VMware vSAN Review

In a production environment, it increases provisioning, security and provides faster deployment.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are:

  • Automation
  • RecoverPoint for VMware
  • Self-healing capability

In a production environment, these features ramp up the provisioning, security and provides faster deployment.

What needs improvement?

There is not much improvement needed. If you work with the HC Platform, vSAN is not directly touched, i.e., once the HC appliance takes care of it.

I have worked with VxRail, which is a Hyper converged Platform, as it has vSAN embedded as well as it is fully automated the vSAN configuration.

As I did not work with the implementation, but the analyses of functionalities of VxRAIL, would be unfair tell how vSAN would be improved.


For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for nine months (but only for sales proposal, it has not been implemented, just technical sales information).

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any scalability issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Always when I was in need of any technical support, I was promptly answered by them.

How was the initial setup?

As I have worked with the HC Platform, the setup was very simple and easy.

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

For Latin America, the costs are very higher; even if you go deep on functionalities, but still it is sellable.

What other advice do I have?

Work hard on the sizing matters.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are a business partner.
