VMware vSphere 4.1 brings many new capabilities to further extend the benefits of vSphere 4.0. These new features and enhancements to core capabilities in vSphere provide more performance optimization, and easier provisioning, monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. This paper focuses on the storage-specific features and enhancements that are available in 4.1, and provides an overview of what new means exist for optimizing, monitoring and troubleshooting storage-related issues with both the vCenter and command-line interfaces provided in this release. Wherever possible, the paper will also provide use cases and requirements that may apply to the use of these new functions.
