What's the caveats in using VMFS extends on top of RAID-5 ?
I've got Dell Server with 6x SATA 450 GB HDD configured with RAID-5
so approximately the total capacity is (6x450)-450 = 2.25 TB
for the above datastore I want to use as one single datastore by using multiple extends, can anyone suggest me is there any caveats or performance penalty in using one large datastore on top of RAID-5 disks ?
