BlueXP Console Updates

This September, we added some additional support to BlueXP Console to help manage storage and services. Here’s what was updated:

  • Support for E-Series and StorageGRID®.
    You can also manage E-Series and StorageGRID arrays in BlueXP Console in addition to the existing capability to manage different storage endpoints—including AFF or FAS systems on-premises, Cloud Volumes ONTAP across hyperscalers, Kubernetes, or cloud-native object storage.
  • Drag-and-drop capabilities.
    BlueXP Console’s drag-and-drop functionality isn’t just for data replication. This functionality extends to other user actions, including creating cloud backup copies, tiering storage, installing Trident, and initiating Cloud Sync transfers.

New Cloud Backup Features

Cloud Backup also has a new feature this month, one that builds off of the object lock support features introduced in the previous release.

  • Object lock support is now available for StorageGRID and dark site deployment.
    Initiate backups by dragging and dropping into StorageGRID and selecting from one of the different options on the DataLock policy screen to set your preferred level of protection.

What’s New in FSx for ONTAP

We’ve added options that will help you lower your TCO and also expand support options with this month’s new FSx for ONTAP updates:

  • New external NFS data stores for VMware Cloud on AWS using FSx for ONTAP.
    VMware Cloud on AWS users who need a lot of computer power and less storage capacity or vice versa, now can have it both ways thanks to FSx for ONTAP. You can provision external NFS data stores for VMware Cloud through FSx for ONTAP. This change can help you control your specific storage needs, move workloads, and reduce your TCO.

Data Sense Updates

This month’s final update comes from Data Sense. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Now you can scan SharePoint on-premises.
    The latest updates will allow you to start scanning SharePoint on-premises using Data Sense.

BlueXP Console offers a comprehensive way to control and access your data all in one place. Gain access to all these new features and more by signing up for BlueXP Console today.
