So when you say dynamic storage, are you just referring to storage that can grow as your requirements

If so, there are many options. I can't speak for VMware, but I can for KVM:

Ceph (using RBD)
Various SANs via either a mount point or CLVM clustering

Subject: Dynamic Primary Storage for VMware and KVM

Hi all,

I searched through the documentation to find some more information about how to provide dynamic
primary storage for VMware vspehere 5.5 and KVM, but didn’t found a good hint.

Can somebody tell me how I can setup dynamic primary storage for vmware and kvm and what kind
of storage system is needed?
If I understood it right SolidFire is a good candidate for it, but are there any other storage
systems which do support this feature or is it even possible to use it with any kind of nfs

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards
