  • 1.  Licenses Requirement for vSAN 2 Node Cluster

    Posted Jul 05, 2019 07:46 AM

    Hi Everyone,

    1. Is that mandatory to use vSAN ROBO licenses for a 2 node vSAN cluster or we can use vSAN Standard per socket licenses as well.

    I have 2 Single socket Hosts, going for vSAN Standard per socket licensing will definitely cost me lesser than ROBO licensing & I can grow my cluster without 25VM limit, also without having to pay for upgrade from ROBO to per socket SKU.

    Regards,

    Moaz Anjum

    Hello Moaz,

    You can use any vSAN license.

    From the licensing guide itself:

    "2-node vSAN deployment model is not restricted to a specific vSAN license edition. In other words,

    any of the licensing editions can be used with a 2-host configuration."
