The Process

Our VMware experts work with you for one week to install the vSAN Assessment software, analyze your environment, and provide business and technical recommendations to maximize your IT investment.

vSAN Assessment Software tools and procedures include:


vSAN Assessment Portal

This SaaS-based application receives I/O traces from your infrastructures and presents detailed results.


vSAN Assessment Tool Collector

Gathers data from your environment and sends it to the Assessment Portal – without collecting or storing any sensitive information.


Environment Analysis

Identifies all virtual machines that are suitable candidates for vSAN and the best-fit architecture (hybrid or all-flash).


TCO and Sizing Calculator

Automatically imports and reviews vSAN cluster sizing recommendations gathered through the Environment Analysis and provides vSAN savings by year, TCO without vSAN, and TCO with vSAN.
