VMware Virtual SAN Enterprise Network Design and Implementation with Brocade
As the growth and adoption of Virtual SAN continues to expand in enterprise data centers, the demand for designs and deployments across routed (L3) networks has increased. One of the fundamental components of the software-defined data center is Virtual SAN designs and deployments which must adhere to the same requirements and demands as the other software-defined data center components.
Designing an implementation of Virtual SAN across layer 3 networks require adequate planning and understanding of both the scalable capabilities of Virtual SAN and the network infrastructure, in order to be designed and implemented in the most flexible, efficient way in real scale-out fashion.
Virtual SAN extends upon the software-defined datacenter concept by pooling together distributed resources (storage devices) and manage them as a single entity (one datastore), this is achieved with the dependency of suitable network infrastructures to provide seamless inter-connectivity between the Virtual SAN cluster nodes.
