Choosing VMware SIOC with Storage Auto Tiering – VCDX Way

Yesterday I wrote a post regarding the IOps, Disk Size, CPU and Memory calculation for the vCOPs SizingĀ and what would be the impact of it when you submit it for your VCDX defense. Today I will talk about choosing SIOC Continue reading Choosing VMware SIOC with Storage Auto Tiering – VCDX Way

Academic Research – Controlling Host Q-Depth based on Storage Fan-Out Ratio & Hosts Throughput Aggregation

Fan-out ratio is something that “generally” a vSphere Admin does not care about at all. So, lets take a look at what is Fan-Out ratio. The fan-out ratio is the number of hosts connected to a port on a SAN Continue reading Academic Research – Controlling Host Q-Depth based on Storage Fan-Out Ratio & Hosts Throughput Aggregation

SIOC Enhancement – Automatic Latency Threshold Computation

There are new automatic latency threshold computations in SIOC. The latency thresholds for the SIOC can now be automatically set using the injector based models. The benefit of this is that SIOC now figures out the best threshold for a Continue reading SIOC Enhancement – Automatic Latency Threshold Computation
