  1. Another great show, bur I have to say for once I disagree with Chris.

  3. For VMs we see the same performance with iSCSI and NFS on ESX, with NFS being far simpler to deploy and manage, especially as you scale. The performance issues you've seen are likely due to a poor NFS implementation rather than issues with the protocol.

  5. VMware did testing on this. http://www.vmware.com/files/pdf/perf_vsphere_storage_protocols.pdf
  6. While dated you see NFS and iSCSI are on par for performance.
