    Interesting information –
    Can you suggest if this might be an option given this situation:
    2 hosts – emc san. the San is running out of space, but the hosts (cisco c20’s) have 16 bays of unused space each in them. Would using VSAN be an option to ‘load up’ each of the hosts with storage and then present it as storage space for additional virtual hosts ? If I understand it correctly, each ‘physical host’ could have a certain number of drives – and collectively shared as ‘pool’ storage for the enviroment?

    thanks,
    mark

    Parallels Cloud Server has similar vSAN feature. Works great!
