First off, the development teams have been working hard to provide new host interface support on selected systems:
- The EF570 and E5700 systems get NVMe over Fabric support for RMDA over 100Gb Converged Ethernet (RoCE v2); on the EF570 this provides 100us or lower latency for random reads
- The E2800 gets 32Gb FC and 25Gb iSCSI support.
SANtricity Unified Manager is a new web based manager that supports up to 500 EF/E-Series arrays. This replaces the legacy SANtricity EMW when all the arrays are managed with SANtricity System Manager.
Integrated with SANtricity Web Services Proxy, SANtricity Unified Manager supports LDAP, role-based access (RBAC), CA and SSL Certificates, and you can group arrays into logical groups as well.
Sync and async mirroring is also supported for arrays managed by System Manager, but they must be running SANtricity 11.50.
