SAN Assessment

Unleash the savings and efficiencies
within your virtual network.

Interested in discovering how Virtual SAN (vSAN) can optimize your environment? SHI can help! The VMware vSAN Assessment tool helps you validate vSAN's benefits to your organization by providing TCO analysis, hardware guidance and sizing recommendations specific to your infrastructure in just one week.

The Process

SHI’s VMware experts work with you for one week to install the vSAN Assessment software, analyze your environment, and provide business and technical recommendations to maximize your IT investment.

vSAN Assessment Software tools and procedures include:


vSAN Assessment Portal - This SaaS-based application receives I/O traces from your infrastructures and presents detailed results.


vSAN Assessment Tool Collector - Gathers data from your environment and sends it to the Assessment Portal – without collecting or storing any sensitive information.


Environment Analysis - Identifies all virtual machines that are suitable candidates for vSAN and the best-fit architecture (hybrid or all-flash).

TCO and Sizing Calculator - Automatically imports and reviews vSAN cluster sizing recommendations gathered through the Environment Analysis and provides vSAN savings by year, TCO without vSAN, and TCO with vSAN.


By engaging in the vSAN Assessment, you’ll receive an array of benefits including:

  • A dedicated SHI-VMware team, consisting of pre-sales support, renewal and technical pre-sales experts
  • Customized reporting results
  • Cluster sizing and hardware recommendations
  • Estimated storage savings (CAPEX vs. OPEX)
  • TCO analysis comparison
