VMworld 2013: Session STO5391 - VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN)
VMware Virtual SAN clusters internal server disks to provide simple scalable shared storage with cloud agility and efficiency at upto 50% lower TCO. By pooling servers' internal disks and managing them directly in vCenter, storage management and provisioning for virtual machines is dramatically simplified. VMware Virtual SAN is architected with built-in resiliency and dynamic scalability while delivering the performance demanded by virtualized environments. Capital and operational expenses for shared storage infrastructure are significantly reduced by eliminating the need for dedicated hardware and complex management workflows.
