Announcing the All New vSAN Networking Guide -…

I’m delighted to announce a brand new vSAN Networking Guide. This is now published on our storagehub site. This new updated guide covers everything from support statements, the basics of NIC teaming on the vSAN network, including what options are available and the pros and cons of each approach, as well as supported topologies for standard deployments, 2-node deployments and stretched clusters. We also discuss the benefits of Network I/O Control. Remember vSAN entitled you to a distributed switch, which in turn means you can benefit from the features of Network I/O Control.
