VMware Virtual SAN™ is the industry leader in hyper-converged software-defined storage for virtual environments.

Radically Simple Storage

Virtual SAN is the first policy-driven storage product designed for vSphere environments that simplifies and streamlines storage provisioning and management.
Using VM-level storage policies, Virtual SAN automatically and dynamically matches requirements with underlying storage resources. With Virtual SAN, many manual storage tasks are automated - delivering a more efficient and cost-effective operational model.

Lowers TCO by up to 50%

Virtual SAN allows you to granularly scale-up or scale-out your storage environment giving you the flexibility to grow your storage environment without costly overprovisioning. Virtual SAN is hardware- agnostic and its simple, easy-to-use design increases operational efficiency, saving you both time and money.

High Performance

Virtual SAN enables read/write caching using server-side flash, optimizing the I/O data path to deliver better performance than a virtual appliance or an external device.





Software-Defined Storage for vSphere

Virtual SAN is the software-defined storage solution for the software-defined datacenter. Virtual SAN’s hypervisor-converged architecture enables storage and compute to run in the same physical host with minimal overhead; management is made simple through seamless integration with the vSphere Web Client and the entire VMware stack.
