Find out how the U.S. Senate Federal Credit Union virtualized its infrastructure with VMware. With the adoption of vSAN, the credit union can now scale their operations efficiently and plan for a bright future. Here’s what Systems Architect, Mark Fournier has to say.
We are excited to introduce you to our seventh generation of vSAN, version 6.7, which is focused completely on helping our customers take their IT and HCI experience to the next level – from the operations to operations to support vSAN. Learn more about vSAN 6.7 in this Technical White Paper
This video provides an introduction to vSAN features, benefits, and use cases.
Learn how hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) powered by vSAN saves you money and delivers higher agility for organizations.

VMware® vSAN™ is a hyper-converged, software-defined storage (SDS) platform that is fully integrated with VMware vSphere®. vSAN aggregates locally attached disks of hosts that are members of a vSphere cluster, to create a distributed shared storage solution. vSAN enables the rapid provisioning of storage within VMware vCenter™ as part of virtual machine creation and deployment operations. vSAN is the first policy-driven storage product designed for vSphere environments that simplifies and streamlines storage provisioning and management. Using VM-level storage policies, vSAN automatically and dynamically matches requirements with underlying storage resources. With vSAN, many manual storage tasks are automated – delivering a more efficient and cost-effective operational model.
This Technical Design and Sizing Guide document focuses on helping administrators to correctly design and size a vSAN cluster, and answer some of the common questions around number of hosts, number of disk groups, cache sizing, and number of capacity devices along with detailed configuration questions to help to correctly and successfully deploy vSAN.
vSAN is a hypervisor-converged, software-defined storage solution for the software-defined data center. It is the first policy-driven storage product designed for VMware vSphere® environments that simplifies and streamlines storage provisioning and management. vSAN is a distributed, shared storage solution that enables the rapid provisioning of storage within VMware vCenter Server™ as part of virtual machine creation and deployment operations.
This Network Design Guide gives a technology overview of vSAN network requirements and provides vSAN network design and configuration best practices for deploying a highly available and scalable vSAN solution.
vSAN 6.6 includes a new capability that allows for the easy installation of the VCSA appliance without having vSAN preconfigured. Read more about Easy Install in vSAN 6.6.
vSAN cloud powered health and performance monitoring improvements help administrators get the most out of vSAN introduced in version 6.6. Read more about vSAN’s Health Check improvements in vSAN 6.6.
VMware vSAN™ is enterprise-class storage for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). Native to the VMware vSphere® hypervisor, vSAN delivers flash-optimized, secure storage. It utilizes commodity x86 server components to lower costs up to 50% versus traditional server and storage array architectures. Learn more about vSAN 6.6 and 6.6.1 in this Technical White Paper.
