  Now I get the same great benefits of virtualization for my storage. Virtual SAN is as budget-friendly as it is simple. Enter VMware Virtual SAN Radically simple software-defined storage  2 Simplify Your Storage VMware Virtual SAN brings benefits to your businesses and your IT infrastructure alike. This affordable, scalable storage solution means you can add storage when you need it—without committing large amounts of capital or disrupting day-to-day operations. From its simple configuration and installation to its automated policy-based management, VMware Virtual SAN quite simply transforms the operational model for storage in virtual environments. Through automation it makes short work of manual tasks that add the cost and complexity so common in traditional storage solutions. Now you can simplify your VM storage—and give your business the performance, agility and cost effectiveness it needs. Virtual SAN is ideal for: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Cutting storage TCO up to 50% and allowing you to granularly scale-up or scale-out your storage as your environment expands. It easily handles peak performance requirements (including boot, login and read/write storms), supports high-density VDI environments, and allows you to granularly scale from proof of concept through to production. Tier 2/3 Production Apps and Test/Dev environments Making it simpler to manage, reducing storage costs for non-mission critical workloads, delivering high performance and consolidation ratios, and providing VM-level SLA management via storage-based policies. It’s also ideal for workloads that need replication RPOs of less than 15 minutes with 2 to 3 daily snapshots. Disaster Recovery With zero data loss in the event of hardware failures. It’s simple to deploy for any VMware vSphere® admin through integration with the VMware stack and works seamlessly with VMware vSphere® Replication and vCenter™ Site Recovery Manager™. Finally, it reduces the cost of storage and minimizes your data center footprint, putting an enterprise-grade DR solution within reach for enterprises of any size. Virtual SAN is a key building block of a software-defined data center. With an immediate positive impact on business, Virtual SAN is not only a category leader but is the first policy-driven storage product designed for virtualized environments. From its easy installation and configuration to the automated provisioning and management—it allows you to radically simplify storage, drive down costs and increase your agility. Read on to discover some of the real-world applications of Virtual SAN.  3 Oregon State University Education: Academic Institution Challenge: Growing workloads strained the system and manual balancing couldn’t compensate for increasing load. Solution: Virtual SAN is a scalable, software-defined storage tier for VMware vSphere environments. Result: Distributed software-defined storage has improved network availability, while automatic load balancing has increased performance and improved IT productivity. “ Before Virtual SAN, we had no scalability. Now… it’s a piece of cake; if I want to add additional capacity, I just add additional capacity. I don’t have to worry about whether my SAN can grow or not.” Alan Sprague, System Administrator, Oregon State University Itrica IT Services Provider for the medical industry Challenge: Implementing a single storage system that meets the needs of all customers. Solution: Virtual SAN lets them instantly provision customized virtual storage for each customer. Result: Reduced cost, while improving performance and managing scalability and redundancy from a single pane of glass. “ By minimizing the I/O path, we’re able to achieve best-in-class performance on this converged platform.” David Sampson, CTO, Itrica  4 Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions IT and Communications Provider Challenge: To expand its cloud computing business the company has to provide customers with highly available and fault tolerant storage. Solution: Virtual SAN provides easy-to-use shared storage. Result: Policy-based storage management has meant far fewer SLA issues, while pay-as-you-grow scalability has reduced TCO. “ Virtual SAN allows CBTS to build another level of fault tolerance and high availability into our virtual deployments for mission-critical, Intel-based applications.” Dave Burns, Vice President of Technical Operations, CBTS Digital Media Software Company Global leader in digital media software Challenge: To improve internal delivery and simplify IT resource management. Solution: Implemented shared storage for VMs. Result: Storage and compute resources are now managed together through integrated virtualization solutions, with faster delivery to end-users. “ Virtual SAN enables us to gain the benefits of the vSphere stack without having us look towards traditional SAN across a large distributed environment.” Cloud Architect, Digital Media Software Company
