Can anyone tell me if there is any difference with running SMSQL on either of these two formats? Items like instant restore (1DB per volume) verses streaming restores (multil DB in same volume) in SQL?
Looking at Virtual Guests from a VMware SRM standpoint, VMDK's are friendlier than RDMs. We are currently running our SQL guests on VMFS datastores with RDMs for compatibility with SRM. We would like to run our SQL guests on NFS datastores with VMDKs for the DB's but wanted to know if we would lose out on anything if so.
