Emulex Simplifies Connectivity Management in VMware Environments
Today at VMworld 2010, Emulex Corporation announced the introduction of its new OneCommand™ Manager plug-in (OCM-VCp) for VMware vCenter™ Server. The Emulex OneCommand plug-in simplifies management of Emulex LightPulse® Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) and OneConnect™ Universal Converged Network Adapters (UCNAs) within VMware vSphere™ environments by enabling administrators to centrally monitor, manage, update and run diagnostics on Emulex adapters, directly from VMware vCenter Server.

"In our recent work with IT managers, they've said that the deployment of 10Gb Ethernet is tied directly to their deployment of server virtualization and our plug-in for VMware vCenter Server will help accelerate deployment and lower management costs for our customers," said Steve Daheb, chief marketing officer and senior vice president of business development, Emulex. "Emulex's OneCommand Manager plug-in for VMware vCenter Server offers a unique set of tools and monitoring capabilities to simplify management and provide advanced diagnostics, which ultimately help improve performance and availability, enabling more efficient use of the virtual infrastructure."

The Emulex OneCommand Manager plug-in for VMware vCenter Server also offers asset information, such as adapter and driver firmware versions and driver configuration settings, directly within VMware vSphere environments. This allows IT administrators to natively update adapter firmware and driver settings.

"The simplification of management tasks is imperative to reducing operational expenses and helps enable greater resource utilization within the data center," said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "Emulex's OneCommand Manager plug-in for VMware vCenter Server provides customers a simplified management solution that helps customers provide IT as a Service."

Emulex's new OneCommand Manager plug-in for VMware vCenter Server will be demonstrated in Emulex's booth #736 this week at VMworld 2010 in San Francisco, California.
