Time for a new series! Are you as excited and motivated as I am? In this series weâ€™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 itâ€™s a series. Iâ€™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
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.
