    When the hardware acceleration functionality is supported, the host can get hardware assistance and perform the following operations faster and more efficiently:

    Migration of virtual machines with Storage vMotion

    Deployment of virtual machines from templates

    Cloning of virtual machines or templates

    VMFS clustered locking and metadata operations for virtual machine files

    Writes to thin provisioned and thick virtual disks

    Creation of fault-tolerant virtual machines
