The following describes the support strategy for CSI Driver for Dell EMC PowerFlex:
The CSI Driver for Dell EMC PowerFlex image, which is the built driver code, is available on
https://hub.docker.com/r/dellemc/csi-vxflexos and is officially supported by Dell EMC.
- A Dell EMC Storage Automation and Developer Resources page is available and includes developer resources, case studies, forums, and other materials. It is anticipated that members of this page will be excellent resources in addressing product issues and concerns. It is recommended this community page be the first page customers use for their product questions prior to contacting Dell EMC Support.
