We run a Cloud & sometime we have customers who migrate their DB servers
to our Cloud using USB 2 / 3 portable HDDs but for 300-500GB, it takes
I suppose the laptop's USB2 port is the bottleneck beside the various overheads
from the sysadmin's LAN (where laptop connects to ) to the actual Prod VMs.
Don't have that much time to do uploading. Will it be any faster using a USB 3
portable drive (possibly the drive is a SSD inside) that connects directly to
the ESXi host's USB port?
What's HP Proliant G7 & G8's USB port type? USB3 or USB2 ?
Or is it faster that the tenant/customer use a Gbit NAS & connect a cross-cable
direct to the ESXi host to do upload? Is this against any security guideline?
Pls provide solutions that is as fast as possible without infringing infrastructure
security good practices.
