VMware

When cloning a thick provisioned VM from one host to another across the WAN, is the transfer rate dependent on the provisioned size of the disk, or the size of the data on the disk?

Basically one of the disks is thick provisioned at 350GB but is only half full and so I’m trying to determine transfer time estimates but I’m not sure how it regards that data during a clone procedure.

Thanks.

  1. You will transfer the full provisioned size, thats the point of thick it allocates all space from the start
