    Raw device mapping (RDM) is an option in the VMware server virtualization environment that enables a storage logical unit number (LUN) to be directly connected to a virtual machine (VM) from the storage area network (SAN).

    RDM, which permits the use of existing SAN commands, is generally used to improve performance in I/O-intensive applications. RDM can be configured in either virtual compatibility mode or physical compatibility mode. Virtual mode provides benefits found in VMFS, such as advanced file locking and snapshots. Physical mode provides access to most hardware functions of the storage system that is mapped.
