You can use zoning and LUN masking to segregate SAN activity and restrict access to storage devices.

You can protect access to storage in your vSphere environment by using zoning and LUN masking with your SAN resources. For example, you might manage zones defined for testing independently within the SAN so they do not interfere with activity in the production zones. Similarly, you might set up different zones for different departments.

When you set up zones, take into account any host groups that are set up on the SAN device.

Zoning and masking capabilities for each SAN switch and disk array and the tools for managing LUN masking are vendor specific.

See your SAN vendor's documentation and the vSphere Storage documentation.
