VSI 7.1 Is Here, vSphere 6.5 supported!


We have just released the 7.1 version of our vSphere vCenter plugin, if you are new to the VSI plugin, I highly suggest you start with these posts here

VSI enables VMware administrators to provision and manage the following EMC storage systems for VMware ESX/ESXi hosts:

  • EMC Unity™
