vSAN Features

Extraordinary Efficiency at Cloud Scale

Scale compute and storage independently via disaggregation for optimal resources utilization and lower costs.

Developer-Ready Infrastructure

Enable developers to seamlessly consume storage to create apps at scale, while providing the governance admins need to manage the infrastructure for VMs and containers.

Integrated File Services

Easily provision a file share with a single workflow, and use vSAN as a unified storage control plane for both block and file storage. 

Powerful Stateful Services

Leverage the vSAN Data Persistence platform framework to integrate cloud-native applications into the underlying virtual infrastructure.

Consistent Storage Policy-Based Management

Align storage with the application demands of your VMs and container volumes. Define storage needs for a VM, volume or VMDK and let the software apply and enforce the requirements.

Address Key Uses

Business-Critical Applications

Achieve high performance for your most vital apps. Expedite deployment with highly automated processes and reduce storage costs compared to legacy storage solutions.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Improve your user experience and get superior desktop and app performance at scale, with resources that precisely match your growth requirements.

Remote Offices and Branch Offices (ROBO)

Boost local IT performance by managing it from your data center. Start with a small physical footprint of just two nodes and expand as needed. Control costs with flexible licensing models.

Disaster Recovery (DR)

Lower DR costs by using HCI servers, not instead of purpose-built storage arrays. Manage your DR site easily from the data center. Orchestrate and automate recovery by combining vSAN with VMware Site Recovery Manager and vSphere Replication.

Cloud Native Applications

Run, monitor and manage storage for containers and virtual machines on the same platform. Cloud-native storage provides comprehensive data management for both stateless and stateful applications.
