I am replacing a KVM server with a ESXi server. I just installed ESXi 5.5u1 and added a data store. The new server has 4 SSD drives in RAID 6 using hardware RAID. When I added the data store VMware says that the store is non-ssd.
Is this normal? Obviously VMware is seeing the virtual disk exposed by the RAID card not the SSD's themselves. Should VMware be told these are solid state disks for best performance? or should that just be left to the RAID card? I’m mostly worried about TRIM.
