No SAN For You
Step four is to create a storage volume name and capacity for the VM, and to tell it on which physical disk to live. As in other steps, green check marks appear when the data entered in the space is legal and within limits. A drop-down list of known physical storage is presented along with the free space on each. Although SANs are supported, the Stratus solution does not require them in order to provide high availability. Instead, the Avance software keeps data up to date on the server-attached storage systems of both machines of the fail-over pair.
