Sun Storage 7000 Provider for Microsoft VSS Software

The Sun Storage 7000 provider for Microsoft VSS Software allows the appliance to take consistent snapshots from Windows hosts which are using block targets. VSS coordinates snapshots to be sure block data is consistent. The service communicates with a set of workflows to coordinate taking of snapshots as seen from the application, not just with respect to the ZFS file system running on the appliance. It works over iSCSI, FC and SRP.
