Nimble performance policies

I want to create some volumes on a Nimble CS1000 array for virtualised (VMware) SQL servers (2012).

Looking at the performance policies to be used, I have several options, but some of them have the same settings, so any advice on which to choose would be nice.

I see VMware ESX 5 with 4kb blocksize and caching and compression enabled.
There is also a vSphere Datastore for SQL Server with exact the same settings, so why a different policy for this?

And there is a SQL server and a SQL server 2012, both 8kb blocksize and both caching and compression enabled, so again, why 2 performance policies.

And then there is the SQL serv logs performance policy, 4kb blocksize and caching disabled, what make sense.

But which policies do I choose for data and for logs?

If you've got whole VM volumes and no in-guest iSCSI/RDM then you'd choose "VMware ESX 5" as a rule of thumb
