Hey,

good question...

it was one of the interesting concept from VMware and also called VVOL's.

I don't have any documentation but I can provide you KB find here "Understanding Virtual Volumes (VVols) in VMware vSphere 6.0 (2113013) | VMware KB "

as of my knowledge, if you are using hyper or all flash storage you may no need to use VVOL's

Thank you..
