I've read lots of write up on the 'net on the whole "iSCSI vs NFS" topic. It appears that most people prefer NFS, but any test I've found dealt with transfer of large files, when I have the opposite problem. As I see it, I have three ways I can set this up:
- Create an iSCSI LUN, and put the VMDK there
Create an NFS storage object, and put the VMDK there
Mount a shared Synology folder directly withing the Linux VM
Which is likely to perform best? I have no SSD caching, and right now that is not an option.
