There’s an old saying, “All roads lead to Rome,” that has special meaning with VMware vSphere. With virtualization, “All roads lead to storage.” You can build highly available/DRS clusters, failover clusters, redundant networking, and converged everything, but without 100% storage uptime, your entire virtual environment will fail.
This reliance on perfect storage can mean loads of expensive hardware. But is it possible to build up a highly available shared storage for vSphere with just two servers? In this session, Greg Shields of Pluralsight and Max Kolomyeytsev of StarWind Software discuss how to create mission-critical shared storage for vSphere supporting RAM caching, log-structuring and data deduplication.
