DataCore Software, a storage virtualization software provider, has introduced the SANsymphony-V Monitoring Pack for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, enabling customers to monitor and manage the diverse storage assets virtualized by SANsymphony-V alongside other facets of their data center from System Center.

The DataCore SANsymphony-V storage hypervisor enhances the value of diverse storage resources by unifying advanced services, such as provisioning, auto-tiering, replication, and performance acceleration, through a common storage virtualization layer. The SANsymphony-V Monitoring Pack brings constant visibility into the health, performance, and availability of these virtualized storage resources in System Center.

The combined solution encompasses both on-premise and cloud-based, off-premise components, including redundant high-availability elements and those in remote disaster recovery sites. Information appears on a “single pane of glass” alongside other facets of the data center, simplifying end-to-end service management of diverse storage environments.
