[Review]: VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO)

VMware vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO)

This is not a new features on last vSphere version but I went to write a post about that. We had to deploy different replication scenarios for our customers and some customers needs Point-In-Time Recovery (PiT) and The PiT solutions using VAIO actually so learning about the API is necessary for administrators.

The vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) were introduced in vSphere 6.0 Update 1.

These use cases are: Replication, Caching, Quality of service (VMware only), Encryption (VMware only).
