Consolidated list of all Virtual SAN (VSAN) deep dive resources.

In the spirit of everything VSAN, I have decided to compile a list of all the deep dive resources and tutorials that I can find into a single blog post. This is a work in progress, so it won’t be comprehensive for a while.

FAQ

Q: How to correctly size for Flash capacity?

R: It’s about 10% of anticipated consumed storage capacity. There is a good screenshot I can share, with an example:

VSAN sizing VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) 1.0 GA   FAQ, Pricing and Design Options

Q: Is 10Gb connectivity for VSAN traffic required?

R: No, but highly recommended, as during rebuilds (if some component has failure) the VSAN traffic will flow through the 1GbE and the link might get saturated.

Q: The vSphere Distributed Switch offer is only to be used on VSAN clusters, right?

R: Yes, when activating the VSAN licensing option, there will be option to use VDS.

Q: Where can I find some ready nodes config document

R: There is a PDF document on the VMware partner site which you can download here. There are Dell, Cisco, Supermicro, IBM ready nodes present, as for now.
