Storage Troubleshooting in a 3-2-1 Hardware Stack
As the storage market transitions to all-flash, hybrid array storage providers strategically work to accelerate performance and utilization. In doing so, it becomes more difficult to categorize hot data, dynamic and agile storage capacities, and other new age concepts. Today we will be following up on a previous blog where we investigated network troubleshooting in a 3-2-1 hardware stack. As a reminder, the term “3-2-1” refers to a redundant architecture of 3 servers, 2 switches, and 1 storage array, or some derivative of that nature (2-2-1, etc). We will then dive into vRealize Operations to determine the root cause of an issue within a 3-2-1 stack at the storage layer and expand on using robust management console as a data aggregator.
