Re: Best Practice Array/Volume Size on Nimble AF40?

Hello,

Not really, a search on this forum will yield many results around the 10/15/20 VMs per datastore rule. Oh, and don't make your volumes any bigger than a few TB. Large multi-TB datastores are asking for trouble when thinking about snapshots, replication, and even performance.

i'd recommend to use VVols more than anything though.
