PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim (PS/EHR) works in conjunction with PerfectStorage to ensure that your valuable disk space can be reclaimed in VMware thin-provisioned environments.
PS/EHR reclaims thin provisioned LUN space by sending SCSI UNMAP reclaim commands to a VMware ESXi hosted datastore. The reclaim operation signals the underlying storage controller for the datastore that free space no longer used in the datastore can be reclaimed at the LUN.
Our new PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim works in conjunction with PerfectStorage to ensure that your valuable disk space can be automatically reclaimed in VMware thin-provisioned environments at the datastore level.
PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim reclaims thin-provisioned LUN space by sending SCSI UNMAP reclaim commands to a VMware ESXi-hosted datastore. The reclaim operation signals the underlying storage controller for the datastore that free space no longer used in the datastore can be reclaimed at the LUN, automating the remaining part of the reclaim process started in the virtual guest.
How PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim Works with the PerfectStorage Client
PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim works in conjunction with PerfectStorage to ensure that your valuable disk space can be reclaimed in VMware thin-provisioned environments.
PerfectStorage is installed on physical ShiChuang Servers or virtualized ShiChuang Servers and it is used to shrink thin-provisioned guest drives or data drives that are mapped to a thin-provisioned LUN on a storage controller. PerfectStorage can also be centrally managed by the free PerfectStorage Enterprise Console, included optionally with all PerfectStorage installations.
NEW: Automatic VMware ESXi Host Space ReclamationPerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim provides an easy way to perform the reclaim operation; either manually or on an automated scheduled basis (daily, weekly, monthly or one-time). PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim is optimized for HP 3PAR and XtremIO storage controllers so that datastore reclaims are performed according to HP and XtremIO best practices.
The bundle consists of the following software packages:
PerfectStorage Client (x86/x64)
Installed on any ShiChuang system, virtual or physical, where you wish
to reclaim space.
PerfectStorage Management Console (x64)
Used to deploy, configure and manage PerfectStorage Clients.
