VMware Virtual SAN is a game-changer: it brings the benefits of the software-defined data center to storage for virtual environments. One of the most powerful aspects of Virtual SAN is its VM-centric policy-based management and automation, built on the Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) framework.
