One of the new features of System Center VMM 2012 is the ability of manage a supported storage. In a previous post, I’ve described, for example, how manage a Dell storage.

One interesting aspect that I’ve found in a recent event, is that also a Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) could be managed in the same way. Of course it must export the required interfaces to System Center, and also be supported on Hyper-V (if it runs on this kind of hypervisor).

One the first products that has introduced this functionality was StarWind (that realized basically an iSCSI software target, as introduced in the previous post: Windows Target iSCSI for free). This intent was announced at the beginning of this year.
