vSAN ReadyNode provides the most flexible hardware options to build Hyper-Converged Infrastructure based on VMware Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Software. However, occasionally we get the question about vSAN designs that are slightly outside the standard vSAN ReadyNode configuration. This week we invite VMware SE Manager James LeFort to go off-road with us and share some of the designs he sees in the field as well as some guidance for those considering such a path.

James LeFort is a VMware Systems Engineering Manager leading technical pre-sales efforts for West and Central regions. He has been on the vSAN team since vSAN 5.5.  Follow James on twitter @jdlefort.
