I have been having a look at this, and I am struggling to work out the use case scenarios in an SME setup when a vSan like this is a better approach than merely running the VMs off the internal storage. I have come up with the following 2 situations, and wondered if you could comment:
(1) when using clustering to provide application HA
there would be two or more VMs setup in a cluster supporting the relevant application(s) and we want the shared vSan storage accessible from all the VMs to facilitate failover of cluster nodes
(2) multiple ESXi hosts
we have one ESXi host with a large quantity of internal storage, and one or more other hosts with smaller internal storage. The VMs running on all three hosts can be stored of the single vSan on the first host - enables VMs to be "moved" between hosts
