vSAN delivers VM-centric storage for desktops and applications with rapid provisioning through a familiar vSphere-integrated management console. Provision storage in just a few clicks, with consistently great performance through intelligent, automated management of storage policies that dynamically adjusts to desktop and application demand.
This vSphere kernel-embedded platform provides accelerated I/O and superior performance, offering expansive IOPS capacity with hybrid and all-flash configurations, for predictable, high-performance at scale.
Eliminate large up-front storage investments, by leveraging industry-standard x86 servers, disk and flash while reducing OpEx with integrated management using familiar vSphere tools. Avoid over-provisioning IOPS, with granular scaling that provides virtual desktops and applications with exactly the right amount of storage capacity and performance they require.
vSAN can be used in all-flash architecture in which server-attached flash devices provide both caching and data persistence for extremely high and consistent levels of performance or in a hybrid configuration in which server-side flash devices are pooled to provide a read/write cache and server-attached HDDs provide data persistence.
vSAN removes the need for training on specialized storage interfaces or the overhead of operating them. Provisioning is now as easy as two clicks. With VM-centric policy-based management and automated provisioning and balancing, every virtual desktop gets the storage resources it needs for consistently great performance.
Grow your desktop virtualization environment and non-disruptively expand the capacity of the vSAN datastore by adding hosts to a cluster (scale-out) to expand capacity and performance or disks to a host (scale-up) to add capacity or performance for desktops and apps.
vSAN can be deployed on hardware from any server manufacturere, giving you the flexibility to build customized storage systems in heterogeneous hardware environments. vSAN Ready Nodes are pre-configured and certified to run vSAN out of the box and are availabe from all major OEM vendors. Or leverage Dell EMC VxRail, a jointly engineered appliance designed to streamline the deployment experience.
With just a few clicks, IT administrators can provision this VMware vSphere-embedded, enterprise-ready storage solution and begin managing it with familiar VMware vCenter tools.
