By default, the SoftNAS Cloud® VM (on VMware vSphere) ships with the default E1000 virtual NIC adapter and VMware defaults to MTU 1500.
A dedicated VLAN for storage traffic is recommended. For VMware, refer to the Performance Tuning for VMware vSphere section for details.
To increase performance throughput and resiliency, use of iSCSI multipathing is recommended by VMware and other vendors.
