Whiteboard- ZeroSnap Accelerated VM Cloning

A new feature in the Purity Operating Environment 3.0 release, ZeroSnap Accelerated VM Cloning integrates the FlashArray’s ZeroSnap snapshots with VMware’s VAAI xCopy API, to allow for instant, hardware-accelerated cloning of VMware VMs. VMs are cloned instantly via a metadata-only snapshot operation, and are pre-deduped, meaning no data movement or re-writing of data.
