VMware integration

OneFS integrates with several VMware products, including vSphere, vCenter, and ESXi.

For example, OneFS works with the VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA) so that you can view information about an Isilon cluster in vSphere. OneFS also works with the VMware vSphere API for Array Integration (VAAI) to support the following features for block storage: hardware-assisted locking, full copy, and block zeroing. VAAI for NFS requires an ESXi plug-in.

With the Isilon Storage Replication Adapter, OneFS integrates with the VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager to recover virtual machines that are replicated between Isilon clusters.
