StoneFly Virtual SAN (vSAN)
The Most Powerful Software Defined Virtual SAN Solution
Fully integrated, cost-effective & secure virtual enterprise solution with support for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) optimized for ease-of-management & enhanced resource utilization.
What is StoneFly Virtual SAN (vSAN)
StoneFly virtual SAN or vSAN solution is a storage hypervisor that virtualizes storage resources and enables users to effectively leverage storage capacities for virtual block mode storage.
WIth support for VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Citrix (or XenServer) hypervisors, the vSAN solution recognizes iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC) protocols making it compatible with most mainstream servers and purpose-built HCI appliances.
StoneFly vSAN solution is also the only virtual SAN in the market that supports multiple hypervisors and clouds like Azure, AWS, etc.

Top 5 Reasons to Use StoneFly Virtual SAN Solution
Provision ransomware-proof immutable and air-gapped virtual data storage volumes using availble storage resources. Set policies to automatically isolate air-gapped volumes from the production network.
Data stored in immutable and air-gapped volumes cannot be edited, deleted, or overwritten. This protects your business-critical VMware VMs from ransomware attacks, human error, virus, and other malicious actors.
vSAN with Multi-Hypervisor Support
Compatibility is not an issue with our virtual SAN solution. That’s because our vSAN can be deployed on VMware, Hyper-V, KVM and Citrix (or XenServer) hypervisors. This flexibility enables our customers to build their virtual block storage using the virtualization they’re comfortable with.
The StoneFly virtual SAN solution also supports on-premises and cloud deployments with support for enterprise servers (Dell EMC, HPE, StoneFly HCI appliances) and Azure, AWS, StoneFly private cloud respectively.
Full Control Over Your Data & Virtual Storage
StoneFly virtual SAN solution uses a centralized management interface that offers real-time graphical performance reporting with useful insights about CPU usage, network usage, storage usage, and more. The simplified management and advanced reporting puts data owners in full control of their vSAN data.
Fully Use Your Storage Capacities
With StoneFly’s enterprise storage hypervisor, users can effectively virtualize and use all available storage resources even if they’re on different hosts or different nodes in the cluster.
The ability to fully utilize available storage resources also reduces data center footprint. With our vSAN, users can use all unused storage space before having to purchase new hardware appliances and switches.
Our virtual SAN solutions supports all kinds of iSCSI and Fibre Channel (FC) infrastructures.
Get the performance and affordability of the cloud with StoneFly virtual SAN solution. The experience is the same as running your block mode workloads (relational databases, EHR, CRM, etc.) in the cloud but without latency, file size and bandwidth concerns.
With the virtual SAN solution, your IT infrastructure will need less hardware, less switches, and consequently less maintenance thereby greatly reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improving the Return on Investments (ROIs).
