We are going though a storage refresh and talking to many different storage vendors. Seems like some of the smaller vendors aren?t even sure what VAAI is (they don?t get a second conf call)
Here?s a nice video from VMware explaining the basics of VAAI.
I found another good post explaining the features of VAAI, check it out http://gestaltit.com/all/tech/storage/bas/vaai-vmware-admin/
