Introduction

About Storage Space Efficiency

Deduplication

vSAN 6.2 introduces space efficiency features optimized for modern all-flash storage, designed to minimize storage capacity consumption while ensuring availability.

RAID -5/6

RAID-5/6 erasure coding is a space efficiency feature optimized for all-flash configurations of vSAN 6.2.

Interoperability with Other VMware Solutions

vSAN storage efficiency technologies will yield different levels of benefits on various workloads even within the same product family.

Storage Efficiency Use Case Examples

Storage characteristics vary among different workload types. Some workloads have native data reduction features, while others can be very sensitive to less than predictable conditions.

Summary

Hyper-Converged solutions featuring all-flash storage are the future as they continue to decrease in cost and offer dramatically better performance when compared to magnetic disks.
