VM Explorer requires up-to-date Storage System support

Brief description:

The supported Storage Systems in VM Explorer are out of date. Especially the supported 3PAR OS is EOL and basically not used anymore. This is from the VM Explorer 7.0 support matrix.


We need to have support for the following versions at minimum and make sure new versions are added as they become available :
- 3PAR OS support for version 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.3.1
- StoreVirtual OS 12.7
- StoreOnce Catalyst 3.18 and 4.x
- ScaleIO 2.x and 3.x



Storage System integration (Snapshot backup, backup targets) is only useful if VMX supports currently used versions. Without it the feature becomes useless.

Hello Sebastian -

The VMX user guide shows a screenshot of 3PAR version 3.2.2. We will fix the support matrix and add 3.2.2 support.

In addition, we are currently testing 3PAR 3.3.1. Certification is successful, we will list for that version as well.


Status changed to: Delivered

VMX 7.1 is released and adds support for 3PAR 3.3.1

Hi Sheetal,

What are the plans for the other versions mentioned? They are, as of today, even more important than 3PAR OS 3.3.1.
