Virtual SAN is a software-defined storage offering from VMware that enables enterprises to pool their storage capabilities and to instantly and automatically provision virtual machine storage via simple policies that are driven by the virtual machine.
VMware's virtual storage area networking (SAN) solution also provides the ability to dynamically scale storage capacity and performance as needed, and exposes the underlying physical storage to the virtual machines through a policy-driven control pane.
VMware's Virtual SAN, or VSAN, is currently in public beta release and is free for anyone to download.
