In this video, learn how to form a datastore cluster using a group of similar datastores and configure cluster settings to control load balancing based on used capacity and storage latency in vSphere 6.7.
- [Rick Voiceover] In this video I'll show you … how to create a datastore cluster and then … enable storage DRS on that datastore cluster. … So let's go to the storage view here … in the vSphere Client and you can see here … I have three datastores. … Now, when I enable stored DRS, what I have to … bear in mind is that virtual machines can … potentially be migrated from any of these datastores … to any of the other datastores in the cluster. … So, I want to choose three datastores that … are essentially interchangeable. … So if one of these datastores is replicated, … and one is not, they're not a good fit … for a storage DRS cluster. … If one of them is really high-performance … SSD and another one is built on 7200 RPM sata … and is much slower, again not a good fit for … storage DRS. … I want datastores that perform the same, … that have the same underlying features, … that are essentially interchangeable datastores, … that are as close to identical as they … can possibly be. … So I've got three datastores here and they are …
