Please see my other post for more info (f.e. http://mobile.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_28345256.html
I have one esxi now which has 3 ssd s of 50 gb, 2 laptop disks,1 ssd of 120gb and 3 sata disks (ready for zfs). I have also 3 ssd of 120 gb "on the Side". I could make this zfs but why not a windows 2012 r2 core with nfs share: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324089
Everything is local anyhow, I d make the ssds in raid, sata in raid via win 2012 then run my vm s on these nfs shares ...?
