      Hi,

       

      I've just been asked by a customer if Nimble support VASA (VMware API for Storage Awareness) - any ideas?

       

      Thanks

      Ryan

          Hi Ryan,

           

          This is something that's being worked on in Engineering right now. However VASA is something really aimed more towards the legacy storage vendors who need to provide profile information to VMware features such as Storage DRS or Profile Driven Storage to ensure that VMs get correctly placed on fast or slow tiers of storage - which is something Nimble doesn't really worry about (due to the removal of tiers within the storage array itself).

           

          There's a good answer to a similar question on the VMware Forums, available here Nimble Storage: Storage Providers? | VMware Communities
