VxFlex OS has implemented VMwares vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA). VxFlex OSs VASA enables control of VxFlex OS storage to be handled by the vCenter administrator. VxFlex OSs VASA uses Virtual Volumes (VVols) to enable VMs hosted on VMware vSphere to have their storage mapped directly to storage in VxFlex OS.

VxFlex OSs VASA automatically assigns VMware storage policies based on keywords
that appear in the VxFlex OS Storage Pool names.

VxFlex OSs VASA runs on a separate VM that needs to be deployed.

Dell EMC VxFlex OS is currently not listed in the VMware Compatibility Guide for VVOL support.
