Fabric administrators create storage reservation policies to group datastores that have similar characteristics, such as speed or price. After you create the storage reservation policy, you then need to populate it with datastores before tenant administrators and business group managers can use the policy in a blueprint.

After the storage reservation policy is created, populate it with datastores. A datastore can belong to only one storage reservation policy. Add multiple datastores to create a group of datastores for use with a blueprint.
