Deploying NexentaStor as a VSA
NexentaStor VSA storage pools are built on VMDKs presented by the HCI cluster, utilizing the storage resiliency that is inherent to the core HCI storage array. Built with the NexentaStor REST API, and deployed as a VSA can be integrated with existing Nexenta storage infrastructures and managed through the NexentaFusion interface or the VMware vCenter Plugin.
