I/O Compatibility Guide
VMware ESX software delivers high performance I/O for PCI based SCSI, RAID, Fibre Channel, and Ethernet controllers. To achieve high performance, these devices are
accessed directly through device drivers in the ESX host, and not through a host operating system, as with VMware Workstation and VMware Server products.
Support for I/O devices listed in this document is specific to device compatibility with the VMware ESX versions listed in the corresponding tables. This does not imply a
statement of support for adding a device to any certified system. System vendors determine device compatibility with a given system. Please refer to the compatibility list provided
by the system vendor before adding a certified device to a certified system.
NOTE: IDE RAID and SATA RAID are not supported for the VMFS file system.
NOTE: You cannot simultaneously run devices using the mptscsi driver and ones using the mptscsi_2xx driver.
NOTE: You cannot simultaneously run devices using the aacraid driver and ones using the aacraid_esx30 driver.
NOTE: You cannot simultaneously run devices using the megaraid2 driver and ones using the megaraid_sas driver.
If you are having a technical issue with 3rd party HW/SW and it is not found on this list, please refer to our 3rd Party HW/SW support policy at http://www.vmware.com/support/
policies/ThirdParty.html.
Linux Driver Compatibility
While ESX software itself is not derived from Linux, it includes a Linux compatibility module to allow Linux storage and networking drivers to be adapted and
recompiled for ESX hosts. This enables VMware and VMware partners to more easily support a wide range of high performance devices and eases the driver
porting effort on the storage and networking device vendors. VMware or VMware partners typically modifies these drivers for one or more of the following reasons:
* To make the driver compatible with the ESX host
* To tune the driver for performance
* To add I/O resource governing or QoS support to the driver
* To fix generic bugs in the driver
It is not possible to directly load existing, pre compiled, Linux device driver binaries onto an ESX host.
