Storage Manager - What we are working on...

We are currently working on STM version 5.7 and beyond (in parallel).  Some of the items we hope to deliver:

  • Storage Manager Server and Agent health and status overview
  • Product stability improvements
  • Preservation of Agent and Server settings on upgrade
  • Improved graphs
  • User-defined LUN Grouping
  • EMC PowerPath Support
  • Better "Storage Group" Dashboards

  • I would like to suggest an open API so that other individuals can interface to other storage systems using various standards (if they are available) or using the storage vendors own integartion tools (or even scripts if absolutely necessary). I work with 10 other storage vendors NOT on the list and it is too much to ask for them all to be included. Just monitoring port IO on the SAn is not good enough.

    In addtion, backup storage vendors which include de-duplication is an ever important part of the puzzle today - vendors such as EMC DataDomain, Quantum DXi and ExaGrid should be looked into.
