As a primer to the below demo videos, here's a brief description of the differences between Primary Storage and Supplemental Storage and how it relates to VCF is in order to set the table. Fortunately, it is very easy to distinguish between the two storage types:
Primary Storage is any storage type that you can connect to your Workload Domain as a part of the setup process within SDDC Manager. Today, that’s comprised of vSAN, NFS and VMFS on Fibre Channel.
Supplemental Storage simply means that you connect your storage system to a Workload Domain after it has been deployed. Examples of this storage type today include iSCSI and vVols.
