Deploy and Configure vCenter Server 5.1

Recommended Posts

Awesome video and simply well done!

my question to all is, does the NAS adapter work? or does it have to be an actual NAS unit? I found some NAS adapters that are cheap and basically they would connect any External USB hard drives to your LAN and configure it as a NAS to be shared over network. I haven't tried it yet but I am assuming it should work, right? anyone out there ever tried this method?

An Example of NAS adapters check this link: http://www.amazon.com/Addonics-NASU2-NAS-Adapter/dp/B001OC5J9U/ref=sr_1_fed1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1355690017&sr=8-1&keywords=usb+nas+adapter


and as you can see it's price is around $42.00 comparing to cheapest NAS or iSCSI for over $200. Some enclosures also are NAS you just have to add the drives.

Like mentioned i never tried it yet because I am still thinking about what is the right method to go. i don't care about speed or performance at this point because I am going to be doing this at home just to practice more and get more hands on.

Will have a vcenter, 2 hosts and maybe few vmware stations.


Please advise.

Thank you
