Over the past few weeks, I have been working on writing a vRealize Orchestrator workflow package for Virtual Volumes and the FlashArray. While that is not quite ready to go out, I think some basics for starting to use vRO and VVols are worth noting.
There are three main parts of using VVols with vRO:
- Core vCenter SDK–this is what you use to create VMs, datastores, etc.
- SMS–this is the service that manages storage providers (VASA) and replication for VVols.
- PBM–this is the service that you use for storage policy based features.
