If external hosts are configured and connected to the PowerStore T appliance on a storage area network (SAN), it is recommended to configure multiple connections of the same protocol between the hosts and the appliance to ensure redundancy and to optimize performance. PowerStore supports several protocols, including Fibre Channel, iSCSI, NVMe/FC, or NVMe/TCP.
PowerStore can also present vVol based storage containers to external ESXi hosts using Fibre Channel, iSCSI, or NVMe protocols. Support of storage containers with the NVMe protocol was introduced in PowerStoreOS 3.0. However, you must manually register the VASA provider and mount the storage containers manually on the external ESXi hosts.
It is important to note that the NVMe protocols are relatively new to Linux, and therefore, only the latest operating system versions support these protocols. Additionally, some vendors may consider them to be technology previews or beta features, making them unsuitable for use in a production environment. Check with your operating system vendor to confirm the latest support status of this feature before deploying it in your environment.
