Using NFS to support your virtual server environment provides advantages for IT managers in terms of cost and complexity. But there are disadvantages, such as the lack of support for multi-pathing and the fact that the vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) don’t support NFS.

In this interview transcript, VMware expert Eric Siebert discusses the best way to use NFS for virtual server environments. Discover the benefits and complications that can arise when implementing network-attached storage (NAS) in your virtual server platform, the outlook on VAAIs, lack of support for NFS, how NFS performance compares with that of iSCSI and Fibre Channel, and how to set up an NFS device to get the best performance from it.
