Easier deployment of VMs needs sophisticated storage arrays

More and more virtual machines are being deployed to run all types of business services in VMware environments, from simple file share solutions up to business critical applications. But getting virtual machines (VMs) to run today requires considerable efforts from both your VMware administrators and your storage specialists. Close coordination is required and even with the best operational processes, deploying your VMs can take more time than you would like. VMware vSphere Virtual Volumes (VVOL) have been released in 2015 and are designed to help streamline deployment, make ongoing administration of VMs more straightforward, and to allow each VM to be managed individually. Fujitsu’s ETERNUS DX S5/S4/S3[1] storage arrays supported VVOL from day one of VMware’s initial release.
