VAAI Based Integration Expertise

SAN/NAS vendors hire Calsoft to leverage VAAI by offloading functionality from the ESX host to storage array through VAAI based integration. 
If you are looking to rework your existing line of arrays to integrate with the VAAI API, here are few benefits that we can help you realize with our VAAI based integration expertise. The benefits of VAAI (vSphere API for Array Integration) are directly related to the capabilities of the storage array.  
Customer Benefits:
VAAI allows more hypervisor compute power to remain available for running virtual machines.
