Hi guys

I'm planing to build some VMware lab and test VSAN. Actually I think to build couple of esxi host on VMware workstation.

Can somebody tell me what is the best idea to bring up this kind of lab or my idea with the work station is pretty much good.

Thanks

You will need to be aware of a couple of things you will need to create what we calle Nested ESXi servers on VMware Workstation, and also you will need to "fake" SSDs as vSAN requires at least 1 x SSD, 1 x Magnetic HDD, and 3 Hosts.

So you will need 3 x ESXi Servers.
