This is a nice short video which I created recently for the VMware KBTV site. It will take you through a complete installation and configuration of the vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA) in under 10 minutes (and that is pretty much in real-time). It will also try to show you what is happening behind the scenes, from a network configuration and a storage configuration perspective. The primary objective is to show you how simple it is to install and configure the new vSphere Storage Appliance that we are launching with vSphere 5.0.
