EMC PowerPath/VE automates and optimizes data path pools in virtual environments to ensure business process availability and performance and the ability to scale-out mission-critical applications.
Automate failover and recovery – Remove the threat of application disruptions from adapter and cable failures or user errors. Automate failover to alternate data paths and keep business processes online. Leverage intelligent, dynamic path testing to remove faulty paths and restore repaired paths to service without user intervention and without disrupting applications.
Optimize load balancing – Eliminate I/O bottlenecks in virtual environments with increasingly high consolidation ratios. Assign all devices to all paths and automatically adjust I/O path usage to changes in I/O loads coming from virtual machines. Leverage load-based path testing to ensure the viability of a data path for the workload assigned to it.
Standardize path management – Use PowerPath/VE for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V with PowerPath Multipathing for Linux, Microsoft Windows, and UNIX to standardize on a single offering across evolving physical and virtual environments. Support heterogeneous servers, operating systems, and storage including EMC and qualified nonEMC storage arrays.
