At VMworld in August of 2013, VMware announced VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN). It was in public beta until early March and went GA (General Availability) on March 10th. VSAN is VMware’s native version of Software Defined Storage (SDS). It is simple and easy to setup and managed by user-defined policies that are then applied to VMs as needed. It is this policy-based control that makes VSAN so powerful.
This white paper will look at VSAN, including what it is, basic requirements, how it works, and how various types of failures are handled. Some common uses will also be discussed.
