    Maximum size of VMDK file for vSphere & provision of a 1TB VM ?

    TonyJK Expert

      From the what's new feature, I find that we can assign 256GB RAM and 8 vCPU to a VM for vSphere. However, we would like to know the maximum size of VMDK file ? Is it still 256GB ?








      The Server Administrator asks for providing him a File Server of size around 1TB. Would it be a good idea to use the precious SAN for it ? Would it be better to use a standalone physical machine or use the internal SCSI HD (VMFS) of one of the ESX Hosts in the cluster ?
