Volumes in VMAX


This is going to be a dumb question so just bare with me.  We have Unisphere

I have navigated down to volumes on one of the frames:

[FRAMEID] > storage > Storage Groups Dashboard > Storage Groups > [STORAGEGROUPSELECTED] > Volumes

This is where I am and wanted to make sure I got the right understanding for what VMAX is calling Volumes.

Are Volumes in this view considered LUNs?  This goes into a much bigger question as I am trying to map LUNs found on VMAX to datastores in vCenter.

Thank you for your help.

Re: Volumes in VMAX

A volume=LUN=device. Different Dell EMC arrays tend to use different terminology but anything in a storage group is a LUN.
