High Availability with Virtual SAN
Create multi - node cluster with low cost and low complexity with any existing server hardware and any Hypervisor (VMware, HyperV or Linux KVM)
A Virtual SAN – a software-defined solution designed to run on two or more servers and deliver highly available shared
It simplifies your IT infrastructure. Eliminates the need for a physical SAN, enabling hyperconvergence by virtualizing the internal compute and storage of any x86 server and presenting it via a hypervisor as shared storage.
Any hyperviser (VMware, HyperV or KVM ) is supported.
A typical two-node configuration, with a centralized management interface and witness, is shown in below fig
How does it work ?
Creates a highly available shared storage across two nodes or more
Same code, regardless of hypervisor : vSphere, Hyper - V or KVM
Work on any x86 server, all types of storage and any CPU
Eliminates the need for a physical SAN
Synchronous replication across nodes.
What makes its different ?
Lightweight, low cost architecture simplifies deployment
Specifically built for both edge and datacenter
Runs on as little as 1v CPU, 1GB RAM & 1GbE
One tiny witness capable of managing1000 clusters
