Solution Overview

Pure Storage FlashArray introduced vVols support with its Purity 5.0 operating system. VMware vVols offers control over resources at the VM level eliminating storage over-provisioning. vVols can also streamline storage and VMware admin operations by separating storage presentation from storage consumption, allowing the VMware admin to be self-sufficient. With vVols, VMware can communicate to the array to find out what features it supports and allow the VMware administrator to assign, change or remove functionality on a vVols on-demand and via policies.
