VMware vSAN 6.5 usage example and caveats

Last Modified: 2018-03-21
Hi People,

Can anyone here please share some good use for the VMware vSAN and what are the caveats or limitation in terms of the feature ?

The reason I ask this is because I've got about about 12+ ESXi running on various rack mount servers (HP & Dell brand) so I wonder if I populate the Local HDD with the largest possible drive I can make good use of it better than my current HP 3PAR & Lefthand SAN running through iSCSI connection.

Thanks in advance.
