Stretched Clusters

Virtual SAN 6.1 Stretched Clusters provides customers with the ability to deploy a single Virtual SAN cluster across multiple data center. Click here for an in-depth look at the benefits of stretched clusters.





Virtual SAN 6.1 is a game-changer for smaller ROBO environments, where they can now have all of the manageability, performance, and availability benefits of a traditional Virtual SAN cluster implementation with just two physical nodes and a witness virtual appliance. In addition, a new Virtual SAN ROBO license makes it easier and more affordable to deploy in many small ROBO environments. Learn how your business can leverage VSAN for ROBO here.
