Understand storage containers and protocol endpoints, and how they are used to perform functions typically provided by LUNs.

- [Instructor] In this video,…I'll explain some of the objects…that are introduced when we start using…a storage array that supports virtual volumes.…The first object I want to talk about…is the storage container.…A storage container is a new type of object…that's specific to virtual volumes.…With virtual volumes, we're moving away from LUNs.…There's no VMFS5 formatted data stores here.…A LUN has typically provided two things.…Number one, a LUN is a container…for our virtual machine files,…and number two, a LUN is an access point for storage IO.…
Now the storage container fulfills that container role…that used to be handled by LUNs.…Our VVOLS will be stored in a storage container…and the tradition limitations of a LUN…do not apply to a storage container.…The only restriction is the maximum capacity…of the storage array.…The storage container is configured…by your storage array administrator,…and the desired capabilities are assigned to this container,…and an array can have multiple storage containers as well,…which is really useful if the array can provided…
