In this post I wanted to share a few short videos from the VMware Technical Communications team. The videos cover the concepts and architecture of Virtual Volumes and provide a good overview of the building blocks for a vVols deployment.
Virtual Volumes Part 1: Concepts
This first video provides an overview of some key Virtual Volumes concepts, including the relationship between Storage Containers, Virtual Datastores, and Protocol Endpoints.
Virtual Volumes part 2: Architecture
This second video dives into more details on how the various Virtual Volumes components interact. It discusses the role of the VASA Provider, Protocol Endpoints, and other components.
Hopefully these videos have given you a good introduction to Virtual Volumes and how the various components interact with each other.
Some other great resources for getting started with Virtual Volumes are:
