You can configure a compatible FC storage array which can be configured to supply a single VMFS data store or multiple data stores to a VxRail dynamic cluster.
- Verify that the storage array in your data center to support the dynamic cluster is supported with VxRail. See the VxRail E-Lab Navigator to verify compatibility.
- Verify you have sufficient free capacity on the storage array. A VxRail dynamic cluster requires a VMFS device with a minimum of 800 GB to support workload and applications.
- At the time of ordering, include enough compatible FC adapter cards. You should have two FC adapter cards per node for redundancy, although a single dual-port adapter card can be used.
- Verify that you have sufficient open ports on your FC switches to accommodate the connections required from each VxRail node.
