In August 2013 I wrote about the VMAX Content Pack for VMware’s newly released Log Insight product (v1.0). At the time of release VMware was pushing hard for content packs and rode me pretty ragged for 2 weeks to produce one. As a result much of the detail around items like widgets was minimal. This… Continue Reading →
The new VMAX Content Pack for Log Insight can be found here in the VMware Cloud Marketplace: https://solutionexchange.vmware.com/store/products/emc-vmax-content-pack All the information that you need to use the VMAX content pack is included in the download so I’ll keep this blog entry short. There is also a demo you can view to get an overview of… Continue Reading →

The demo was created using VMware Log Insight v1.5 and the EMC VMAX Content Pack 1.5.1 (includes auditing information). Look for an update shortly on the 2.0 version of the EMC VMAX CP.
This is our Service Release for the GA PowerMaxOS that came out in September 2020. This is our standard practice after a major release so that we can both fix any issues that may have come up (though I should note we do have a recent service pack, too) and to include some new features… Continue Reading →
I’ve updated the Dell EMC VMAX and PowerMax Content Pack for VMware Log Insight on the VMware Marketplace. The new version is 1.2. It does take a day or two for the new version to show up within your own Log Insight Marketplace instance, so if you would like the latest version now you’ll have… Continue Reading →
In the table below I’ve listed the most common plug-ins and software solutions used in VMware environments and the current version and release date. I don’t always post a blog on every release so my last post on a plug-in may not cover the most recent release. The table is no particular order. Software/Plugin Version… Continue Reading →
Today we officially launched the latest PowerMaxOS (5978.669.669) which, along with accompanying software releases, offers some new VMware capabilities that have been in high demand from our customers.
