  • 1.  vSAN default Storage Policy Raid Configuration

    Posted Jun 22, 2017 01:38 AM

    Hi All,

    I am new to vSAN. In default vSAN storage policy, there is no raid configuration information. My requirement is to have Raid-1 as default.

    Unfortunately, I cant find any documentation on this. Hope some experts can advise on this.

    Thanks,

    Max

    Hello Max,

    Welcome to Communities and welcome to vSAN!

    As you can see from your screenshot the 'Virtual SAN Default Storage Policy' has 'Failures To Tolerate = 1' (FTT=1), this is a Raid-1 configuration in that there are two replica data components created for each Object that this policy is applied to.

    This document gives an overview of some of the different Rule-sets that can be applied using Storage Policies and their function:
