Hey, I am new to VMware as I am working to modernize my hosting. We have a few boxes and are looking to convert from our handful of isolated ESXi hosts (v6.7) to a more dynamic vCenter managed cluster as it grows.
One of my devs is helping architect the phased apporach and told me that the new hardware we will move to shouldn’t require RAID 10 as it vSAN would manage that and be just as good. I am a bit afraid to have to go to our customers and tell them we are using anything other than RAID 10.
How recommended is it to use just vSAN OR vSAN with RAID 10? I was being told that vSAN manages the RAID 0 and the RAID 1 parts of it so I shouldnt worry. Given that its my job to worry, I am am still worrying about how this will handle down events and redundency.
Also, I did see people talking about this online, but all the questions around it are 5 years old and I want to get a fresh perspective.
