LAS VEGAS, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ — VMWORLD BOOTH #1134 — Virtual View, a storage and server administration solution launched by Xiotech in May, today was selected as a finalist for the "Best of VMworld" Award in the Storage Software for Virtualization category. Through the end of VMworld, Virtual View is available for demonstration at booth #1134.
Virtual View, designed for users of Xiotech's Emprise(TM) 7000 and Magnitude 3D(R) 4000 storage systems, enables administrators to manage storage in their virtual server environments from a single interface, dramatically simplifying storage monitoring, management and provisioning tasks. Users can have a global view of the three storage layers (array, physical server and virtual machine) from a single console and then automate configuration across all layers. As a result, storage management becomes faster and easier with less risk of misconfigurations.
"We are very pleased that Virtual View was chosen to receive this award," said Eric Lomascolo, Director of Product Management at Xiotech. "This award recognizes the substantial, everyday impact that Virtual View has on a virtual server environment, an IT system and an organization as a whole through increased operational efficiency, reduced costs and time savings."
The Virtual View plug-in expands the simplicity of Xiotech's ICON Manager user interface, enabling administrators to explore and map all physical server hosts, storage relationships and properties in a unified view. As a result of Virtual View's tight integration with virtual server APIs, it can automate the creation and expansion of virtual disks, logical unit number (LUN) assignments and datastore creation for physical server systems and clusters — performing all in as few as three simple steps. Virtual View also helps reduce operational errors and ensures storage is accessible by automatically managing interdependencies across the three different storage layers.
