VMware Virtual SAN Design and Sizing Guide for Horizon View

VMware Virtual SAN™ is a hypervisor-converged, software-defined storage platform that is fully integrated with VMware vSphere®. Virtual SAN aggregates locally attached disks of hosts that are members of a vSphere cluster, to create a distributed shared storage solution. Virtual SAN enables the rapid provisioning of storage within VMware vCenter™ as part of virtual machine creation and deployment operations.

Virtual SAN uses a hybrid disk architecture that leverages both flash-based devices for performance and magnetic disks for capacity and persistent data storage. This hybrid architecture delivers a scale-out storage platform with enterprise performance and resiliency at a compelling price point.

The distributed datastore of Virtual SAN is an object-store file system that leverages the vSphere Storage Policy–Based Management (SPBM) framework to deliver application-centric storage services and capabilities that are centrally managed through vSphere virtual machine storage policies.
This document focuses on the definitions, sizing guidelines, and characteristics of the Virtual SAN distributed datastore for Horizon™ View™ virtual desktop infrastructures.
