Maximum network delay for ESXI host and NAS.

Jump to solution

Hi everybody,

Is there any upper limit imposed by VM ware for Network delay between ESXI host and NAS?

I am wondering if anyone of you has deployed NAS at one geographical location while ESXI hosts( which are using NAS) are located at other geographical locations with round trip delay of 230msec? If yes, any issue?

Thanks and have a good night!!

No, this is not possible. This would severely hurt your application performance, to the point where you will have all users of the application shouting at you. If you want to increase availability, consider using async replication and SRM for orchestration. This will provide you the ability to failover VMs after a failure between the locations.

Let me make a general statement which should answer all of your questions you've posted recently:

 

What you're trying to do, you really shouldn't be trying to do. If you do, it'll be somewhere between absolutely horrible performance/experience and not working at all.
