When I connect VM to the ABS

Is it seperate iSCSI sessions to all CVM (load balance I/O path) or
connect to only 1 CVM (1 active and another standby I/O path)

I wonder about performance between multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) vs. VG (by ABS) .

thank you

you will need to use data services IP as portal for your CVMit will connect to only 1 CVM (active standby mode)
does multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) mean non-Nutanix ?

Hi bezeddin

multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) mean "Add multiple vDisk to VMs" (Nutanix System)

Thank you

in abs vdisk can be referred as LUN (old way)you can have multiple vdisks per VG (up to 32)
how would you compare multiple vdisks to VM running on Nutanix vs VM running on other physical utilizing ABS on Nutanix ?

This covers all of the semantics in detail: http://nutanixbible.com/#anchor-block-services-81

Specifically look at the 'Multi-Pathing' section
