Thick LUNS and THIN VMDKs
This is how this new environment ive just acquired last month has all their storage setup.
They are using all THICK LUNS at the Array/Block level, and THIN at the VMware level.
Is this a good idea? best practices?
I would like to hear your thoughts
Here is our SAN and VMware environment details:
SAN = all Fibre chanel EMC Unity550F's All Flash SAS Flash 4
VMware= Vcenter 6.5 10000 Build 6816762
Esxi hosts = 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, and 6.5
The EMC Unity550F's have capability profiles for VVols but we are not using them.
