To manage storage multipathing and failover, VMware ESX/ESXi uses a special VMkernel layer, Pluggable Storage Architecture (PSA). The PSA is an open modular framework that coordinates the simultaneous operation of multiple multipathing plugins (MPPs). PSA is a collection of VMkernel APIs that allow third party hardware vendors to insert code directly into the ESX storage I/O path.Virtual SCSI (VSCSI) is VMKernel component that emulates a SCSI Virtual device to Virtual Machines. VSCSI supports multiple backends to allow direct passthrough access to external LUNS or flat backend access to VMFS and VSAN exposed datastores. VSCSI component also provides a filter framework to allow partners to add additional functionality in the IO path.
