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) 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 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.
Dell EMC storage array products provide the integrations and interfaces to let you deploy and control your storage the way you want – from basic scripting for simple operation through deep integration with automation frameworks to help you on the journey to Infrastructure as Code.
