After a beta period, the Dell EqualLogic Host Integration Tools for Linux V1.1 has achieved (some days ago) Early Production Access status and is available for download via the standard Dell EqualLogic download site. Note that Early Production Access software is fully supported for production use.

As a reminder, HIT/Linux includes tools that provide tight integration of EqualLogic PS Series arrays with Linux environments for enhanced protection, performance and simplified configuration and administration of EqualLogic PS Series storage arrays.

HIT/Linux 1.1  feature enhancements over the previous release of HIT/Linux 1.0 include the following:

  • Auto-Snapshot Manager/Linux Edition (ASM/LE) for Linux filesystem
  • Expanded Linux distribution support including Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS and SUSE Enterprise Linux Server (SLES)
  • Enhanced Host Performance and Configuration Tuning Suite (EQLTUNE)
  • Enhanced installation procedure

Officially the supported OS are: 32- and 64-bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5.7, 6.1 and 6.2, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11 SP1, and CentOS 5.7 (but works also on other Linux distro).
