2-Node vSAN

sara2000 asked
Last Modified: 2019-12-11
We have a small remote office and want to set up a VMware solution to run about five servers. The maximum storage would be 3 TB. The system should be highly available. I only know about the shared storage, and ESXi hosts which will do the  HA.
A colleague of mine asked me to look for a vSAN solution.  Experts out there, you might have implemented a vSAN solution?
Would you recommend me to go in that direction instead of purchasing multiple ESXi hosts and shared storage?
We have HQ with VMware fracture. Is it possible for us to buy two ESXi hosts with local storage and use the Witness server as a VM from HQ?
