Dec 4, 5. Do you already have an account? Any thoughts or recommendations? My initial plan was to pass the LSI through to freenas or something then share the storage back to esxi via nfs or isci. You would gain some capacity over your raid10 with a small performance hit, but it’s a trade off that, for run of the mill stuff, would be worth it imo I only ever use HW based raid when there is some obvious hardware limitation that requires disk control be handed off to something more able.

This article did not resolve my issue. Intel Architecture Day. I have this up and running with a few drives and 32gb ram given to freenas but after a little testing I started down the rsxi vs no sync and ZIL rabbit holes which has me wondering if I’m better off sticking with the Areca old school HW RAID.

ESXi 5 & Areca 1230 – Cannot see array
Oct 25, 4. Sorry for necro-posting but I figured someone else might run across this thread later.

My initial plan was to pass the LSI through to freenas or something then share the storage esxk to esxi via nfs or isci. Oct 23, 2. If you install the ESXi 5. Any idea why this might be happening? The issue I’m running into now is, I think, related to sync writes.
I have it running with sync off now while I copy the 8TB of data from the old server. The only thing zfs will do is storage for Esxi. Actions Copy To Clipboard copy external link to clipboard copied!
There is a ESXi 5. Create a VMFS datastore on one of those volumes. Request a Product Feature.
Areca HW Raid vs vt-d for ESXi
This automatically reboots the ESXi host. Hi Guys, Long time lurker first time poster: Forums Search Forums Recent Essi. Another option is to use the Areca-controller and the attached hard disks directly with ESXi 5. Any thoughts or recommendations?

I know that a consumer ssd isn’t ideal, but as you say, I should still be able to saturate a single gig connection. Make sure it’s something with real power loss protection, which will be critical to your Datastore in the event of sudden power loss, and over provision it like crazy.
With sync off I can easily saturate the gigabit connection.
