A closer look at EBS-backed vSAN

A closer look at EBS-backed vSAN

At VMworld 2018, we announced an initiative to use EBS, Amazon Elastic Block Store, for vSAN storage. At present vSAN is configured using the current EC2 i3 configurations, which run ESXi on bare-metal. I have seen these referred to as i3p, but my understanding is that they correlate to the i3.metal instances as shown here.

PowerCLI is used to disable Witness Traffic Separation, and the vSphere 6.7 U1 Cluster Quickstart is used to add a 3rd host to the cluster. The PowerCLI command used to untag 'witness' traffic is: Get-Cluster -Name CLUSTERNAME | Get-VMHost | Get-EsxCli -v2 | % { $_.vsan.network.remove.Invoke(@{interfacename='vmk0'})}
