    Hyper-V 3.0 makes 16 TB VM diskfiles, when can ESX do it?

    HenrikElm Expert

      I just noticed that Hyper-V 3.0 (Included in Windows 8) can create VHD:s up to and over 16 TB in size. Each volume that is, as in a single VMs NTFS volume. In ESX you can only create a 2 TB volume and that is starting to feel a bit small.

       

      Win8 is still prebeta, I know, but it kinda shows the intent and is actually possible today. I hope ESX will catch up easily and that there is not any built in problems in the VMDK spec preventing it to expand beyond 2 TB?
