My customer JPMC has been greatly expanding their use of Solidfire/direct connect iSCSI storage. As we can't see that, the environment is not anything we can manage, and leaves us out of a major opportunity area.
For the customer, the use of SolidFire greatly reduces the use of VMDK. We would ask to investigate how we can consume target data from SolidFire, and better understand if we detect when a VM is provisioned with direct iSCSI (VM to SAN appliance).
We would need to understand the consumption model and impact of storage over iSCSI, understand and handle actions on VMs with such storage deployment.
More detail and additional internal discussion on this topic can be found at SVC-1571 in Jira.
