Did you know that we hold monthly vSAN chats on Twitter? Well, now you know! Join us at 11am PT on the last Thursday of each month with the hashtag #vSANChat on Twitter.

What’s a vSAN Chat? A #vSANChat is a Tweet Chat – basically an "Ask Me Anything" or typed Q&A session on Twitter. We cover a variety of topics related to vSAN with hand-picked subject matter experts. During the hour of the #vSANChat, we ask a series of questions in a Twitter thread and our expert guests answer. Have a vSAN question? You can join the conversation by tweeting with the hashtag #vSANChat.

Upcoming: TBA
