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.
