What needs improvement?

A more graphical reporting of the health of vSAN.

For how long have I used the 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.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We had no issues during deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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.

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

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.

What about the implementation team?

I implemented it myself.

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

I pay for my consumption with VMware vCan Program.

What other advice do I have?

Double check the hardware compatibility lists with the builder.
