In this video, Russ Long discusses how Storage DRS works using a datastore cluster. Learn how the theory behind how a Storage DRS cluster can help improve cluster performance.
- [Instructor] Storage DRS allows DRS…to control resources utilized among data stores,…much in the same manner DRS did for our compute resources.…Storage DRS focuses on data stores within a storage cluster.…By monitoring performance and space available,…DRS makes decisions on where to place VM files…within the data store cluster.…Now before we can even enable storage DRS,…we must first create a storage cluster.…
This is sometimes referred to as a storage pod…within the vSphere API.…Now this cluster is a collection of resources…that is used collectively by hosts in our environment.…When we apply storage DRS to a storage cluster,…the resources will be used by SDRS…to help alleviate bottlenecks in performance…and lack of space within the cluster.…Now storage DRS works in the almost same exact manner…as regular DRS.…
We have an automation level, we have thresholds that we set.…When those thresholds are violated,…storage VMotion will attempt to migrate…virtual machine files from one data store…to another in the cluster.…
