http://blogs.vmware.com/kbtv/ - In this video you will get a demonstration of the View Composer API for Array Integration in VMware View 5.1 which is currently in a "Tech Preview" state.

"Tech Preview" implies that the feature is experimental and should only be used in a
test and development environment. For more details see https://www.vmware.com/support/polici...

Essentially, what the feature allows you to do is to offload the creation of the linked clones which back your View desktops to the storage array, and let the storage array handle this task. The main advantage of VCAI is an improvement in performance and a reduction in the time taken to provision desktops based on linked clone pools. This task can now be offloaded to the array, which can then provision these linked clones natively rather than have the ESXi host do it.

This video features our friend Cormac Hogan who is a Senior Technical Marketing Architect for Storage at VMware.
