    vSAN or not for home vSphere cluster

    I'm still debaiting this decision. Luckily the new wave Xeon D boards aren't in stock yet which has given me some time. It's between 2-node ROBO vSAN with witness appliance or a single storage appliance to be shared amongst 2 ESXi hosts. I got an amazing deal on 6 x 400GB Hitachi USSL...

    Requirements for Gaming VM on ESXi 6

    Thanks for the information. I did Google this before posting but I got inconclusive information.

    vSAN or not for home vSphere cluster

    I'm specing out a home vSphere cluster for dual purposes. I want to learn more about VMware clustering yes but I also want to apply it as best I can to my home network needs as I find that's the best way to learn things. My goal is to have redundancy for all my "production" VMs/Dockers (Linux...
