vRealize Operations Management Thin vs Thick Provisioning for a VOA 30 day eval

  vRealize Operations Management Thin provisioning vs Thick provisioning title says it all is there a resource that anyone can point me to that shows why Thick is best practice, because I have a potential client who cannot use the Thick provisioning due to storage restraints for the 30 day evaluation using the VOA.

Thick is best practice due to less administrative and monitoring efforts as compared to thin. There are no technical constraints though.

The main advantages of Thick-provisioning are:

   -- Hard Drive allocation is more likely to use contiguous blocks, so less fragmentation on the physical platters

   -- Physical disk space is allocated immediately, so you will not fall into the trap of over-provisioning.
