VMware vSphere use cases
This chapter provides a practical approach on how to implement the IBM Real-time Compression Appliance when using VMware with NFS datastores. We start by describing the setup of our test environment and then continue with the implementation steps.
17.1 Test environment setup
To show you how to implement the IBM Real-time Compression Appliance we used a simple VMware implementation. As shown in Figure 17-1
, we use one host connected to a NFS volume that it uses as a datastore. We created six virtual machines, all running ...
