vSAN Support for the Virtual Server Agent with VMware

For Service Pack 11 and later, the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) provides support for streaming backups, IntelliSnap backups, and restores of virtual machines on VMware Virtual SAN (vSAN) datastores.

Support has been certified by VMware with vSAN.

vSAN storage provides a consolidated logical view of physical storage resources across a cluster that can be used by virtual machines.

To use vSAN datastores, you can deploy VSA proxies on Windows virtual machines on all ESXi hosts in the cluster that contribute resources to the vSAN datastore. Deploying VSA proxies throughout the cluster improves performance. Backups and restores use HotAdd or NBD transport. SAN transport mode is not supported.
