Any other format besides ISO for a VM to read/mount a CD/DVD ?
Posted on 2014-01-22
We have lots of customers who creates their software / codes / data
onto CDs/DVDs as iso & pass to us (as we run cloud service), then we
mount those media via vCenter for VMs to read/copy them over.
Besides ISO, is there any other simpler way that VMs could read/
mount CDs/DVDs media?
Be it iso or any other format, is there freeware burner that could
encrypt the information on the media just in case the media got
lost/misplaced during transit? For USB HDD, we can create an
encrypted container (say using Truecrypt) but for CD/DVD media,
doubt this can be done as these media are write once only &
mounting/remounting/decrypting may not be permitted, right?
Or will a DVDRW (ie multi-rewritable DVD media) work with
