A brand new white paper was just published. This white paper was written by Lee Dilworth, Ken Werneburg, Frank Denneman, Stuart Hardman and I. It is a white paper on vSphere Metro Storage Cluster solutions and specifically looks at things from a VMware perspective. Enjoy!

  • VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (VMware vMSC) is a new configuration within the VMware Hardware Compatibility List. This type of configuration is commonly referred to as a stretched storage cluster or metro storage cluster. It is implemented in environments where disaster/downtime avoidance is a key requirement. This case study was developed to provide additional insight and information regarding operation of a VMware vMSC infrastructure in conjunction with VMware vSphere. This paper will explain how vSphere handles specific failure scenarios and will discuss various design considerations and operational procedures.http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/10299

I am aiming to also have the kindle/epub version up soon and will let you know when they are released!
