Useful Links – vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA)

To be honest, I’ve not poked at the vSphere Storage Appliance since the vSphere 5.x Beta. That said, the technology itself looks promising, and as will be discussed on the BrownBag this week, it will become part of some of your vSphere designs. To help prep for the BrownBag or to learn overall about the
