A unified support structure is an important asset; manual upgrades should be automated

What is our primary use case?

The current customer for this solution is a service provider currently using private cloud and hoping to become a public cloud provider later on. vSAN starts its customers with private cloud to give them a taste of the technology. Later on they move to implementing public cloud. I'm a pre-sales consultant and we're a partner of Dell.

Pros and Cons

  • "No concerns regarding the footprint in the data center."
  • "Upgrades are carried out manually."

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest that if you don't have the hands-on experience to administer a solution like vSAN ReadyNode then you should consider other options. For example, VxRail is a bit more expensive, but if you don't have the basic knowledge required for vSan then VxRail is an internet solution that provides a much easier interface to manage and to administer. I would rate this solution a seven out of 10.

Moving to integrate with a hybrid cloud, but they need a better price structure

What is our primary use case?

I am a data center solutions architect that specifies the solution and then implements it for our customers. 90% of the time, it is deployed on their local data center and their objective is to go to the cloud. This is what they will do once their applications are brought up to speed.

Pros and Cons

  • "They are heading in the right direction and moving to integrate everything with a hybrid cloud, and moving workloads back and forth."
  • "Scalability is an area that could be improved. We are looking at a maximum of 32 nodes now in a cluster, but going to 64 or 128 would be a major advantage."

What other advice do I have?

One of the interesting things that are coming to the floor is augmented reality, but I haven't seen any related discussions. It's obvious that they are waiting for devices. Most people don't seem to understand that in order for augmented reality to become a viable entity for specific verticals, such as healthcare, manufacturing, or retail, you have to have a common database for all operational requirements. Then, you have to create extensions. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Excellent support, with a good set of management and administration tools

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the set of user tools that are available."
  • "Compatibility with other hardware nodes needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is a product I recommend. My advice to anybody who is considering it is just to go and get it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
