Blog Post created by Paul Frisoli Employee on Jan 27, 2015

Nimble has functionality to integrate with System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) - a product for managing virtual machines in a Hyper-V environment. SCVMM can manage SMI-S compliant storage devices, such as Nimble Storage arrays, and when integrated with Nimble Storage arrays, SCVMM can:


  • Discover storage objects, such as pools, and volumes.
  • Classify discovered pools using friendly names.
  • Create logical units (volumes) from available capacity within storage pools.
  • Allocate discovered storage volumes or pools to defined host groups.


Supported Versions


  • Nimble OS 2.2.1 or later
  • Nimble Array Models (iSCSI only): CS2xx, CS300, CS4xx, CS500, CS700
  • Microsoft: SCVMM 2012 R2 installed on Windows Server 2012 R2
