The ESI Service and the ESI SCOM Management Packs work in conjunction with Microsoft System Center Operations Manager for centralized discovery and monitoring of all supported EMC storage systems and storage-system components.

The ESI Service and ESI SCOM Management Packs support the same VMAX family, VNX, and CX4 series of storage systems that are supported in ESI. The ESI SCOM Management Packs also support EMC VPLEX systems and Symmetrix DMX-4 storage systems.
