Select the datastore in which to store the virtual machine configuration files and all of the virtual disks. Each datastore might have a different size, speed, availability, and other properties.


  1. On the Select storage page, choose the type of storage for the virtual machine.
    • Click the Standard button to save all the virtual machine disks and configuration files on a standard datastore.
    • Click the Persistent Memory button to save the virtual machine hard disks on the host-local PMem datastore.
  2. Choose a datastore from the list.
    Important: The configuration files cannot be stored on a PMem datastore. If you choose to use PMem, you must select a regular datastore for the configuration files of the virtual machine.
  3. Click Next.
