How it works

The VSAN assessment uses a free SaaS based VMware Infrastructure Planner (VIP) tool to run a free comprehensive analysis of the vSphere Storage environment (i.e. I/O patterns). In just one week, the VSAN assessment uses the analysis to provide the following technical and business recommendations:

  1. Which VMs are suitable candidate for Virtual SAN- Hybrid or All flash
  2. Sizing and hardware recommendations (I.e number of servers, SSD, HDD)
  3. TCO analysis compared to storage arrays
