Viewing Engine Properties

Command Center allows cloud administrator to view all Virtual Private Storage Array engine types available for deployment on the cloud. To view VPSA engine properties navigate to Command Center Engines section from the left menu pane.

The VPSA engine types presented in this section are:

  • VPSA IO engines

  • VPSA app engines

  • VPSA composite engines

Toggling between the engine types is done via the tabs section in the top part of the dialog image273 .
