Vmware Physical Network and Storage Connectivity
Posted on 2014-03-29
in most of Vmware environments when they bring an ESX host to the network, they use Network and storage redundancy.
I mean they connect 2 fiber channel adapters from ESX host to 2 separate fiber Channel Network Switches
and they connect 2 finder channel adapters from ESX host to 2 separate fiber channel Storage Switches.
I would like to know what is the best practice for Network and Storage physical connection while taking into account the need to separate Management Network (Which I guess is the traffic that goes between Vcenter and ESX hosts), vMotion, sVmotion, and Management traffic ( I guess it is for VMHA) and VM Network I guess (traffic between Virtual Machines).
