Now that VMware officially launched Virtual SAN, its time for everyone to get up to speed with the some of the latest and greatest changes with regards to the new design and sizing considerations guidance for Virtual SAN.
Yesterday, we announced the official release time frame for the general availability of the product the week of March 10th as well as the items listed below:
- 3 to 32 node cluster support
- Maximum support of 3200 Virtual Machines
- 2 Million IOPS performance capability
- 4.4 Petabytes of Storage Capacity
Along with those changes and updates there are also some significant changes in the recommendation for the sizing of the flash layer for Virtual SAN. I highly recommend reviewing the white paper as the new sizing guidelines can have an impact on the overall investment and performance of the flash layer for Virtual SAN. The new design and sizing guide can be found and downloaded from the VMware Virtual SAN product page or directly from the link provided below:
