VASA storage capabilities

OneFS integrates with VMware vCenter through VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA) to display storage capabilities of Isilon clusters in vCenter.

The following storage capabilities are displayed through vCenter:

Archive
The Isilon cluster is composed of Isilon NL-Series nodes. The cluster is configured for maximum capacity.
Performance
The Isilon cluster is composed of Isilon i-Series, Isilon X-Series, or Isilon S-Series nodes. The cluster is configured for maximum performance.
Note Image

If a node type supports SSDs but none are installed, the cluster is recognized as a capacity cluster.

Capacity
The Isilon cluster is composed of Isilon X-Series nodes that do not contain SSDs. The cluster is configured for a balance between performance and capacity.
Hybrid
The Isilon cluster is composed of nodes associated with two or more storage capabilities. For example, if the cluster contained both Isilon S-Series and NL-Series nodes, the storage capability of the cluster is displayed as Hybrid.
