Micron Accelerated VMware vSAN Ready Nodes


Deliver compute and storage resources through a common virtualized platform — getting accelerated and predictable performance — with our hyperconverged, all-flash VMware vSAN 6.2 Ready Nodes. Their scale-out architecture lets you optimize the data I/O path while minimizing CPU impact.

How It’s Built

The Micron All-Flash Accelerated VMware vSAN 6.2 Ready Nodes are industry-standard Supermicro x86 servers running vSAN software, with optimized Micron SATA SSDs. These solutions allow you to scale cost-effectively by incrementally adding the compute and/or SSD storage that you need when you need it. And your IT experts can perform enterprise-class management through the VMware vSphere web client.







The Micron Accelerated NexentaEdge Solution’s configuration has been tested and documented by Micron — giving it our SOLID Ready seal of approval.


Want to Build Your Own?

You can purchase the full solution (Supermicro server with Micron SSDs and memory optimized for vSAN) directly from Supermicro, or you can build your own solution following Micron’s SOLID Ready reference architecture with these vSAN-certified components:

  • Supermicro 2U Ultra SYS-2028U-TNRT+
  • Micron SSDs
  • Micron memory
  • Your choice of network adapter

Why VMware vSAN? 

  • Increase efficiency: Get an overall increase in storage efficiency with vSAN 6.2’s inline data deduplication and compression.
  • Protect your data: Improve usable storage capacity while leaving data protection levels unchanged thanks to erasure coding.
  • Improve performance quality: Help to eliminate “noisy-neighbor” performance challenges with the VM-specific performance and control of VvSAN 6.2.

Key Benefits

The Micron all-flash Accelerated VMware vSAN solutions provide compelling value for your VMware environment, including:

  • High performance: Experience better responsiveness and lower latency compared to hybrid thanks to firmware enhancements in the M510DC SSD.
  • High flexibility: Purchase a “turn-key” platform (just add software) or build your own ready nodes with the help of our detailed reference architecture.  
  • Easy expansion: To expand capacity or performance, simply add hosts to the Ready Node cluster or add SSDs to a host. No need for overprovisioning!
  • Low TCO: Bring better results and more value to your data center with solutions that are optimized by engineering experts at the platform level.
