A list of vSphere 4.1 VAAI compatible arrays?

This list of VAAI arrays detected by the Pluggable Storage Architecture appears in /etc/vmware/esx.conf of an ESX 4.1 host.

Appears  these are there to support the vendors whose arrays will support VAAI now or in the future with firmware.

    3PAR supports VAAI, after you install their plug-in module and upgrade the array to 2.3.1 MU2 or later.
