  • Optimizing your Infrastructure: An Essential Guide to vSAN ReadyNodes
    Optimizing your Infrastructure: An Essential Guide to vSAN ReadyNodes
    Biswapati Bhattacharjee, Sr. Product Manager, VMware Recorded: Sep 5 2017 62 mins
    vSAN continues to drive the rapid growth of hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), adopted by more than 8,000 customers. One of the most popular HCI consumption models is the vSAN ReadyNode – pre-configured, tested and certified x86 servers designed for optimal HCI performance. Today, we have more than 300 pre-configured ReadyNodes listed in our vSAN Compatibility Guide, which includes certified CPUs, memory, network, I/O controllers and storage options available from our OEM partners across the globe.

    While pre-configured vSAN ReadyNodes ensure excellent HCI performance, some users need the flexibility to use another capacity tier device or a different processor in their ReadyNode. In this webcast, we will explore what you can and can’t change in a pre-configured ReadyNode. We’ll also talk about Day 0 availability for ReadyNodes with the new Intel Purley server platform, and discuss:

    The high level certification process conducted by our vSAN ReadyLabs
    vSAN Hardware Market Segmentation
    Guidelines on building your own ReadyNode with certified components
    Brief review of vSAN Hardware Guidance

  • vSAN & HCI: Understanding Data Placement, Movement & Availability
    vSAN & HCI: Understanding Data Placement, Movement & Availability
    Jeff Hunter, Staff Technical Marketing Architect at VMware Recorded: Aug 9 2017 63 mins
    This session builds on foundational understanding of high-level vSAN architecture such as disk groups, fault domains, and cache and capacity tiers. We will begin with some examples of how vSAN distributes data in the cluster to preserve data integrity and availability and how rules in a storage policy affect data component placement. Infrastructure lifecycle management commonly requires hardware maintenance, firmware upgrades, and software patches. A hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) powered by vSAN is no exception.

    This session will provide technical details on how to verify the health of a vSAN cluster and remediate configuration issues. We will cover the use maintenance mode options to help ensure virtual machines remain online during planned host downtime. The session will conclude with discussion on how vSAN effectively handles the availability of data when a disk or host goes offline temporarily or permanently with little or no warning.
