I have a question on VMware HCI kit and vSAN ROBO. I hope someone will shed light on this.
I know vSAN ROBO is for multiple sites if we want to deploy less than 25 VMS.
If we have only one remote site then can we deploy vSAN with HCI? kit instead of spending too much money?
vSphere Licenses + vSAN Licenses = HCI Kit.
rather than purchasing vSphere and vSAN separately.
vSAN ROBO is vSAN ROBO! e.g. you've got to purchase your vCenter Server, ESXi licenses as well...
Your VMware Account manager will be able to give you competitive pricing!
VMware HCI Kit Essentials (per-CPU) that includes vSphere Essentials plus and vSAN Standard
(maybe your cheapest option) but not as cheap as just purchasing a Synology NAS for Shared Storage, or Veeam Backup and Replication!
