What is vSphere Virtual Volumes?

Virtual Volumes is a SAN/NAS management and integration framework that exposes virtual disks as native storage objects and enables array-based operations at the virtual disk level. Virtual Volumes transforms the data plane of SAN/NAS devices by aligning storage consumptions and operations with the VM. In other words, Virtual Volumes makes SAN/NAS devices VM-aware and unlocks the ability to leverage array based data services with a VM-centric approach at the granularity of a single virtual disk.
Virtual Volumes is an industry-wide initiative that will allow customers to leverage the unique capabilities of their current storage investments and transition without disruption to a simpler and more efficient operational model optimized for virtual environments that works across all storage types.
