vSphere storage is in almost every case also remote storage. With most IT environments desiring vSphere’s high-availability features with VMotion, you’ll quickly find that SAN knowledge is fundamentally important for ESXperts. Get that knowledge in this session. In it, Greg Shields explains the pro’s and con’s of Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and packaged software-plus-storage solutions. He’ll outline the best practices for connecting each of these three storage types to ESX, helping you avoid many of the common storage mistakes that impact performance and availability. You’ll learn about storage’s more challenging topics, such as NPIV for Fibre Channel and MPIO for iSCSI, and leave with the comfort that you can correctly connect ESX servers to storage in your environment at home.
