Managing Software-Defined storage for your virtualized infrastructure just got a whole lot easier.

Nexenta is proud to announce our first vCenter Web Client plugin to support the NexentaStor platform. The NexentaStor vCenter Web Client Plugin is a plug-in for vSphere 5.5 and NexentaStor 4.0.3 that provides integrated management of NexentaStor storage systems within vCenter. The plug-in will allow the vCenter administrator to automatically configure NexentaStor nodes via vCenter.

VMware administrators can provision, connect, and delete storage from NexentaStor to the ESX host, and view the datastores within vCenter.
