In this chapter, you learned how to design and optimize block-based and file-based shared storage. We now know how advanced vSphere features, such as SIOC, vFRC, and Storage DRS, can assist us in achieving greater I/O performance.
In the next chapter, we will focus on high-performance networking. You will learn how to optimize our networking design for more throughput. After this chapter, you will know how technologies such as Network I/O Control (NIOC) and TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO) can assist us in achieving this goal.
