Customize storage controllers


Recommended Posts


I think it depends on the situation. Some of the controllers might not be supported by your OS, hardware version or device type. Plus, you will need additional controllers for the disk drives. So really, sometimes it is a necessity more than anything.

Hi, @heyho!

Selecting a suitable storage controller is crucial for good VM performance. There are several types of controllers: IDE, AHCI SATA, NVM Express (NVMe) and SCSI. SCSI storage controllers have four sub-types:

  • BusLogic Parallel
  • LSI Logic SAS
  • LSI Logic Parallel
  • VMware Paravirtual SCSI

Each of the storage controllers has its advantages and disadvantages. You can dive deeper into the differences through our blog post https://www.nakivo.com/blog/scsi-controller-and-other-vmware-controller-types/
