Lesson 5. Working with VMFS Data Stores This lesson discusses VMFS data stores. Participants in this lesson will learn how to:
- Create a VMFS data store
- Increase the size of a VMFS data store
- Delete a VMFS data store
When creating a data store, the first thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the capability of the data store. Data stores are optimized for storing and accessing large files and have a maximum storage of 64TB (terabytes). VMFS is designed for virtual machine operated environments. You can add storage and select the type used. This lesson offers participants step-by-step instructions in a lab-base format to create VMFS data stores.
