For storage discovery the standard is SMI-S. Allthough it is more a enterprise feature, this could be very usefull in combination with ISCSI-3 PR and Hyper-V Clusters. For more info on the standard: http://www.snia.org/forums/smi/
+1 SMI support on QNAP would be great. Especially now that SCVMM2012 is around the corner any many techies are already evaluating the beta versions. I am having challenges to get VMM2012 to see my remote storage. Could be me but so far it seems that SMI support would have helped
My name is Hector Linares. I am a program manager on the Virtual Machine Manager team. I own the storage automation feature set for the product. Feel free to reach out to me if you would like to discuss SMI-S requirements.
