DRS Affinity Rules for VMware vSphere Storage Appliance


Based on a recent customer inquiry with regards to the use of DRS Affinity rules with vSphere Storage Appliance (VSA) 5.1 environments I wanted to shared with everyone my response based on this topic. Understanding the functional capabilities of the vSphere features and how they integrate with the different solutions VMware provides it’s important and therefore I’ve decided to share this with the rest of the community. The question was based on a real customer scenario and fairly long as it involved other VMware products. I’ve condensed the question to the main concern below:

“Is it necessary to create DRS affinity rules to pin the vSphere Storage Appliance to each host in a VSA Cluster in order to prevent DRS from migrating the appliances to other ESXi hosts?”
