VMware vSAN Review

We have three hosts in a single cluster that provides us centralized storage with High Availability, although the hardware compatibility list should be expanded.

  • It's very simple to use.
  • It work on commoditized hardware.

It's lowered our storage costs while still maintaining High Availability and with easy installation.

Expand the hardware compatibility list – it's pretty short. Definitely also the diagnostic and monitoring could be improved. That stuff is still very new.

Unsure – all I know is what I read, if it does what it says it does I'm very impressed.

Very good – quality support.

Initial Setup

We have three hosts in a cluster, and it was surprisingly easy.
