Infortrend’s ESVA solutions compatible with VMware 5.0

With many enterprises now adopting server virtualisation into their data centers it is essential that other components of their IT infrastructure are compatible with their server virtualisation platforms. Fibre Channel (FC)-host systems in the ESVA family, Infortrend’s enterprise product line, are now compatible with VMware vSphere 5.

ESVA systems compatible with VMware vSphere 5 include the ESVA F60 and F70. The ESVA F60 and F70 feature eight 8Gb/s FC host ports, while the F70 also features four 1GbE iSCSI for hybrid FC/iSCSI connectivity that enables cost-effective remote replication and SAN tiering.

Novell ZENworks Full Disk Encryption is a part of the ZENworks 11 platform, but is limited with respect to which devices it can deploy security policies to (effectively a sub-set of all ZENworks 11 the managed devices). This means that it shares a common agent, server and web-based console with all other ZENworks 11 products (ZENworks Configuration Management 11, ZENworks Asset Management 11, ZENworks Patch Management 11). However, the specific capabilities of ZENworks Endpoint Security Management 11 are limited to the managed devices noted here.
