      Ansible Modules

      Ansible delivers a powerful, yet simple automation engine that ends manual, time-consuming repetitive tasks and frees up IT teams for more strategic work. Dell EMC is developing a collection of storage modules to automate storage administration, provisioning, and consumption for a growing list of storage platforms. These modules enable the operations teams to rapidly provision storage infrastructure with accuracy to respond to the fast-paced needs of application developers.

      VMware vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) Plugins

      VMware vRealize Orchestrator (vRO) is an IT process automation tool that allows automated management and operational tasks across both VMware and third-party applications. Dell EMC Storage Workflows for vRO augment the capabilities of VMware’s vRealize Orchestrator solution by providing access to storage array-specific management workflows, such as storage administration, provisioning and consumption.

      Container Storage Interface (CSI) Drivers

      Container technologies tremendously increase speed, efficiency and portability of application deployment. However, stateful applications require persistent storage which has a lifecycle that is independent of the pod that uses it. Container Storage Interface is a standardized API for container orchestration platforms (COs) to talk to storage plugins for persistent storage. Dell EMC is building CSI plugins for a growing list of storage platforms to enable new and legacy applications to be deployed in a containerized environment.
