SolidFire software interfaces

You can manage a SolidFire storage system by using NetApp Element 软件 interfaces and integration utilities.

NetApp Element 软件 user interface
用于设置 SolidFire 存储、监控集群容量和性能以及管理多租户基础架构中的存储活动。Element 是 SolidFire 集群中的核心存储操作系统。Element 软件在集群中的所有节点上独立运行,它可将集群中各个节点上的资源组合在一起,作为一个存储系统提供给外部客户端。Element 软件负责将此系统作为一个整体进行全集群协调、扩展和管理。此软件界面基于 Element API 构建。
NetApp Element 软件 API
用于使用一组对象、方法和例程来管理 SolidFire 存储。Element API 采用基于 HTTPS 的 JSON-RPC 协议。可以通过启用 API 日志来监控 Element UI 中的 API 操作,从而可查看对系统发出的方法。您可以同时启用请求和响应,以查看此系统对发出的方法做出的响应。
适用于 vCenter Server 的 NetApp Element 插件

用于配置和管理运行 Element 软件的存储集群。此插件为 VMware vSphere 中的 Element UI 提供了一种备用界面。

Integration utilities and tools
Although you typically manage your storage with the Element UI, Element API, and 适用于 vCenter Server 的 NetApp Element 插件, you can use additional utilities and tools.
  • Provides a convenient way to use the SolidFire API to administer your SolidFire storage system with VMware vRealize Orchestrator™.

  • SolidFire 命令行界面

    Enables you to manage your SolidFire cluster using the SolidFire command line.

  • SolidFire PowerShell

    Enables programmers to use a collection of Microsoft® Windows®  PowerShell® functions that use the SolidFire API to manage a SolidFire storage system.

  • SolidFire SDK Java

    Enables programmers to integrate the SolidFire API with the Java™ programming language.

  • SolidFire SDK .NET

    Enables programmers to integrate the SolidFire API with the .NET programming platform.

  • SolidFire SDK Python

    Enables programmers to integrate the SolidFire API with the Python™ programming language.

  • Integrates with the VMware® Site Recovery Manager™ (SRM) to enable communication with replicated SolidFire storage clusters (arrays) and execute supported workflows.

  • Integrates VSS shadow copies with SolidFire snapshots and clones. (Requires SolidFire login credentials)
