VMware Virtual SAN Assessment
Validate virtual SAN's benefits to your organization
Virtualizing your servers with VMware vSphere was a smart move, helping you reduce IT costs and increase the agility of your business. Now you can leverage your vSphere environment with the help of VMware Virtual SAN to create a software-defined, hyper-converged storage solution that is radically simple to manage and delivers high-performance at a lower TCO. The VMware Virtual SAN Assessment helps you plan and accelerate this next step with a free, comprehensive analysis of how Virtual SAN can fit into your vSphere environment, adding breakthrough capabilities and dramatic new value.
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:
- Which VMs are suitable candidate for Virtual SAN- Hybrid or All flash
- Sizing and hardware recommendations (I.e number of servers, SSD, HDD)
- TCO analysis compared to storage arrays
