hi team ,

i have setup 10 esxi servers with 1gb network. ( logically 5 guest servers from each host)
I have fiber SAN connected to all the hosts, backup library, backup server.
i am planning to switch over from 1Gb network to 100Mbps network due to heavy rental on DC.
Please let me know risks involved by moving 1Gb network to 100Mbps fast Ethernet.

2. vMotion is not recommended below 1GB.

3. Does not meet the VMware vSphere requirements.

Is this serious change from 1GBe to 100Mbps ?

Is this production ?
