A Practical Guide to Virtual Disks as Used by VMware – Part 1 Intro

Time for a new series! Are you as excited and motivated as I am? In this series we’ll cover the Tops and Bottoms of VMware disk types. What are they, how do you make them, what are the benefits and drawbacks, and when would you use them. A lot to cover? Sure IS, but that is why it’s a series. I’ll try to get these out once a week as time permits. Seems simple enough right? It is really. There are five basic food groups when it comes to VMware ESX 3.5.x and disk types:

  • Zeroed Thick
  • Eager Zeroed Thick
  • Thick
  • Thin
  • Raw

Thats it really. We’ll get into the specifics of each one of these in their own post in the series. The other 6 parts of this series will explain each of these in detail.
