Have you ever wondered just how many virtual machines you can deploy in a single software-defined, hyper-converged infrastructure system? Wonder no more.

VMware and Intel teamed up to build a massive cluster that showcases how Virtual SAN can be used in large scale configurations with Intel’s latest SSD technology. This beast is optimized for extreme performance and features the latest NVM Express (NVMe) drives from Intel.

 

64nodesThe world’s first 64-Node All-Flash Virtual SAN is stacked with VMs. VMworld attendees will have the opportunity to take a picture (or selfie) with the beast in the HCI Zone during regular expo hours.

 

Tweet us your picture with the 64-Node VSAN at @VMwareVSAN using #VSANbeast for a chance to win VMware swag and appear on our blog!

 

VMworld attendees looking to learn more about the 64-Node Virtual SAN demo should attend Intel’s session Will You Still Love Me When I’m 64? that discusses larger VSAN All-Flash configurations and what to consider when designing, sizing, and tuning large configurations using the latest technologies.
