Understand VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) objects like replicas and components. Understand performance implications of the VSAN network and flash layer.
- [Instructor] In this video, we'll spend some time…focusing on how virtual machine objects are stored…in a VSAN data store and we'll take a look…at the network that interconnects the ESXi hosts…that are participating in the VSAN cluster.…So here we see a diagram of three ESXi hosts,…and these ESXi hosts are part of a VSAN cluster.…And we can see that the two ESXi hosts are being…interconnected by two physical switches.…This is a best practice for VSAN.…
We want to make sure that we have physical redundancy…in our network.…That way if we have a single switch failure,…we don't lose VSAN connectivity.…And inside the ESXi hosts you can see that each host…has been configured with a VSAN VM kernel port.…This is a special VM kernel port…that will be used to pass VSAN traffic…between these ESXi hosts.…Now, it's really important that this network is fast.…And that's why I've shown two 10-gig switches…in our network.…
You could deploy one-gig switches.…One gig is a supported option with VSAN.…But the best practice is to have a 10-gigabit-per-second…
