What Essential tools storage vMotion utilize?

Will storage vMotion utilize hardware storage data move or the move will be drive on ESXi hosts level?

I would say if vMotion uses storage tools, it would be faster. Correct?

Thanks!

It depends on what type of storage you have and how it's configured.

Please do some reading on the concept of VAAI and how it works with NFS. With most NFS storage, you require a VIB to be installed on each host that comes from the storage vendor.
