A new version of the VMFS Technical Overview and Best Practices white paper is now available. It has been updated for vSphere 5.x & VMFS5. You can download the paper from the VMware Technical Resources web site here. This new paper has been updated with VMFS5 limits, and also includes discussions around interoperability with newer vSphere features. It also has updated information around when and where to use Raw Device Mappings (RDMs), a feature which has seens it requirements change over the years.

The paper has been maintained by a number of technical marketing personnel over the years. We hope you find this latest version useful.
