I am excited to announce the availability of VMware Virtual SAN 6.2, the 4th edition of the radically simple, vSphere-embedded storage solution that is powering HCI solutions at over 3,000 customers! Get your hands on it today by downloading an evaluation copy and see for yourself why VMware Hyper-Converged Software—the combination of Virtual SAN, vSphere and vCenter Server—is one of the most popular and fastest growing software platforms for Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI).
You first heard about VSAN 6.2 last month and hopefully realized that—despite the small versioning change from 6.1 to 6.2—this is not your typical dot release. This is our biggest launch of Virtual SAN since we first introduced the product two years ago with Virtual SAN 5.5.
