4K device targets have been shipping for years, and it's increasing impact to not have support. There is still only support for locally attached 4Kn SAS/SATA spinning disks. When will we get support for 4K / 4Kn targets over other interfaces? eg FC, iSCSI, NVMeOF, iSER, etc?
ref: vSphere 7.0 Storage Guide still shows the same limitations that we had around ~6.4 IIRC...
When you use 4Kn devices, the following considerations apply:
- ESXi supports only local 4Kn SAS and SATA HDDs
- ESXi does not support 4Kn SSD and NVMe devices, or 4Kn devices as RDMs
