Posted by Marcel van den Berg   |   Tuesday, October 8th, 2013   |  

Cormac Hogan, Senior Technical Marketing Architect for Storage at VMware, wrote a 30-page PDF document titled ”Virtual SAN Design & Sizing Guide”.

The document is designed to assist customers with sizing decisions when deploying VSAN clusters. It should be used in conjunction with other official VMware collateral related to VSAN, such as the VSAN documentation from
VMware Technical Marketing and VMware Technical Publications.

The image below shows what the document covers:

The paper  can be downloaded by VMware Partners from Partner Central here. (login needed)

The document is also publicly available in the VMware VSAN Public beta. Sign up here. Registration is open for everyone interested in this new technology.
The design and sizing guide is part of the VSAN POC Kit.

This Proof of Concept (POC) Kit contains 4 documents to help you to successfully evaluate Virtual SAN (VSAN) and gain an understanding of the considerations which must be taken into account with a VSAN deployment. It also covers the main concepts of VSAN, notably the radically simple installation steps, the scale out aspects and policy driven storage.

  1. POC Guide Pre-checklist for VSAN
  2. POC Guide for VSAN
  3. POC Guide Post-checklist for VSAN
  4. VSAN Design & Sizing Guide

These documents are currently in beta. Please provide feedback in the forums in any errors are observed or if any enhancements to the documentation set is required
