Streamline Storage Provisioning
Streamline storage provisioning by providing vSphere administrators the ability to overcome upfront storage provisioning challenges, such as capacity planning, differentiated service levels, and managing capacity headroom. VMware Profile-Driven Storage lets vSphere administrators meet the demands of growing business needs by letting them provision datastore at a scale, eliminating the need to provision VMs on a case-by-case basis.
Ensure Application Service Levels Match Available Storage
Matching application service levels to the available storage is difficult when you must manually choose between the different datastores and the different storage tiers. To add to this, the right service level of the application is often not known or changes over its lifecycle. With VMware Profile-Driven Storage, vSphere administrators can ensure application service levels match the available storage and minimize needs for constant monitoring and troubleshooting.
Enhance Application Uptime for Improved Business Continuity
Eliminate application downtime by simplifying and accelerating storage provisioning. Managing storage allocations to support dynamic environments can require extensive coordination between application owners, virtual machine owners and storage administrators, often resulting in downtime for critical applications. Improved agility lets storage administrators do their job without causing interruptions in service and without the need for coordination among multiple groups.
vCenter Server is required for the use of this feature.
