-to-storage mappings and the coordination and scheduling of array snapshots.
Microsoft Hyper-V Snapshot Coordination
EtherDrive SAN Manager also includes a Microsoft VSS hardware provider that communicates
with Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft Hyper-V to quiesce applications before storage
snapshots, ensuring data consistency.
