Every once in a while I have someone asking me how about VSAN scale? Typically the question is triggered by a conversation had with another storage vendor and either a misunderstanding or pure FUD that was spread. It is nice to see some of our beta testers showing the possibilities with VSAN. How about the result of the Miami VMUG? These guys managed to get their hands on 3 awesome Dell R720xd hosts and found someone willing to host them. Then they started building, and it didn’t take them long to figure out what the limit was on a 3 node cluster… They managed to run 2250 virtual machines on 3 hosts. Yes, that is indeed more than two thousand virtual machines.
Thanks Miami VMUG for going all out.

Hehe, at 18.75 vCPU per pCPU I imagine %RDY would have been too high to actually do anything with that setup =)

Just imagine what happens when they need to take 1 host down for maintenance 🙂
