Now that the latest Pure Storage vSphere Client Plugin is available as a remote plugin is is now deployed as an OVA. I have put together this quick script to automate deploying of the Pure Storage VMware Appliance.
The Pure Storage OVA is a single OVA deployment that can be configured for different roles. Today VM Analytics is the only available role, with more coming. Version 3.1.0 includes some new features and fixes, lets dive in and take a look.
On November 16, 2020 the latest version of the Pure1 VM Analytics OVA Collector (3.0) was released and with it comes some new Pure1 features! Let’s take a look at how the collector has changed, and what new features we now have within Pure1 VM Analytics.
Pure1 VM Analytics is a great tool to have in your environment. You don’t need to even have a Pure Storage array, but it makes it even better! Back in 2019 the collector was converted to an OVA format and has been much simpler to deploy. You can deploy it through the UI or even Powershell. With the latest update to the Terraform vSphere provider we can now deploy OVA’s, so lets jump in to see how we can deploy the VM Analytics collector!
