vSAN is deployed, scaled, and lifecycle-managed with SDDC Manager and VxRail HCI System software automation. Workload domains with VxRail vSAN clusters can be configured quickly and can be ready to use without having to make complex changes within VxRail hardware. vSAN Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM) allows for storage characteristics such as primary failures to tolerate and disk striping. Storage settings can be changed in software at a VM or object-level non-disruptively with just a few clicks. Compare this with traditional array-based storage which often requires hardware changes and updates across a whole LUN or volume which can be time consuming and often risky.
