    vVols and Volume Limits

      As both a storage and VM admin, vVols are very promising to me. I do see one major roadblock to fully utilizing them though: NimbleOS 3.x still has a volume limit of 1,024 according to the Adaptive Flash Administrator Guide. We currently have several hundred virtual machines and if each one creates just 3 volumes under vVols, We would definitely exceed this limit. Can anyone at Nimble say if/when this limit will be increased and by how much? Or is Nimble just expecting vVols to only be partially deployed, keeping most VMs on VMFS datastores?

       

      Thanks,
