comment HP storage arrays - multiple channels?
@kend I see the spec. I'm mobile now. There's a lot to say, but I'll have to write later. That 120GB SSD is SATA, correct?

comment HP storage arrays - multiple channels?
All of the current HP external array enclosures support SAS multipath. This requires dual-ported drives and an HBA with two SAS SFF-8088 ports. HP refers to it as "dual-domain".

comment HP storage arrays - multiple channels?
Information I need: server model and generation, what type of smart array controllers are involved, which operating systems, and how much raw/usable disk capacity do you need? What is the current drive setup, and why do you think it's a bottleneck?

comment S.M.A.R.T data from disks behind LSI MegaRAID Controller in ESXi 5.1
@user1189899 Why? Shouldn't you just care if the drive is good or bad? ESXi is not a general purpose operating system.

@TheFoxx Look at this screenshot from an Essentials setup. It's no longer an issue. Also see the table posted in my answer.

What specific CPU models do you have?

@TheFoxx Marketshare. I don't know anyone who uses Oracle Virtualization. I know lots of organizations who use VMware. Mindshare and marketshare count for something.

comment Installing vmware/xenserver on a linux operating system?
@TheFoxx The licenses can be split and divided. You have a maximum of three hosts that can be managed under that license. That could be a quad-socket machine and two single-socket systems, or three dual-sockets systems. This is documented and supported, as I do the same on some systems.

You can divide the license however you wish. Essentials provides 6 physical CPU socket's worth of licensing. Four of them can be applied to one four-socket host, or you can use six single-socket hosts. It all works.
