ESXI 5.1 and extents

I know the limitations as far as extents go with VMware esxi 5.1 but my question is, is there any performance issues with using extents to make a datastore

No, just make sure you span extents across LUNs, and update your documentation so you know which extents are on which LUNs.

If you lose a single LUN, the datastore will be lost.
