Understand the basic concepts of VSAN and how it differs from traditional VMFS storage solutions. Learn about disk groups and VSAN data stores.
- [Instructor] In this video, I'll cover the basics of VSAN.…We'll look at some of the components that are used…in a VSAN Datastore…and we'll talk about how VSAN can be used…to create shared storage out of local storage.…Shared storage is required for many vSphere features…including vMotion, high availability, and DRS.…And in this example, we see here a virtual machine…running on ESXi Host 1.…Now this is where the live state of…the virtual machine is running,…the ESXi Host.…
So the current contents of memory are there…and the virtual hardware for the virtual machine.…That stuff is all in ESXi Host 1.…But the virtual machine also has a set of files…like a VMX file, and a VMDK file.…And those files are all stored on the Datastore.…So maybe we want to take this virtual machine…and move it from ESXi Host 1 to ESXi Host 2…for whatever reason.…Maybe we're load balancing,…or maybe Host 1 needs a memory upgrade…or something along those lines.…
For whatever reason,…we want to vMotion that virtual machine…from Host 1 to Host 2 with no downtime.…
