You can make vSAN operational in a production environment by using dashboards to evaluate, manage, and optimize the performance of vSAN objects and vSAN-enabled objects in your vCenter Server system.
vSAN extends the following features:
Discovers vSAN disk groups in a vSAN datastore.
Identifies the vSAN-enabled cluster compute resource, host system, and datastore objects in a vCenter Server system.
Automatically adds related vCenter Server components that are in the monitoring state.
