VMware vSAN Review

Good productivity, data storage capabilities, and technical support

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and VMware vSAN is one of the products that we implement for our clients.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are productivity and data storage.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with VMware vSAN for between one and two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

vSAN is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable product.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not dealt with them directly but my understanding is that they have good technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are trying to support Nutanix, so I have some experience with it.

The suitability of one solution over the other depends on the use case.

How was the initial setup?

As a system architect, I have not deployed it myself.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of vSAN could be lower.

The licensing fees are paid quarterly.

What other advice do I have?

My advice when it comes to products like vSAN or Nutanix is that these are products for new customers. Existing customers have a classic architecture and they have no reason to implement a hyper-converged infrastructure.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
