Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Dedicated Resources: Dedicate Pods, Clusters, Hosts to a domain
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 06:58:50 GMT
Would dedicating a pod/cluster to a domain also not require dedicating the
primary storage. This is because it would appear that if
performance/security is the primary reason for dedicating resources, then
that would also be true for primary storage. Also Would it be not be better
to specify cluster as the last level of granularity for resource that can
be dedicated to a domain rather than a host? So cases where a single host
needs to be dedicated to a domain, it would equate to a cluster with a
single host.


Thanks
Saurav
