Mixed storage environment


I have an environment that has ESX hosts with Primary storage on Lefthand storage being backed up to an EMC VNX.

Balance supports the VMWare and EMC parts.  Will it show anything for the Lefthand portion?  I know Lefthand is NOT on the IMT for Balance.



OnCommand Balance does not support HP Lefthand storage. With the focus on NetApp FAS storage, it is not in Balance's future, either.


Hello rbaxter,

Unfortunately, Balance will not be able to discover the Lefthand arrays so Balance will not be able to map the ESX hosts down to the storage array.

Thanks, Daniel
