Virtual SAN 6.2 launched


What is Virtual SAN?

VMware Virtual SAN is radically simple, enterprise-class native storage for VMware Hyper-Converged Software solutions. Uniquely embedded in the hypervisor, Virtual SAN delivers high performance, flash-optimized hyper-converged storage for any virtualized application—at a fraction of the cost of
traditional, purpose-built storage and other less-efficient hyper-converged infrastructure solutions. Virtual SAN clusters server-attached flash devices and/or hard disks to provide a flash-optimized, highly resilient shared datastore suitable for a variety of workloads including business-critical applications, virtual desktops, remote IT, DR, and DevOps infrastructure.
