Fastest setup using UNRAID as a Datastore for ESXi

1 post in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I have ESXi 6.7 and recently ran into an issue with a Datastore after a power outage.  I would like to start moving my datastores to UNRAID to have some level of safety.  My current Datastores are individual disks on the ESXi server (yes, not safe, finding that out).


What is the fastest connection I can have to ensure the datastore is:

  1.  Always available
  2.  Not slow


I have a Netgear ReadyNAS and a Synology Diskstation both with Datastores setup (iSCSI) on them and they are pretty slow and also they sometimes just don't show up until I reboot ESXi once or twice :(


My network is fairly robust.  I have Cat5e with Unifi switches and very small cable runs.  


Thanks in advance!
