Find out types of Disk

I would like to know on which type of disk our Virtual machines are running on, for instance SSD solid state drive. All VMs are on the SAN.

Thanks

If the SAN has a VMWare plugin you may be able to find out easily.  If not you'll need to review the datastore and check the UUIDs and match them up on the SAN.

I don't see a particular storage plug-in.  What type of storage?

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Not familiar with it but looks like there is a vsphere plug-in available unless you want to login directly into the unit and review the LUNs

VMware vSphere is not going to be able to tell you, what type of disks are in your SAN without additional software or plugin.

You will need to login to your SAN, via Web Interface or console.
