Overall Satisfaction with VMware vSAN

We are using our VMware vSAN across the entire network for the majority of our VM, file, and backups storage at this time. Since all our user file shares live there, technically all our departments are using it too. We had many issues before with a physical SAN, but those are mostly a thing of the past.
  • Fastest SAN solution hands down.
  • Easy to connect hosts to LUNS/Datastores.
  • Great support staff and easy ticket system.
  • More direct integration with backup systems.
  • More user friendly interface.
  • Lower tier options for budget users would be nice.
  • Positive impact: lots of time saved.
  • Positive impact: ease of use is through the roof.
  • Negative: We use it so much we need more space already!
Support is (as always forVMware) top notch and easy to work with. The majority of computer companies are outsourcing their tech staff, and it seems they do as well. But their guys know the product well and are quick to respond to your ticket (if the severity is right!).
The software side is where the magic happens, and VMware's vSAN works well and very few bugs encountered. If you run into an issue then support is usually quick to fix. Of course moving up versions you will see interface changes, some for the better, some worse. But that's to be expected in this business.

VMware is widely known for their virtual server prowess and their vSAN implementation is just as good as their other products. It's easy to recommend this product to colleagues as everyone is using a SAN these days. I have already recommended this to others who are in the market for a new SAN or vSAN.
