VMware workstation how to simulate SSD

Vmware vsphere environment, there are some features we need to have SSD disks to enable those features.(Vsan, host cache, etc..). But in a test environment its very difficult to use ssd disks because its very costly thing and we are using some virtualization software like vmware workstation.

But in a vmware workstation we can simulate ssd disks with esx host. Below are the steps for that.

  1. This is the virtual machine(esx), which will used to simulate SSD


  1. I want to simulate this 100GB disk as a SSD



  1. We have to edit vmx files


  1. We have to add below highlighted key in the vmx files. We should use correct disk id


  1. Now I can see that 100 GB disk as SSD.
