VSA 10 TB limit

Hi,

Does anyone have any update on the increase of the 10TB limit of the vsa?
I thought it would come with the 10.5 release but no luck so far

Re: VSA 10 TB limit

guess it got suck with the SMI-S support and unmap. 

 

HP.  PLEEEEEASE don't forget about StoreVirtual.  This was a great product and still could be, but not if you stop developement or don't communicate about its roadmap.

Nah and it stinks.  I have had good results running multiple VSAs per host, but it costs more money and has to be implemented properly.

What is the trick to make multiple VSAs work on one host?

Separate NICs/vSwitches, RAID Controllers?

I've done it with ample resources, but haven't split those two, and I can defintely tell things are well with two or more VSAs on one host.

Re: VSA 10 TB limit

On ESXi 5 I had to increase the VMFS heap size to allow 20TB of local storage to be attached to the VSAs. I also set the order of the VSAs in the cluster to ensure a host failure or reboot wouldn't result in an all volumes unavailable scenario.

 

With multiple 10GB NICs I have been running the VSAs on the same dvs pg without any latency issues. I only have a single p420i RAID controller, but 25 spindles seems to handle the IO from two VSAs without any issue.

I really am hoping HP get the increase sorted out soon. I'm hoping for 24TB.
