HP MSA 2040 Seperating VMDK storage from NSA (iSCSI) storage

 

HP MSA 2040 Seperating VMDK storage from NSA (iSCSI) storage

Hi,

I present storage from my 2040 to my esxi hosts - they then mount it as a datastore. 

I then build VMs on that datastore. The local disks on that datastore are vmdk local storage. (For example the C: is a vmdk)

However, some of my VM's require iSCSI their own storage.  (For example the S: drive is an iSCSI drive).

I was thinking of doing the following.  Pool A is reserved for VMDK storage (SSD disks)

Pool B is reserved for the NAS (iSCSI) storage  for the VM's (SSD disks).

Is that a good way to go about it?

ta.

Re: HP MSA 2040 Seperating VMDK storage from NSA (iSCSI) storage

Hi,

MSA is a block level device, thus it is assigning block to a VMDK filesystem or being used as ISCSI direct storage.

Therefore , from MSA perspective , you can use them either way.

Having one pool assigned to VMDK and other to ISCSI storage is also fine, there is nothing wrong in doing it.
