Virtual Machine Setup on Sunlight Platform
Virtual Machine for Maximum Storage performance
Create two datastores
Two datastores are created from two physical NVMe drives on the same Compute Node.
Create a resource group
A resource group consists of the two datastores created in the last step and at least 16 CPU cores with CPU Pinning enabled.
Create an instance flavor
An instance flavor consists of 16 cores, 64 GB memory, one root storage device and two ephemeral storage devices.
Download the instance template
The instance template contains the operating system for your virtual machine.
Create a virtual machine instance
A virtual machine instance is created within the pre-created resource group and with two ephemeral virtual disks from two difference datastores.
