VMware vSAN Review

We now have the ability to virtualize across multiple data centers and to consolidate more workloads on different types of storage.


How has it helped my organization?

Previously, we couldn’t consolidate more workloads on different types of storage. Now with VSAN, we have the ability to virtualize across multiple data centers.

What needs improvement?

It's currently doing everything we've ask of it and it meets all our needs right now. To be honest, I don’t think too much about the future of the product or what we might need it to do as our requirements change.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's got good stability - 10/10.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's got good scalability - 10/10.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

N/A

Technical Support:

They are good – the response time is quick. You pay for it, but they are good.

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

No previous solution was used.

How was the initial setup?

It was simple and straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We've implemented it both on our own and with a vendor team, and it's straightforward with both.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were looked, but peer reviews are important. My peer reviews are usually on social media channels, but it's important.

Product knowledge is the most important criteria we look for when selecting a vendor.

What other advice do I have?

Try it and evaluate it – it's not a fit for every company, but you should at least do an evaluation to see if it is a fit.
