Just curious for those using VMware if you present RDM's or utilize VMFS for your storage to your SQL Servers. Traditionally we have used RDM but as we are growing our Virtual SQL environment, this is presenting challenges with the number of host and guest and wanting to utilize DRS (vmotion). Just wanting to get a feel from others out there with a bit more experience than myself. Since we utilize and enterprise SAN and all disk basically come from the same pool or are carved out of the same array's then as long as my throughput and IOPs are consistent I don't see a big problem.So guys and gal's, PRO's and CON's. Success and horror stories, let them rip.
