Wikibon has predicted that Server SAN will overtake traditional storage arrays. The latest version of VSAN 6.2 moves a step closer to displacing legacy storage arrays. I’m joined by VMware Principle Architect Rawlinson Rivera (@punchinglcloud). We hit some critical questions about the latest version. Here’s a short list of topics we touched upon.
- Value proposition of VSAN
- What’s new
- Mission critical application support
- Policy based management for application such as SAP
- Erasure Coding
- Why no deduplication for magnetic disks
