Has anyone done a MongoDB deployment on their Nimble Array?

I am currently setting up a MongoDB server on Windows Server 2012 R2, of which will be a testing server on VMDKs.  I'm not sure how the Nimble would best handle this data if there is no real paging size. (If I was to do in-guest iSCSI.)  If anyone has any insight on this, it be much appreciated.

I am not sure what exactly you are looking for, but we were running MongoDB on a 3 node Windows cluster and found it performed poorly, we converted to 3-node Linux cluster and it has done much better. We have just over 30 collections and 400k objects, ~80gb of data and maintain about 500 connections. The drives are just regular virtual disks on a Nimble volume that is configured with the performance policy for the hypervisor type of the host. Nothing special going on really.

Thanks Nick,

This kind of feedback is exactly what I was going after.  We just started testing a 3-node Windows cluster and haven't really dug into it much.

Thanks again for the quick reply.
