So we have about 10 File shares at our company totaling about 2.5 TB.
In order to allow us to vMotion more efficiently and restore from backups quicker I was thinking about creating a virtual hard drive in VMWare for each of the shares individually. Is this a OK practice? We currently have problems vMotioning hard disks due to the size and capability of our storage medium.
Please no comments on improving hardware, management is not interested in spending any money.
This is strictly a "is this OK" question I already know it will work. If someone has a better idea to "distribute" the data across multiple drives I am open to suggestions. The file migrations will be done with a scripted robocopy. After I will recreate the shares by hand. Thank you!
