Snap Manger for SQL or similar behaviour with NFS

Want to start getting some of our SQL server estate away from or current configuration which uses FC attached Luns, SnapDrive and SMSQL.

 

To use any of the new netapp/vmware technologies to be able to quickly clone test copies of servers etc and look at product such as VMware vCloud Director it looks like having multiple LUNS on multiple volumes aren't really a good configuration.

 

Is there anything around or on the horizon from Netapp that allows you to do application consitent snapshots for SQL servers running entirely on .VMDK drives on NFS datastores.

 

I know that you can now see and work with .vmdk drives in snapdrive so wondering if this will be moving up to SMSQL?
