Did you running into any issue with VACI on NetApp filer while running hardware based clone or FlexClone?
Sorry but i don't have NetApp in my infrastracture. we use Hp SAN and EMC
Thanks Armin for your kindly update.
if you need anything i glad to help.
Due to the additional costs that come with implementation of vCenter, would you recommend ESXi to a budding small enterprise that is not yet financially stable? Is it worthwhile?
Which SAN is preferred over ESXi? I am using Dell Compellent so far, it seems to be fine. But I have heard people using EMC, HP. I am planning to buy one more storage. Which one do you recommend for ESXi hosts?
We are able to patch our hosts during production hours with the ability to keep services running.
The vMotion in particular I think is the most valuable because this feature provides migrations of virtual machines in case you want to run do maintenance.
The free ESXi hypervisor was a great way to get started, as it allowed us to introduce virtual machines so that users could start to experience the advantages.
It has allowed us to be more resilient to infrastructure and hardware failure, reduced hardware costs, and decreased recovery time from failures.
The most valuable feature is the VDP Backup solution.
The ability of a running VM to be quickly relocated to another hypervisor or launched at another site via replicated storage greatly reduces downtime.
Its DR facility is good. Within a moment, data can be retrieve from another physical location over the Internet. The speed to recover data is good.
