VMware’s Virtual SAN has rapidly proven itself in environments ranging from hospitals to oil rigs to e-commerce platforms. Along the way, it has matured to offer unsurpassed features for data integrity, availability, and space efficiency. Virtual SAN 6.x makes all-flash storage practical for even more use cases, while radically simplifying IT operations and supporting the transition to hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI). Now, the authors of Essential Virtual SAN (VSAN) have thoroughly updated their definitive guide to this transformative technology. Writing for vSphere administrators, architects, and consultants, Cormac Hogan and Duncan Epping explain what Virtual SAN is, how it has evolved, what it now offers, and how to gain maximum value from it.

Can’t wait to read it Duncan! Was wondering if you had any plans to write up a blog post about how to properly power down (and then power back up) a vSAN cluster. Specifically a UPS would be helpful! There’s no information on this subject on the web from what I can gather.
Great book, enjoyed reading it. One thing I can’t find is about streched clustering in a hybrid setup. If site A (fault domain A) fails, all VMs will run on site B. Will, if site A remains off-line for more then 60 minutes, a replication of the running VMs on site B start? (enough disk space should be available). In other words, if Site A fails will VSAN try to create n+1 on site B or will it remain as is until site A is back online?
