Understand proper VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) design to ensure that a rack level failure can be tolerated.
- [Narrator] In this video,…I'll talk VSAN Fault Domains…and we'll learn how they can be used to maximize…the availability of our VSAN cluster.…VSAN uses the local storage of ESXi hosts…to create a shared data store…and this means that critical virtual machine data…actually resides on the local storage devices…of our ESXi hosts.…We can create storage policies that will govern…how many host failures a virtual machine…should tolerate…and based on these storage policies,…the virtual machine data will be mirrored…across multiple ESXi hosts.…
For example, with virtual machine one…in our slide, we have a policy that says…that this virtual machine must tolerate…a single host failure…and therefore, it's VMDK object,…or virtual desk, will be stored…on two different hosts.…Now we have the ability to tolerate…a single ESXi host failure.…Running on ESXi01 is the witness…and the witness is what controls…which of these virtual disk copies…is actually active.…
But what if all three of these ESXi hosts…are in the same rack?…Here we see a virtual machine…
