UNMAP - Do IT!

Pretty sure my friend Cody Hosterman has talked about this until he turned blue in the face.  Just a point I want to quickly re-iterate here for the record. Run unmap on your vSphere Datastores.

Read this if you are running Pure Storage, but even if you run other arrays (especially all-flash) find a way to do UNMAP on a regular basis:

Additionally, start to learn the ins-n-outs of vSphere 6 and automatic unmap!

Speaking of In-n-out…. I want a double double before I start Whole 30.
