VMware vVols and HP 3PAR StoreServ at VMworld

On Monday at VMware, HP had a session diving into VMware vVols.  The session was presented by Ivan Iannaccone from our 3PAR product management team as well as Patrick Dirks from VMware who manages the vVols team. 

This is audio from that session

If you rather download this as a podcast, right click here and save the MP3 file. You can also subscribe to my podcast on iTunes - go to the iTunes store and search for "Around the Storage Block" or you can open this link and click on the "View in iTunes" button under my picture.

 I did a blog post with a demo on vVols (EDITOR'S NOTE: Post was not migrated during HP separation) nearly 2 years ago and while vVols isn't generally available, it is certainly getting closer.  What VMware did announce is that vVols would be in vSphere 6.0 but the timing of that has not been publicly disclosed.  

I'll also include the demo in this post to make it easy for you to watch. Probably best to play this on YouTube, change the setting to HD and watch it full screen. (EDITOR'S NOTE: The original video was removed from YouTube - this is a session from VMUG in Milan Italy explaining vVols and a demo from November 2015).

Check out the HPE 3PAR StoreServ product page where you can find much more 3PAR information.

I have worked at HP and now HPE for 32 years, all of it around storage but 100% focused on storage since 1990. I blog, create videos, and podcasts to help you better understand HPE Storage.

Thanks for sharing, I have used the info to take a look at how we may work differently in the future by utilising VVOLs in this post here:
