Advantage of installing ESXi on a USB Flash Drive over Local Disks ?
Posted on 2013-12-19
In my first installation of VMWare, I installed ESXi on my 4GB Flash Drive and I keep that USB on the VMware box all the time.
That said I started thinking, as I prepare to set up another VMWare box, if it is really necessary to create ESXi on the flash drive ... it comes with the hassle to keep a duplicate (which I have not done yet). Since I am doing RAID 1 on two 4TB HDs, space is not an issue and redundancy is already there. So I wonder now if I should install ESX on the local hard drive.
