EMC VNX – Thin vs Thick LUNs – screencast

I have created about ~30 minutes screencast about Thin Provisioning.

In this video I’m creating seperate Storage Pools for Thin and Thick LUNs. Later on I will provision storage, allocate it to windows host and put some example data on it to check the Storage Pool utilization. Later on I explain what is over-provisioning – also on example.

Enjoy the video!

  1. In creating your screencasts, do you use physical VNX? Or are you using a virtual VNX? I’m looking for a vVNX that closely matches the VNX 5300 with block software 5.32 and Unisphere 1.2.30. The VNX 5400 you present in your screencast seems to match what I’m looking for.

    Do you have any tips on where I could find such an appliance?

    EMC makes available a vVNX, but it has a newer Unisphere interface.

    Thank you so much for the screencasts.
