Designing the storage to go along with your virtual environment? In this tip, Anil Desai explains a variety of ways to avoid storage (I/O) bottlenecks. In his analysis, Desai covers all the bases: analyzing a virtual environment’s I/O characteristics, designing RAID configurations and fault tolerance and, finally, planning for host and guest-level backup.

Meanwhile, over at SearchVMware.com, Scott Lowe regales us with a great tip on the ins and outs of VST, EST and VGT VLAN tags in VMware ESX. He explains why VST tags are usually your best choice but also describes cases where EST and VGT might be more appropriate. The Internet is awash in virtualization content, but IMHO, this tip really exemplifies why TechTarget launched SearchVMware.com: to provide VMware administrators with the nitty-gritty technical information they need to properly configure their systems. I hope it’s helpful to you.

Editors’ note: Virtualization Log is a regular feature of the Server Virtualization Blog, where we recap the news, tips and columns that were recently published on SearchServerVirtualization.com and sister TechTarget publications.
