Support for 4Kn sector size HDD drives natively for static HVs
Currently, OnApp does not support 4Kn sector size HDD drives for Static Hypervisors, and we need to do a workaround for OnApp to use 4Kn sector size drives.
This workaround is to have the OS detect the drive via local ISCSI.
This has major drawbacks that affect production systems which are
1. Degrades IOPS
2. ISCSI links get overloaded too often causing the Hypervisor to hang all virtual machines, dropping the storage links.
3. IO is very expensive, this method degrades it more
Hope OnApp supports this so we can let go of using ISCSI for local storage just to have OnApp see the logical volumes as this affects the production systems
