Effect of VAAI on cloning with All Flash Arrays

Good Post by Mohan Potheri (thank you)

Cloning virtual machines is an area where VAAI can provide many advantages. Flash storage arrays provide excellent IO performance. We wanted to see what difference VAAI makes in virtual machine cloning operations for “All Flash Arrays”.
