specialized expertise

VMware Virtual SAN Overview

VMware Virtual SAN creates end-to-end visibility between the virtual layer and the storage layer. VSAN used a hyper-converged storage architecture, enabling compute and storage resources to be delivered through a common VMware virtualized platform. Best of all, VSAN is easy to scale, and provides the best price to performance.

Why Virtual San?


Scales to Tomorrow

Prepare for tomorrow’s dynamic business in the multi-cloud era, with a solution designed to utilize the latest storage and server technologies, while supporting a wide range of applications, from current business critical applications, to next-gen applications. And use it as a stepping stone
to the cloud.

Enables you to respond 10x faster

Enables You to Evolve Without Risk

As the only native-vSphere storage, vSAN enables you to seamlessly extend virtualization to storage, creating a hyper-converged solution that simply works with your existing tools, skillsets, software solutions and hardware platforms.

Save up to 20% per ROBO site.

Reduces TCO

Faced with tight IT budgets, customers are turning to HCI powered by VSAN to lower total cost of ownership up to 50%. vSAN can dramatically reduce costs due to hardware choice, server-side economics, and affordable flash. Your operations become easier with fewer tasks and intelligent

Supports next-generation hardware

5 ways Virtual SAN saves time & money


Effortless to deploy, manage, and budget


Automates routine storage tasks using simple policy-based management framework. No special skill sets required


Enables dynamic storage provisioning with per-VM granularity & incremental hardware purchase



Hardware agnostic, allowing for full customization to meet both capacity and performance requirements


Leverages server-side economics, enables high-resource utilization with a predictable,
linear cost curve

Hyper-converged Storage Systems Simplify Enterprise Scale-out Deployment

Virtual SAN provides you with the ability to provision and manage compute, network and storage resources from a single pane of management. Virtual SAN clusters server disks and flash to create radically simple, high performance, resilient shared storage designed for virtual machines.

Ready to Deploy Configurations

A Virtual SAN Ready Node is a preconfigured single or multi-node server hardware configuration for use with Virtual SAN. A Ready Node configuration includes specific type and amount of CPU, Memory, Flash, HDD, and I/O Controller devices within each server. Each VSAN Ready Node is classified by a Ready Node configuration profile.
