Hot off the press!!! and ready just in time for your turkey day break so you can feed your brain a bit more. The new Virtual SAN Stretched Cluster Bandwidth Guidelines white paper is officially available.
Earlier this summer when the feature was announced with the release of Virtual SAN 6.1, my buddy, Duncan Epping and I provided example formulas that could be used for calculating network bandwidth requirements for Virtual SAN Stretched Clusters during our “STO5333 – Building a Stretched Cluster with Virtual SAN” session in both San Francisco and Barcelona .
We also promised that documentation containing all of the necessary and required detailed information containing the “how, why, when, and where” along with the validated metrics from our engineering team would be published soon, Well here it is… for those looking to evaluate Virtual SAN Stretched Clusters and to also gain better understanding about the bandwidth sizing semantics for the solution.
The paper can no be download directly from the link below:
BOOM!!! Get Some!! 😀
