With EMC PowerPath/VE, you can now deliver advanced PowerPath features to streamline and automate I/O performance of VMware vSphere (ESX server 4) virtual environments.
With EMC PowerPath/VE, you can standardize path management across heterogeneous physical and virtual environments and automate and optimize virtual server, storage, and path utilization in a dynamic virtual environment. This eliminates the need to manually load-balance virtual machines and I/O-intensive applications in hyper-consolidated environments.
The trial software may be downloaded on Powerlink or off of EMC Community Network (ECN), see appropriate path and URL below:

The PowerPath family provides advanced path management with multipathing for physical and virtual environments, nondisruptive migration, and encryption capabilities.
- PowerPath Multipathing and PowerPath/VE are host-resident software applications that intelligently manage host-to-storage I/O data paths to maximize the performance and availability of mission-critical applications in physical and virtual environments.
- PowerPath Migration Enabler insulates hosts from changes in the storage infrastructure; allows nondisruptive data migrations; and enables array-based replication, virtualization, and host-based migrations to eliminate application downtime during data migrations or virtualization implementations. It enables migrations through an array, within an array, through the network, or through the host.
- PowerPath Encryption with RSA is a host-based, data-at-rest encryption solution utilizing RSA Key Manager for the Datacenter to protect information in the event it becomes compromised through unauthorized access or disk removal, and to ensure compliance with internal, private, and government standards.
Chad Sakac, EMC Vice President, VMware Technology Alliance, explains the tight integration between EMC PowerPath/VE and VMware vSphere and points out its dramatic performance and availability potential. Learn how your infrastructure behind vSphere can meet your performance and availability requirements.
PowerPath/VE will be available in June. Pricing starts at $2,100 per physical server for new PowerPath customers and $1,430 for current customers.
