Elver Sena Sosa (@ELVERs_Opinion) explains how Erasure Coding (Raid 5/6) works with vSAN. Space efficiency features such as deduplication, compression, and erasure coding reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of storage.
Brian Wuchner (@bwuch) demonstrated the vCenter Server Converge Tool in the 6.7 U1 VCSA to convert an external Platform Services Controller (PSC) into an embedded configuration.

Continuing with our KBTV Webinar Series, in this latest KBTV Webinar you will learn some great tips and tricks you can use in Ruby vSphere Console (RVC) for managing a Virtual SAN environment. Covered in this video demonstration are various commands that can be used within Ruby vSphere Console (RVC), including:
– “vsan.disks_stats” Useful for capacity planning, management of disk groups and monitoring the health of physical disks
– “vsan.check_state” Useful for troubleshooting data unavailability situations and understanding object health in the VSAN cluster
– “vsan.resync_dashboard” Useful for visibility into data resync when changing storage policies
– “vsan.whatif_host_failures” Useful for capacity planning on future VSAN nodes and understanding VSAN’s ability to tolerate node failures.
