New PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim

While the original PerfectStorage automates the zero-fill/SCSI UNMAP process on thin-provisioned drives without taking servers offline, depending on your storage solution, this may be all you need to do in order to show the space as reclaimed to your storage controller. However, some storage solutions may require an additional step to complete the communication of the reclaim operation to the storage controller.

PerfectStorage ESXi Host Reclaim reclaims thin-provisioned LUN space by sending SCSI UNMAP reclaim commands to a VMware ESXi-hosted datastore. The reclaim operation signals the underlying storage controller for the datastore that free space no longer used in the datastore can be reclaimed at the LUN, automating the remaining part of the reclaim process started in the virtual guest.
