Enterprises are rapidly adopting vSAN-powered hyperconverged infrastructure to solve some of their biggest IT infrastructure challenges: increasing complexity, rising costs, and the accelerating pace of operations. vSAN adopters have seen the total cost of ownership for storage go down by 40% on average, and they are spending less time on storage operations. A recent Forrester study found that over five years, vSAN provided a 259% return on investment.
With vSAN 7, we are continuing to build on the robust features that make vSAN a high performing general-purpose infrastructure. vSAN 7 makes it easy for you to standardize on a single storage operational model with three new capabilities: integrated file services, enhanced cloud-native storage, and simpler lifecycle management. You can now unify block and file storage on hyperconverged infrastructure with a single control pane, which reduces costs and simplifies storage management. Cloud-native applications also benefit from these updates, which include integrated file services, vSphere with Kubernetes support, and increased data services. Finally, vSAN 7 also simplifies HCI lifecycle management by reducing the number of tools required for Day 2 operations, while simultaneously increasing update reliability.
With more than 20,000 customers, vSAN remains #1 for HCI, claiming over 38% of the market share last quarter.Find Out Why IDC Named VMware the “Market Leading HCI Software for 2019 Q3”
