    Fault Tolerance/vMotion

    Dryv Enthusiast

      Hi All,

       

      I have inherited a cluster of ESXi servers running on rack mount servers. These servers have plenty of network adapters free in them (1Gb NICs).

       

      If I was to do some re-arranging of the NICs and introduce FT (for a couple of critical VMs) could I:

       

      - Dedicate a 1Gb NIC for vMotion

      - Dedicate a 1Gb NIC for Fault Tolerance

       

      What I'm trying to get at is, is 1Gb NICs for each of these traffic types considered reasonable? I dont have 10Gb NICs to play with.
