In this video, Russ Long discusses the use of flash based resources within the DRS cluster. Learn how flash resource are incorporated in your cluster for VM utilization.
- [Instructor] If you use flash resources…in your environment, you can manage a VM to utilize…flash resources with DRS.…Flash capacity is reported from the host…to the V Center server.…Only the most recent reports will be visible.…This value is checked every time DRS runs,…which is five minutes by default.…There is only one flash resource that can be used…for DRS VM boots.…This means there's no need to choose a flash resource…every time we boot.…Virtual flash resources are checked during VM power on.…
And the host with enough flash resources is used.…If not enough resources exist to meet the needs…of a virtual machine, the VM is not powered on.…So once the VM does power on to a host…with sufficient flash resources,…DRS links the VM to that host by establishing…a soft affinity.…This means the VM will only migrate…when there are mandatory evacuation issues.…Things like host maintenance or lack of host resources.…
