VMWare’s vSAN Community site has been launched today in preparation for the release of vSphere 5.5 including the new vSAN feature (clustered, replicated local storage on hosts acting as a “Virtual SAN”). You can have a look at the walkthroughs here. You can sign up for the beta program here, more vSAN info available here. Of course vSphere 5.5 offers many more features than just vSAN but this is their “flagship” innovation – and rightly so, what remains to be seen is what edition it appears in so we can tell what it’s going to cost! vSAN Datasheet / vSphere 5.5 What’s New Keep an eye out here as I update with more info on the beta of vSAN and vSphere 5.5. Update 20/09/13 11:00am: vSphere environment for Windows v5.5 now live, download here! vSphere v5.5 / ESXi v5.5 / vSA download pages now up
