compress vmdk's

Jump to solution

quick question, not sure if this is even the correct forum....

I am looking at getting a new SAN that has native 3 to 1 compression.

If I attach that to Vmware and migrate vm's to it, would it compress the vm's?

It'll do some compression. The "3-to-1" is not a promise, so don't count on it.

outstanding, thank you.

I know somethings compress better than others.    text file versus video files (as an example)

just didn't know about vm's

again, thank you
