Datastores


Q. What is a datastore?

A datastore is a collection of physical drives with a redundancy and overcommit policy applied. All the data that is stored on the system is thin provisioned so you can overcommit the available physical storage up to any amount. Note that any overcommitment of storage comes with an associated risk that the system may run out of physical storage if excessive data is stored on the disks. In order to present local storage drives to the server workloads as a unified storage layer, you must select available drives and create a distributed ‘Datastore’ across them.
