we recently purchased a new equalogic ISCSI SAN. we plan to use it for our vmware infra which our 7 hosts are using about 7TB spread over their local storage.

my question is we would like to connect our 7 hosts (approx 70 vm's) to the san but are unsure if it is better to create 1 big volume lets say 12TB with one datastore on it or multiple smaller volumes with multiple datastores.

help is appreciated
