As written in a previous post, with Microsoft System Center VMM 2012 is possible manage some (supported) storage array using a SMI-S provider.
In the Dell storage portfoglio, the only solution that (one month ago) had the SMS-S support was the PowerVault MD3xxx series, and althoug not mentioned by Microsoft, was possible include them in the System Center fabric (as written in specific post).
With the new SP1, VMM supports the same storage arrays that were supported in VMM 2012, plus the SMP provider. For more info:
- SCVMM 2012 Storage and Load Balancer Provider
- VMM 2012 SP1 storage providers supports : new SMP storage provider
In this way is now possible handle, with System Center 2012, the main Dell’s storage families:
