"This product has good performance."
"It's completely hyper-converged, so it's very convenient."
"Overall the solution is very good."
"The technical support is good. We are always thankful for the technical support from VMware. They are very supportive when we have a technical problem."
"The installation is very easy."
"I like the orchestration feature."
"The solution is quite stable."
"The solution has high performance."
"The high availability is very good."
"The response time for read requests can be improved."
"Its installation should be easier, and its price should be cheaper. It would be good for the product if they can include the data locality feature."
"The stability needs to be improved."
"If one node out of your ten nodes fails, it takes a lot of time to replicate and rebalance VMware vSAN. This time can be reduced. When a node fails and the data is not accessible, vSAN has to be rebalanced to make the redundancy level of two again. However, if it is taking a lot of time and any other hardware fails during that time, then we have a problem. Two disk failures mean that all data will be lost, and we may have to recover it from the backup. So, the number of threads that run to do the rebalancing could be more so that the time taken to make it fully redundant again is not so much."
"Troubleshooting tools could be improved."
"The price for the hard drive, for vSAN, is very expensive."
"In a future release, they could add micro-segmentation or security level features integrated into vSAN."
"This product is very expensive."
"When you upgrade the vSAN, there are some issues like lost data and problems with the log. The log disappears. When you upgrade the solution, you must have several logs, so if you have some problems, you can check the log server to find them."
