You can install the I/O filters in your vSphere environment and then enable data services that the filters provide on your virtual machines.

Before you begin

VMware partners create I/O filters through the vSphere APIs for I/O Filtering (VAIO) developer program and distribute them as filter packages. Packages offered as vSphere Installation Bundles (VIBs) can include I/O filter daemons, CIM providers, and other associated components. For information, contact your vendor or your VMware representative.

What to do next

For information about troubleshooting I/O filters, see the vSphere Troubleshooting documentation.
