Understand the basic concepts of Virtual Volumes (VVOL) and how they differ from traditional vSphere VMFS storage solutions.
- [Instructor] In this video,…I'll explain the basic concepts…of Virtual Volumes or VVols,…and by now you may have heard a little bit about VVols,…and we'll spend a few slides here…just going over some of the basic aspects.…Virtual Volumes can be used on supported…Fibre Channel over Ethernet,…iSCSI and NFS devices.…And they allow storage array operations…to be carried out on individual objects.…So let's take a step back…and think about the overall change and approach…that we're taking with Virtual Volumes.…
Let's assume you have many VMs,…and all of your virtual machines have varying requirements.…Some VMs must replicate daily,…some must replicate hourly,…and some must replicate in real-time.…Maybe some VMs require SSD type speed,…while others will work just fine on 7200 RPM SATA Drives.…So right now,…how do we meet these different needs?…Well we create different datastores,…with different replication intervals.…
And these different datastores all have…different classes of service,…and we put the virtual machine on the datastore…
