Data Store Zones Settings

Data store zones can be used to create different tiers of service – for example, by setting up different zones for ordinary and high-performance SANs in the cloud. Zones can also be used to create private clouds for specific users.

Data store zones have types which are inherited by the data stores in the zone. Later data stores can be attached to a compute resource/compute zone of the same type. Data stores can be moved from one data store zone to another, but the zones should be of the same type. For more information refer to Zone Types. The table below demonstrates the available data store zone types for different data stores:
