IRON VSAN Systems Series Overview: VMWare Virtual SAN Storage Building Blocks

VSAN-Series VMware Virtual SAN Datasheet

Pre-Configured VSAN storage system appliance, powered by VMWare virtual SAN software provides optimization with high-performance, efficiency, resiliency and configuration versatility on Industry-standard commodity hardware

VMware Virtual SAN is a new software-defined storage tier for VMware vSphere, bringing the benefits of the software-defined data center to storage. By clustering server hard disk and solid state drives (HDDs and SSDs), Virtual SAN creates a flash-optimized, highly resilient shared datastore designed for virtual environments.

The VSAN products, powered by VMWare virtual SAN provide a software-defined data center solution based on hypervisor-converged distributed architectures. VSAN products are modular building blocks which provide a simple and inexpensive storage solution to implement a hyper-converged data center initiative, while providing a path to scale-out the virtual storage and compute infrastructure by adding additional blocks as needed.


VMWare Virtual SAN Software Platform Key Benefits:

  • Total Software-defined Datacenter or Software Defined Storage architectures
  • Optimized, VSAN storage system or IronPOD integrated Rack system validated Hardware Design for Storage Deployments
  • Server-side read/write caching - Virtual SAN minimizes storage
  • latency by accelerating read/write disk I/O traffic with built-in
  • caching on enterprise-grade server-side flash technology
  • VSAN node, Converges computing and storage into single system
  • Single pane of glass management with VMware vSphere and Virtual SANDashboard offers rapid provisioning of compute and storage resources
  • Zero-downtime orchestrated updates and upgrades of the entire cluster
  • Scale-Out and Scale-in capacity by adding or removing servers without reconfig

IRON VSAN Series System Hardware Platform Key Benefits

  • Turnkey, Custom-designed and certified configurations which can be shipped in less than a week
  • Inexpensive Tier-1 and Tier-2 commodity hardware platforms from Dell, Quanta and Supermicro helps reduce TCO by up to 50 percent
