I am currently in the Process of virtualizing my infrastructure setting up a SAN As well as a complete replica as a DR site. I have purchased the following Equipment (plus all other needed equipment)
DL360 Gen9 x4 (2 for production and 2 for DR site)
HPE MSA 2050 x2 (1 for production and 1 for DR site)
I have VSphere 6.7 ESXi installed on the DL360's.
My first question is should I install the VM's on the Local drives or should I put them on the SAN?
Secondly, in the past I have put VCenter on its own server. With the addition of the SAN should I keep VCenter on a separate server, a VM on the Host or a VM on the SAN? I have never setup a SAN before so this portion is new to me.
Lastly, how will replication and fail-over between the Production and DR site be affected by where install the VM's
