Hi

Thank you for coming on HPE Community Forums

Yes it does support Vvols

Creating storage on the HPE Primera storage system

VVs that can then be exported for discovery by the host. For a comprehensive description of CLI commands, see the HPE Primera Command Line Interface Reference on the https://www.hpe.com/info/Primera600-docs website.

Creating the HPE Primera virtual volumes

VVols are the only data layer visible to hosts. After you devise a plan for allocating space for the host, create the VVs on the HPE Primera storage system.

Volumes can be provisioned from one or more common provisioning groups (CPGs). Volumes can be thinly provisioned or thinly deduplicated and thinly compressed (Reduce). Optionally, specify a CPG for snapshot space for provisioned volumes.

For information about creating volumes with the HPE Primera OS on the HPE Primera storage system, see the https://www.hpe.com/info/Primera600-docs

Also please refer HPE Primera: VMware ESXi Implementation Guide Using the below link.

VMware vvols? Not yet. Hopefully soon. And I won't commit to any more than that. For more details, talk to Sales.
