  • With vSAN, we no longer need a storage admin to run a SAN. And yet we still have all the functionality in vSphere including vMotion.

  • The ROI for VMware vSAN seems very positive. We have yet to need to upgrade since we put it in a few years ago, but without the heavy cost of dedicated storage, we have already seen reduced hardware maintenance costs and reduced management time spent.
  • With the cost of dedicated storage and its separate maintenance costs, all this is rolled back into the hosts. The hosts cost more with drives in them, but not near as much as the separate dedicated storage did.
  • Before VMware vSAN, you had hosts and storage devices aging out, running out of capacity, or underperforming. With vSAN you only have to worry about the hosts.

  • We spent less on a per gigabyte basis for our vSAN solution than we would have for competing products.
  • We received more pure storage for our vSAN solution than we would have for the same budget with a competing product.

  • vSAN offsets our costs of maintaining a separate discrete storage array at each site.
  • ROBO pricing lowers our TCO within the branch locations.
  • SSD drive prices have decreased significantly, allowing a lot broader all-flash deployments for our uses.
