I've seen reference to possible development between NetApp/VMWare of space reclamation for vmfs datastores. Here's a post linked here http://www.netapp.com/us/communities/tech-ontap/tot-vstorage-0309.html
This would be a really useful feature and i'd like to know if anyone has seen a possible release date for getting space reclamation for vmfs datastores?
Any advice gratefully received.

I stumbled across the following on VMware forums:
"What's New in vSphere 5.0:
Storage APIs - Array Integration: Thin Provisioning. Offers an ability to reclaim blocks of a thin provisioned LUN
on the array when a virtual disk is deleted."
It looks like a very similar doc is now 'officialy' available here:
