The deployment specification for NFS supplemental storage in VMware Cloud Foundation includes determining the physical storage infrastructure required for using NFS as supplemental storage for the management domain.
Sizing NFS Storage Platform Design for the Management Domain You size the NFS datastores according to the requirements for your organization. You take into account required storage for the virtual machines and backups to be stored.
NFS Physical Design When you design the physical NFS configuration, consider disk type and size, networking between the storage and the ESXi hosts, and volumes according to the data you are going to store.
Storage I/O Control for the Management Domain By using VMware vSphere Storage I/O Control, you can prioritize cluster-wide storage I/O for management workloads on the supplemental NFS storage in the management domain of VMware Cloud Foundation. As a result, workload consolidation is better and you can reduce extra costs associated with over-provisioning.
