VMware vCenter Plugin and VASA Provider with GAD?

Hi,

 

I tested the Hitachi Storage Plug-in for VMware vCenter (Web Client) and could not find information about the support of GAD volumes in this plugin.

After registering the HCS Instance, I could see both physical and the virtual storage machine, but I could choose only the phyiscal storage machine to create ldevs.

Is there a way to create GAD volumes with the plugin?

 

<EDIT>

I assume that it`s not supported since even the VASA Provider does not support it.

</EDIT>

 

I was not able to test it yet because of the quite diffictult documentation

Would it be possible to create GAD VVols with the VASA provider?

 

<EDIT>

GAD is mentioned here but it seems to be not supported at the moment:

</EDIT>

 

There where some good documents in the past for VMware performance best practices, but I was not able to find them. Maybe someone can share a link with me for the latest Version of vSphere 6?

 

Help would be much appreciated.

 

BR Stefan
