The more visible example is the performance seen by the user in my DaaS product.
Room for Improvement:
A more graphical reporting of the health of vSAN.
Use of Solution:
I've been using it for six months to manage two clusters of four servers. One with vSphere ESX 5.5 with 30 ISCSi network storage, and one with vSphere ESX 6.0 with 40 vSAN six storage.
We had no issues during deployment.
For the moment, I have only one issue. One disk of a server is not seen by the system. I have opened this issue with Dell, but it’s not a hardware problem. I have to reboot the server but the problem persist.
We have had no issues scaling is to our needs.
Previously, I used a traditional ISCSi network with SAN.
It's simple because I followed their procedures. It only took me a week to see results.
I implemented it myself.
Cost and Licensing Advice:
I pay for my consumption with VMware vCan Program.
Double check the hardware compatibility lists with the builder.
Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: I’m using my own vCloud Air Network Program because I’m resseller of a Daas Solution.
