Subject Re: Managing individual ESXi instances

I know, for example, that I'd like to test out that managed storage works
with it.

I've added support for managed storage to XenServer, ESX/vCenter, and KVM
for CloudStack.

Another hypervisor type - to me personally - means I'd to verify managed
storage works with it.

Depending on how radical the changes for an ESX-only solution are, it may
or may not work "out of the box" for managed storage.
