Summary
Per VM (limited) or Volume
Details
With SANsymphony the rough hierarchy is: physical disk(s) or LUNs -> Disk Pool -> Virtual Disk (=logical volume).

Although DataCore SANsymphony uses block-storage, the platform is capable of attaining per VM-granularity if desired.

In Microsoft Hyper-V environments, when a VM with vdisks is created through SCVMM, DataCore can be instructed to automatically carve out a Virtual Disk (=storage volume) for every individual vdisk. This way there is a 1-to-1 alignment from end-to-end and snapshots can be created on the VM-level. The per-VM functionality is realized by installing the DataCore Storage Management Provider in SCVMM.

Because of the per-host storage limitations in VMware vSphere environments, VVols is leveraged to provide per VM-granularity. DataCores VVols certification is limited to VMware vSphere 6.0-6.0U3. VMware vSphere 6.5 and 6.7 are not included.
