VMware vCenter Server™, vSphere, and Virtual SAN collectively create the best platform for running and managing virtual machine workloads requiring predictable performance and rapid recovery in the event of a disaster. The integration of Virtual SAN with vSphere simplifies administration through storage policy-based management. Business-critical workloads such as web sites, e-commerce applications, databases, employee remote access, and communications can benefit from shared storage without the cost and complexity of dedicated storage hardware.
The new release of Virtual SAN, version 6.2, further reduces TCO by reducing data capacity consumption by as much as 10x. Virtual SAN 6.2 is optimized for modern all-flash storage, delivering efficient near-line deduplication, compression, and erasure coding capabilities that enable high performance all-flash systems for as low as $1 per GB of usable capacity—up to 50% less than the cost of lower-performing hybrid solutions from the leading competition.
This white paper focuses on the economics of flash in today’s datacenters and goes into details of space efficiency features of Virtual SAN.
This guide provides an overview on how Virtual SAN can be utilized successfully in an environment governed by PCI compliance. The following sections discuss the primary PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) goals and requirements as found in the PCI DSS Quick Reference Guide (version 3.1).
This guide explains the Virtual SAN licensing editions, discusses some Virtual SAN configuration options at a high level, and provides a number of examples to further illustrate potential licensing scenarios.

This document provides a brief Virtual SAN architecture overview and covers the new features introduced in Virtual SAN 6.2.
vSphere Virtual Volumes is an integration and management framework for external storage that provides finer control at the VM-level, streamlines storage operation and offers flexibility of choice. This white paper is intended for Oracle Database administrators, storage architects, and VMware administrators involved in planning, architecting, and administering a business-critical Oracle environment.
This white paper demonstrates and discusses VMware all-flash Virtual SUPERMICRO SAN Ready Node, a hypervisor-converged infrastructure, which perfectly fits these needs. The paper also shares the results of virtual desktop infrastructure full-clone and linked desktop deployments scenarios running on SUPERMICRO TwinPro2 servers, which are superior deployment models for virtual desktop infrastructure.
