With IT under pressure to meet growing business demands and keep costs in check, one thing is clear: traditional infrastructure doesn’t cut it any longer.
That’s why now is the right time to bring the advantages of virtualization to storage. As a core building block of the modern data center, VMware vSAN extends the benefits of VMware vSphere beyond compute and powers hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions. With vSAN, you can achieve both the scalability and cost efficiency you’re looking for.
VMware vSAN builds on the foundation of VMware vSphere to deliver the essential capabilities you need in a hyper-converged infrastructure solution. And by moving to hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) with VMware vSAN™, you can modernize your data center while lowering costs, increasing security, and accelerating performance.
With vSAN, you can run your most critical business applications like Oracle, Exchange and SAP with enterprise reliability, security, and performance. vSAN’s all-flash architecture can deliver 150K IOPS per node with sub millisecond latencies. That’s probably why more than 60 percent of VMware customers run their business-critical applications on vSAN. And with vSAN, IT can deliver desktop services to end users by running virtual machines on consolidated clusters in the data center, delivering high performance while lowering TCO over traditional storage arrays.
vSAN lets you manage your remote and branch offices with little to no local IT staff, giving you a simple, cost-effective, and highly available solution that can be centrally managed from the main data center.
You can even protect data and simplify disaster recovery operations and management in remote DR sites with little or no local IT staff. Combined with VMware Site Recovery Manager, vSAN and vSphere Replication also lets you orchestrate and automate the recovery of multiple virtual machines.
vSAN gives you a clear and cost-effective path to hyper-convergence – without the need for a lot of new training and skills for IT. To learn more about the ways vSAN enables data center evolution and reduces TCO, connect with a Zones account executive today.
