vSAN 6.6 – What’s In It For Service Providers

Last February when VMware released VSAN 6.2 I stated that “Things had gotten Interesting” with regards to the 6.2 release of vSAN finally marking it’s arrival as a serious player in the Hyper-converged Infrastructure (HCI) market. vSAN was ready to be taken very seriously by VMware’s competitors. Fast forward fourteen months and apart from the fact we have confirmed the v The post vSAN 6.6 – What’s In It For Service Providers appeared first on VIRTUALIZATION IS LIFE! .

Being a product of the 90’s, one of my favorite past times was MTV’s “Unplugged” series. Whether it was Pearl Jam, or 10,000 Maniacs, or Eric Clapton, there was something about the acoustic, raw, uncut nature of the show that drew me in and made me look at my favorite bands in a new way.

Our goal was simple – exhibit a complete lifecycle for any customer to go from evaluation to production operation thereby enabling customer operations. The result was a video summary demoing our enhanced tooling that complements our simple three-step workflow: environmental assessment, plan and enforcement, and then continuous monitoring.

Intel Optane support for vSAN, first HCI…

I am in Australia this week for the Sydney and Melbourne VMUG UserCon’s. Had a bunch of meetings yesterday and this morning the news was dropped that Intel Optane support was released for vSAN. The performance claims look great, 2.5x more IOPS and 2.5x less latency. (I don’t know the test specifics yet.) On top of that, Optane typically has a higher endurance rating, meaning that the device can incur a lot more writes, which makes it an ideal device for the vSAN caching layer.
