To support high security environments, MagicFlex is deployed as a virtual appliance that is agentless, operates in read-only mode, and all data is store on premises (Internet access is not required).
The virtual appliance is simple to install on VMware or Hyper-V; once installed you can connect via a web interface and then add your Virtual Connect domains, OneView Logical Interconnects, WMware vSwitch and SAN and LAN switches.
The MagicFlex Engine polls the Virtual Connect domains and the external interfaces including the virtual machines and the SAN and LAN switches. MagicFlex collects data via SSH (for VCM/VCEM and SAN switches), REST (for OneView) and VMware SDK.
