Accelerated iSCSI with VirtualConnect and OneView

Hello!

 

As it seems that OneView doesn't support accelerated iSCSI with VirtualConnect Modules: Is there a workaround available when using VMware ESXi 5.1 host connected to StoreVirtual 4800 (aka Lefthand - iSCSI)???

 

Best regards

Re: Accelerated iSCSI with VirtualConnect and OneView

Unfortunately, the only workaround is to use Virtual Connect Manager, which means you would not be able to use OneView for management.  With today's CPU's, Hardware Accelerated iSCSI isn't that much of a benefit, unless you need to BfS with iSCSI.

 

While we cannot talk about our roadmap in a public forum, do know that we listen to customer feedback, including these forums.  I will provide this back to the product team to help prioritize.

Support was added in OneVIew 3.0 for using HW accelerated iSCSI connections for boot or data.  The 3.0 release notes has more information on the feature.
