This document is aimed at Hypervisor software providers and providers of storage intended for use with Hypervisor environments. It uses Hypervisor examples to describe the use of commands from
the SCSI T10 Standards for performance and utilization enhancements such as copy offload, atomic sequence offload, and space reclamation technology in a blocks environment. This includes using the SCSI EXTENDED COPY command for providing copy offload services, the SCSI COMPARE AND WRITE command for atomic sequence offload, and SCSI unmap operations for space reclamation services.
