Best new feature of vSphere Update 1: PVSCSI Boot

Filed under: esx, vmware, vSphere — ermac318 @ 12:03 pm

So a while back I made a post about some new best practices for vSphere based on some new features that were available. One of the ugly points at the time was that while the new PVSCSI controller was awesome, you could only use it for additional disks.

Well I’m thankful to report that as of vSphere Update 1, you can boot from a PVSCSI controller so there shouldn’t be a necessity to add a second controller just when you want to take advantage of this new IO device.

Coincidentally, one of the other points in that article was about Thin Provisioning, but a recent whitepaper from VMware has pretty much alleviated all my fears on that front.
