VMware ESX alignment document for EMC Clariion & Symmetrix

by dave on February 18, 2009


For folks that were on today’s VMware Communities Roundtable live podcast, mention was made of partition alignment under VMFS & the storage array being used. To that end, here is EMC’s document on VMware ESX connectivity to EMC Symmetrix and CLARiiON storage which covers partition alignment.

    Thanks Dave,

    Just what I was looking for. I didn't think about the alignment on the SAN (Not a Storage Guy). Texwill mentioned that you really had to look at the whole picture from SAN, vmfs and VM for best performance. I started looking around the Lab EMC and sure enough there is an offset.
