The Dell Compellent vSphere Plug-In currently under development will enable data center administrators to manage many aspects of Dell Compellent Fluid Data storage directly through the VMware vSphere client. This demo video shows how to leverage the integration to provision and map storage volumes for VMFS datastores, create storage profiles for automated tiering and continuous snapshots, and recover datastores to virtually any point in time - all through a single interface.
